After Surgery Caregivers Help Those Needing Care Post Surgery

With the average age of the population rising, it's not uncommon to hear reports of family members and friends scheduled for surgery. Treatment for pain after surgery depends on the type of pain you're experiencing. As people don't like to opt for medication based pain reliefs, it may be helpful to look into homeopathic or natural remedies. Some options are:
Nerve-related pain may be treated with over-the-counter or prescription pain medications, including painkillers or medications used to treat seizures. Local anesthetics may also help relieve pain due to nerve damage.
Inflammation of the skin may be treated with topical pain medications, such as capsaicin, which has been effective in treating jabbing pain.
Muscle spasms have been effectively treated with injections of Botox, the same substance used to reduce wrinkles.
Alternative therapies including acupuncture, acupressure, transcutaneous nerve stimulation, relaxation training, biofeedback, hypnosis and yoga also may be of benefit in reducing pain. Talk with your doctor about what may offer you the most relief.
