how to reduce the effect of pain

Video made my Dr. George Ampat, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Liverpool. Patients with musculo-skeletal

or joint pain are driven to take more and more painkillers. Unfortunately, it does not help. One only gets

addicted to the painkillers. Lifestyle measures do help with musculoskeletal and arthritic pain. Exercising

without fear is important. Patients develop kinesiophobia or fear of movement. They then do no exercise.

When they do not exercise the muscles become weak. This provides less support to the bone and joints. The

decreased support increases the instability and the pain. Similarly eating fruits and vegetables increases

the good bacteria in the intestine. Eating meats allow bad bacteria to develop in the intestine. Man is a

frugivore and not a carnivore. Our intestines are 9 times the length of the body like chimps, gorillas and

other frugivores. Carnivores have a short intestine. Having a purpose and Ikigai is also important. Family

and friends help reduce the effect of pain. Free from pain.
