5 Herbs That Help With Pain Management

By Brandi Swieter

Dealing with pain on a regular basis starts to wear down the mind and body. Many people struggle with back pain, neck pain, headaches and more as they attempt to make it through their workdays and get things accomplished. With the help of five different herbs, some pain management can come into play, reducing symptoms and allowing those people to make it through their busy schedules a bit easier.

Ginger for Joint Pain

Achy joints and muscles are a common complaint among workers. Whether someone has to sit at their desk all day long for their job or perform manual labor that has them bending and twisting frequently, it can take a toll on the body and leave it feeling sore. Ginger extract helps to stop inflammation, which can help the achiness felt in these areas.

Feverfew for Headaches

When a headache can’t be treated with an aspirin or two, some other options need to be tried. Feverfew helps to prevent inflammation and restricts the blood vessels from contracting. After working to relieve the muscle spasms often occurring during a headache, the pain lessens and becomes much more bearable.

Valerian Root for Muscle Spasms

Overly tense muscles can prove painful if they cannot be worked out properly. Many people try massage as a first resort, but it often only lessens the pain a small amount, still leaving aches and spasms to occur. Valerian root is one option to try, as it has an antispasmodic effect that slows down spasms and reduces tension in the body.

Peppermint as a Painkiller

A natural pain killer, peppermint oil works well to sooth aches and pains within the body. Many use it for sore muscles and tension headaches. You can use the herb in essential oil form and breathe it in to gain its effects, or drink it in tea.

Oregano for Everything

Muscle spasms, arthritis pain, migraines, and even a sore throat can all be eased by oregano. Many people use the spice as a way to add flavor to their food without realizing the powerful effects it can have on the body if using the right kind. Use true oil of oregano to reap the benefits.

A visit to a doctor of chiropractic should be first on the list of things to do when pain is experienced, but trying out a few herbs couldn’t hurt. These five options are said to help with pain management, possibly lessening symptoms and allowing people to make it through their day before they can visit their chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic.
