Home Remedies to Treat Pain
There are many home remedies to help those suffering with acute and chronic pain.
Perhaps the cheapest and most effective home pain remedy is an ice pack. Usually ice should be applied for the first 24 to 48 hours following a strain or sprain type injury. You can also use ice initially on a contusion or bruise.
An ice pack can also be very effective for use during a migraine headache attack when applied to the back of the neck.
Moist Heat Pack
Moist heat can be used on a muscle strain after the swelling and redness is gone. You should be very careful if using an electric heating pad that you do not fall asleep with it on. Make sure yours has a timer and you set it for no longer than 15 or 20 minutes.
