Life can certainly be painful. Approximately one-third of Americans report they feel aches and pains “very often” or “often”— more than people in any other country, according to a new National Bureau of Economic Research survey titled, “Unhappiness and Pain in Modern America.” While some pain will have us rushing to the emergency room, other aches and pains can be neglected especially if the source of pain is something we enjoy doing, or habitually cannot live without. Hobbies like gardening and running, and even texting can leave us sore. The problem is pain can be hard for doctors to pinpoint.
Dr. Christine Horner, MD, is an award-winning author of, ‘Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty.’ and a leading expert in natural health. She says that doctors often get trigger happy when it comes to prescribing treatments for acute pain that may be better suited for more severe or chronic pain. She says a better approach to managing pain is to identify the triggers and opt for lifestyle modifications and nonprescription choices first.
