Pain can be a frustrating experience to live with and can significantly impact your quality of life. There are effective prescription options available to treat pain, but many of them, such as opioids, aren’t tolerable for some people. Because of this, more individuals are turning to alternative options to help manage their pain.

There is “regular” pain (also called nociceptive pain), which is what we experience from injuries and/or conditions like broken bones, arthritis, bruises and cuts. The other type of pain is nerve pain (also called neuropathic pain) which occurs when the body’s nervous system is malfunctioning or damaged. This can happen if we slip a disk in our spine or have deterioration of our nerves from medical conditions like diabetes. Nerve pain can be described as:

  • Stabbing
  • Numbness
  • Burning
  • Tingling
  • Electric shock
