Wellness GIFT GUIDE for Chronic Pain sufferers

 

wellness gifts for chronic pain

I have researched nearly every tool that I use to help ease my chronic pain. Some help more than others, but following are tried and true products that help to make my life a little more bearable…

Aside from massage therapy, which I highly recommend, and being completely buoyant in water, heat probably provides me with the most relief. So, I love both my microwaveable heat packs, and moist-heat heating pad. The long magic bag that can wrap over my shoulders, and the large size heating pad that will extend from neck down to tail-bone…

1. Magic Bag Extended Combo Pack

2. Theratherm Digital Moist Heating Pad – Large

There are a number of products on the market for topical pain relief, extra strength Voltaren provides me with a bit of relief…

For more targeted pain relief I use a tens machine on trigger points that just won’t stop aggravating me…

4. TENS MACHINE (TENS 7000) FOR PAIN RELIEF AND MUSCLE STIMULATION

 

My sleep suffers significantly as does many chronic pain sufferers’, so I have found a few tools to help including aromotherapy essential oils and blue light blockers…

5. ArtNaturals Aromatherapy Essential Oil and Diffuser Set

6. Amber light & reading glasses – Ultimate Sleep Bundle

We all need to stay hydrated for optimal health, but pain sufferers especially need to keep those toxins flushing. I really like infusing my water with lemons or different varieties of frozen fruit. A travel bottle and infuser in one is a great gift for someone who needs to keep the water handy and wants to add some flavour and/or additional health benefits from infusion…

8. 2-in-1 Infuser Water Bottle,CLINE Sport Water Bottles BPA Free Gym Water Bottle with Fruit Lemon Squeezer

I take a lot of medications and supplements, and with the brain fog caused by meds, lack of sleep and the pain itself, I need a lot of reminders. I use an app that serves both as a reminder and a log, and still need an organizer for when I forget to log my meds and have no recollection if I took them or not…

9. MEDca Pop-Up Weekly Pill Organizer, Single Box and 4 Daily Compartments

 

I have found hydrotherapy to be the ultimate in pain relief, before purchasing a permanent hottub with therapeutic jets I had an inflatable hottub. I used it outdoors in the summer, and in my basement in the winter…

10. AQUAPARX 600SPA 155 cm Inflatable Hot Tub

I’ve been listening to a number of podcasts dedicated to improved health and chronic pain. Dr. Joe Tatta has a fantastic podcast focused on functional medicine and non-opioid treatment of pain. He recently published the book “Heal Your Pain Now”. I am just reading it now, but find it easy to read and like the focus of mind, movement and nutrition.

11. Heal Your Pain Now: The Revolutionary Program to Reset Your Brain and Body for a Pain-Free Life

 

When I spend a lot of time on the couch, or in my recliner I love my lap desk. I have a Sofia & Sam, that includes a task light (but not the extendable mouse pad). I don’t use the task light often, mainly because I am trying to reduce the bright LED light exposure to try to help my sleep…

12. Sofia + Sam Multi Tasking Lap Desk with USB Light (Black Top) | Supports Laptops Up To 15 Inches

Finally, an extra gift idea, simply a basket or bin comes in really handy. I had set up a draw in the coffee table with all of my necessities, but have recently filled a tub with the things I most need close by, and now can move from recliner to couch without having to move more than my bin and perhaps my lapdesk if I am computing…

13. LARGE ROUND BIN – 15×16″ with O-ring and thick, sturdy material that holds shape and gives structure, simply collapse bin and store when not in use

Hopefully this Gift Guide for chronic pain sufferers gave you some great shopping ideas!
