Q: explain the importance of a holistic approach to managing pain and discomfort
A: The holistic approach to treatment of pain arising from an injury focuses on 1) relieving pain and inflammation without harming the body and 2) promoting the body's healing response so that the area of injury is healed as quickly and completely as [ possible. Let's look at these two strategies in detail so that you understand what might be your best approach to healing a chronic pain problem. 1)
Relieving pain and inflammation without harming the body. There are a number of effective ways to relieve pain and inflammation. Some of the treatments used in the clinic that relieve pain are chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, massage, ice and hot packs and electrical muscle stimulation. Natural anti-inflammatory herbs can work as well as pain relieving drugs and don't have the dangerous side effects that many drugs do. Different combinations of herbs can be used to target different types of pain or sources of pain. Pain sources could be from an injury, due to degenerative arthritis in a joint, from an auto-immune condition such as rheumatoid arthritis, from a non-inflammatory condition such as fibromyalgia, or due to nerve pain. Each of these will respond better to certain herbs and nutrients. 2) Promoting the body's healing response. The same remedies which alleviate pain and inflammation also support the body's healing response. But in this day and age of stress and fast food, many people benefit from additional strategies to promote the body's overall healing response. In my 24 years in clinical practice (1986 to present) I have seen a deterioration in people's healing response- how well their bodies are able to heal injuries. When someone has suffered an injury, as in an automobile accident, the body's healing response is called into action. When there is a poor healing response the injuries heal slowly and pain is prolonged. When there is an optimal healing response the injuries heal more quickly and the pain disappears more quickly.............. ]

User: describe different approaches to alleviate pain and minimise discomfort

Weegy: Managing Your Pain R.I.C.E. RICE is the acronym used for Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. It is used as the best initial treatment of soft tissue injuries such as sprains, strains, and contusions. [ The combination of RICE helps reduce inflammation that occurs after acute injury. It is important to remember that the earlier this treatment is put into place, the more effective it is. Aspirin Therapy known as acetyl-salicylic acid, aspirin is the oldest and most widely used pain medication. Aspirin works by suppressing the product of prostaglandins. These hormone-like substances stimulate the nerve endings that send pain messages to the brain. Long term use of aspirin may also cause unwanted side effects, such as: stomach bleeding, bleeding in the brain, kidney failure, and other kinds of strokes. ]
