It is one of those beautiful summer days, and you are out enjoying it with your kids, playing outside and basking in the sunshine. As you run along with them, you feel an old, familiar pain start in your knee. You ignore it at first, as you’re used to it rearing its ugly head every now and again, and you keep on running. The pain gets worse, and by the time you get home, you can hardly walk. Your old sports injury has come back to haunt you yet again, and you are riddled with pain for the next few days.
Sound familiar? As we get older, injuries that occurred when we were younger, can creep up again to cause us discomfort, slight pain, or even intense pain, depending on the level of injury. Perhaps the injured area is becoming slightly arthritic, perhaps there is tissue damage that never got properly treated, or perhaps there is inflammation around the joint that is causing additional pain. Whatever it might be, chronic pain can make it difficult to keep up with our busy lives and our busy children!
So, how do we cope with it? How can we get through our days, keep up with the kids, get all our work done, and not be suffering all day long? Sure, we could take painkillers to combat the discomfort and pain, but that comes with a slew of its own problems. Many painkillers are highly addictive, even when used as prescribed, and most (if not all) of them are not great to take long-term, as they are very hard on your body. All pain medication, including over-the-counter choices like acetaminophen and ibuprofen, come with side effects that can include stomach problems, nausea, constipation, and kidney damage.
None of these painkiller options sound very appealing, especially not for long-term relief. The truth of the matter is that as we continue to age, these old injuries will continue to plague us in the form of aches and pains, some minor and some severe, depending on the injuries and residual effects. Remaining on painkillers long-term is not a healthy option. What is needed is something that is natural, non-addictive, and safe to use every day to help us combat chronic pain.
Enter CBD oil. This miracle oil has been found to help a vast number of ailments, everything from anxiety to rheumatoid arthritis. It has been used for thousands of years to treat various types of pain, but it has only been recognized in the medical community in recent years. Known to reduce inflammation, CBD oil can help to target areas that are causing you pain by reducing the inflammation around the injured area. The other benefit to using CBD oil to treat chronic pain is that research has shown that people who have used CBD oil to treat pain did not build up a tolerance to it, therefore they would not need to continually increased their dosage, as can often be the case with painkillers.
