ALTERNATIVES FOR PAIN MANAGEMENT

Posted by grandmaR @grandmar, Mar 31, 2018

Hello!
I was wondering if anyone tried cryo therapy or medical marijuana for pain management. If you did, how did they/it work?
Thanks

And don't you worry about the ads that will come to fight legalization. They will scoop up every youth who has gotten a ticket and been in accident. To me this is proof that you should not use until you are 21.

I am sure, dementia will become a thing of the past. Once Mariuana is legal, ask families of dementia patients if they WD be willing to try it.

I totally agree, Allison.  I live in CO so MJ is legal.  But all I use is CBD oil on my sore joints prn.  I certainly don’t abuse it.  And is all about the moneymakers and narrow minded attitudes.  As we get older we need some quality of life and not to be sidelined by people who know nothing about chronic pain.  I’m in Rehab after lung cancer surgery, but my main complaint is a very sore shoulder, no doubt from therapy and they are aware of that.  MaryLou

I'm SO glad for you and the fact that you are able to "work thru the pain"!!! Unfortunately, my hobbies, including gardening, my 30 + house plants, chores like sweeping,mopping, that side to side motion, bending, stooping, lifting any size bag of trash, even picking up something causes my pain. Which feels like a concrete block sewn in to the middle of my back. But enough whining!!! I'm thrilled for you and that you have someone close who understands!!! Cudos for you. Your words, you, set an example that it can be done!! Thank you..for welcome g me into your group. I realizeI am not alone.

I am a great believer in music therapy.  I sing in the Church Choir.  Someone from the Church brought me in a boom box and my husband has brought in my favorite classical CDs.  MaryLou

@lioness, @oregongirl Good for you for being willing to try this alternative form of relief from chronic pain and for acknowledging the need for a “guide”. Just FYI. I started with capsules. However, they were very expensive. I am now vaping with cartridges from different strains and THC/CBD mixtures or dosages. I also use tinctures in my tea and coffee or just under my tongue. This assures that when I am traveling or just out with friends, I am able to medicate when needed and can stay ahead of the pain. That is so important. Good luck, stick with it and you will be rewarded.

I took a ten week tai chi class. It was specifically tai chi for arthritis. I have fibromyalgia and it was one recommendation from the doctors I see. I also have osteoarthritis and two tears in my labrum in my right shoulder. The tears limit my movement of my arm. This is a very relaxing form of exercise. I am able to move my arm a bit more each time I do this. I would recommend this for people with chronic pains.
