Chronic pain affects 11.2% of American adults according to the Medical Daily and is defined as a complicated condition in which sufferers feel aches and pains in their joints, bones or muscles for months or even years. Determining the cause of the pain, whether it’s from an injury, infection or inflammation, can be difficult resulting in month or years of pain.
Alternative treatments for chronic pain can offer more holistic ways for people to manage their chronic pain rather than risk narcotic addiction. According to the NIH analysis, 17.7% of chronic pain patients seeking out complementary treatments use natural products, 10.9% turn to deep breathing and 10.1% practice yoga, tai chi, or qi gong.
Float therapy for chronic pain is one of the most effective natural chronic pain relief treatments. By combining deep breathing and sensory deprivation, floaters experience complete relaxation and relief in areas of your body that are normally painful. According to a Canadian pain research and management study, floating participants exhibited lowered blood pressure, reduced pain, anxiety and depression post-float sessions. More and more research is proving that flotation therapy is an effective, noninvasive method for treating stress-related pain.
