Excellent insight on managing chronic pain from the clinical director of the Pain Rehabilitation Center at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn:

"We focus on how to get you back into your life by focusing on function instead of eliminating symptoms and pain. When I refer to functioning, I mean getting back into important areas of your life such as work, social activities, and recreation. If you're waiting for pain to go away, you're never going to get back into your life. When that happens, people get despondent, they get depressed.
...
When you're in chronic pain and it's poorly managed, the nervous system can get out of whack. Your body behaves as if it's under stress all the time, even when it's not. Your muscles may be tense and your heart and breathing rates elevated, among other things." http://n.pr/2vFXBy8 #MassageTherapy

“The new Georgetown Law report argues that, since the effects of trauma can be physical, "body-mind" interventions, like yoga, may be able to uniquely address them. Regulated breathing, for example, calms the parasympathetic nervous system. Practicing staying in the moment counteracts some of the dissociative effects of trauma. And the physical activity of yoga, of course, can directly improve health.” http://n.pr/2s6qSnX #yoga #trauma

Glad to see this getting some mainstream coverage. Personally, I've only experienced very little relief from back pain with NSAIDs. In most situations, movement is the best medicine. If movement isn't an option or doesn't help, seek manual therapy (massage, chiropractic, etc) from a professional. http://ow.ly/Wwqi309hFYt
