Explaining Pain

Not all pain is the same. Muscle pain, joint pain, headaches, and the list goes on. There is pain that results from injury, pain from the everyday strains of life, and pain resulting from chronic health conditions. We’re here to address it all.

GR8NESS explains the different types of pain, what each type means, why individuals perceive pain in different ways, and more. Pain is not the same for everyone, and our goal is to provide readers with real-life solutions that can work for you as an individual.

While some pain is undoubtedly more debilitating, no one should have to live with impaired quality of life. Our goal is to help you identify the type of pain you’re experiencing, how we cope with pain ourselves, and give you pain management ideas to discuss with your doctor.

Natural Remedies for Pain

We know that individuals suffering from long-term pain often look for natural pain management techniques to augment doctor-prescribed treatments. At GR8NESS, we compile the best methods we find. From natural herbs to holistic treatment options, there are many methods to consider when addressing pain.

Acupuncture, foods to decrease inflammation, and CBD, if there’s a proclaimed natural pain management technique out there, we explore it and bring you our findings.

We also seek to debunk myths surrounding pain treatment. You’ll see many articles circulating the internet, making vast claims about the effectiveness of various natural remedies for pain.

Explaining Over-the-Counter Medications

When it comes to pain relief, taking over-the-counter (OTC) medications can seem unavoidable. In no way do we discourage individuals from taking OTC meds, or any other medicines prescribed by their doctor, to alleviate symptoms.

Instead, we break down the differences in types of medication and provide insight on which pain reliever may work best for your condition. We also want to help you save money when shopping for OTC pain relievers and give an extensive breakdown on generic vs. name-brand medications so that you can make informed shopping decisions.

Answering All Questions

Do you find yourself in a bind, wondering whether to treat your pain or injury with hot or cold compresses? We explore which method may be most effective based on your symptoms. Or, are you wondering how to stop muscle spasms after an intense workout? Gym enthusiasts can find answers here too.

Additionally, we explore the traditional pain management industry, the pain scale, and consumer trends in pain relief. We provide this information to you not as medical experts, but as writers who are looking to treat pain just like you.
