What to do if you have aches and pains in your body…

My job is very physically demanding and hard on the body. We lift human beings, and some a not light. If you do it wrong, you can get hurt. Sometimes they move when we are transferring them.

I have a family history of arthritis. I can have achy muscles and joints.

Here are a few things that I do for pain, and some things that you can do as well.

Disclosure: You should always consult your doctor, and not replace any advice with doctors.

I use a foot spa machine, that has bubbles, and I put epsom salt in it, and soak my feet, and let the machine do its work. I love it for my aching feet. I walk all day long. I walk on average 6 miles at work.

See here I am sitting and blogging as we speak, with my feet in the foot spa machine:

I also use insoles for my shoes. It makes a huge difference.

I have a massage chair. I bought it on Ebay, 5 years ago, for around $400. It helps a lot! I would imagine that I would be in a lot more pain without it!

I’m sure these neck, and foot massagers would be great, but I haven’t been able to buy them yet:

Soak your bones in the hot tub or in the bath at home with epsom salt! Heat opens up the blood vessels which brings more blood to the area, which relieves pain!

Eat a healthy diet. Junk food causes inflammation!

Streching works wonders for pain! I use a stretch band for my legs and back, and I do some other stretches.

Lifting weights is great! It makes your muscles stronger and helps you avoid injury. Being active or doing cardio is helpful as well.

If need be, always consult your doctor if you have health problems before you start a new exercise.

Those are tips that I have to manage my pain from my job.

Hope these are helpful.

Thanks for reading.

    Great suggestions! I try to exercise more since I realized that my lack of enough exercise the previous years had caused me several issues. I have started seeing the difference. I also try to offer massage to myself whenever it is possible.

      Thanks for the comment. I’ve gained a lot of weight over the years, and struggle to find time and discipline to exercise.

      I’m sorry you have pain. I worked an extra day this week, and couldn’t even get all the groceries I wanted.

      Thank you for the comment and visit! I only have 12 pound weights, and I am having trouble finding other weights for a decent price.

    This was really useful to read as I am starting to develop recurring back pain that’s beginning to frustrate me (nothing too serious). I will have to try some of your tips out as it would be nice not to have these aches and pains.

      Glad I can help. Hope the back pain gets better. To be honest, when I stretch and work out, I feel so much better. Thanks for the visit and comment.

    Great tips! I would love to have a massage chair. If I have a spasm or very concentrated muscle pain, I put an ice pack on it for 5 minutes, and then hot water bottle for 5 minutes, and rotate for about half an hour. It works wonders!
