CBD & The importance of Physiotherapy

Funded and supported by CBDexperia @ www.CBDexperia.com

It is wide known the benefits of CBD for health and medical based conditions. However, we can only sell CBD as a food supplement as were not part of the big Pharmaceutical companies chain of command.

Never the less, the majority of CBD consumers are taking it for ailments such as pain and muscle issues, a very common reason is sciatica.

Although it is well researched the benefits of CBD for such physical ailments, it is still no cure, CBD will help relax the muscles and dim or remove the pain, the underlining issue causing the conditions are still there.

Its so very important to ensure that for a long-term solution of getting better you need to consult a physiotherapist as they can help repair the damage that is causing your pains.

Premier physiotherapy clinicis a private physiotherapist based in Latham Lancashire UK, people travel from all over the country to see Oliver as his clinic is one of the best in the country.

They tailor their sessions to suit each person, they are very informative, sensitive and knowledgable and there prices are not as expensive as you may imagine with the word private involved, making visiting them a wonderful experience.

When you combine the use of CBD with a good quality and well-educated physiotherapist the results are life changing.

Its worth remembering that a physiotherapist will need to examine you to locate the source of the issue, therefore your first few sessions will be locating the issue rather than aiding it, therefore you should not expect results instantly.

Physiotherapyrequires patience and dedication, you will need to do some very basic, easy and quick exercises at home for your treatment to be worth while.

Physiotherapy requires you to work with the physiotherapist to get you better, the physiotherapist can not do it all for you.

A physiotherapist should not make your condition worse, with our referred physiotherapist linked in this post we have not had any reports of worsening effects, we contract Oliver from Premier physiotherapy clinic for our work force.

Fast facts

  1. Some people use cannabidiol (CBD) oil to help relieve pain with 100% success.
  2. Many say that CBD has provided better pain relief than normal pain medications.
  3. CBD oil is extracted from the hemp plant. It’s a type of cannabinoid that doesn’t cause the “high” feeling associated with cannabis.
  4. CBD may cause side effects that include forgetfulness.
  5. CBD should be avoided by those who suffer from hypotension.
  6. Our own bodies generate a type of CBD and stores excess CBD in our fat cells to use later.

Cannabidiol (CBD) oil is used by some people with chronic pain. CBD oil may reduce pain, inflammation, and overall discomfort related to a variety of health conditions. CBD oil is a product made from hemp. It’s a type of cannabinoid, a chemical found naturally in hemp plants, it is a different plant to weed, cannabis or skunk but is in the same family of plants. Hemp and CBD doesn’t cause the “high” feeling often associated with cannabis, which is caused by a different type of cannabinoid called THC.

Studies on CBD oil and pain management have shown a great deal of promise. CBD can offer an alternative for people who have chronic pain and rely on more dangerous, habit-forming medications like opioids. But there needs to be more research in order to verify the pain-relieving benefits of CBD oil, science shows that CBD can also be effective on our nerve based pain.

Keep reading to learn more about the potential benefits of CBD oil for pain. You can also talk with your doctor to see if it is an option for your condition.

CBD for chronic pain relief

Researchers think that CBD interacts with receptors in your brain and immune system. Receptors are tiny proteins attached to your cells that receive chemical signals from different stimuli and help your cells respond. This creates anti-inflammatory and pain killing effects that help with pain management. This means that CBD oil may help people with chronic pain, such as chronic back pain.

One 2008 review (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2503660/) assessed how good CBD works to relieve chronic pain. The review looked at studies conducted between the late 1980s and 2007. Based on these reviews, researchers concludedCBD was effective in overall pain management without adverse side effects. They also noted that CBD was beneficial in treating insomnia related to chronic pain.

The authors of the study also noted that CBD was most helpful in people with multiple sclerosis (MS).

CBD for arthritis pain relief

A 2016 study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4851925/) looked at the use of CBD in rats with arthritis. Researchers applied CBD gel to rats for four days in a row. They applied 0.6, 3.1, 6.2, and 62.3 milligrams per day. The researchers noted reduced inflammation and overall pain in the rats’ affected joints without side effects.

The anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving effects of the CBD gel could hold promise for people with arthritis. However, more human studies are needed.

CBD for cancer treatment relief

CBD oil is also used by some people who have cancer. A few studies in mice have shown a reduction of cancerous tumors. But most human studies have involved research into the role of CBD oil in managing pain related to cancer and cancer treatment. The National Cancer Institute (NCI) (https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/treatment/cam/patient/cannabis-pdq#link/_15) has pointed to CBD as a possible option for relieving symptoms caused by chemotherapy.

One study by the NCI tested CBD oil extracts sprayed into the mouth. The CBD oil was used in conjunction with opioids. This study revealed better pain management with the help of CBD oil. But more research is still needed.

Research also shows that CBD is generated in our own bodies, in tiny amounts, women produce lots of CBD in breast milk to help with the baby’s development, this is 1 main reason breast milk is far superior over powdered milk formula. Still our bodies don’t produce enough CBD to aid with some conditions, by taking CBD as a supplement we can add more to our bodies system.

 

Conclusion

Based on the information linked above you can see how our conclusion and advise bellow is valid, it is not medical advice nor is it a medical claim, but mealy advise on using a product based on research from government medical professionals.

CBD when taken in excess will be stored in our fat cells to use later, based on this for those who suffer chronic or bad conditions it may be worth consuming a large dose of CBD of around 300mg over a day or two, by vaping the product you should see results within minutes to hours providing its vaped correctly (see tips bellow). Once you have consumed the high dose you should top up  with smaller doses each day at the onset of pain and discontinue once the pain disappears, repeat each day as and when need, this dose would be different to each person, if its pain then its best to dose to keep you out of pain.

Tip 1.Is to inhale the product and hold it in, this is important as it allows your body to consume the entire dose rather than exhaling 80% of the CBD, saving money and getting a better result.

Tip 2.Vaping on a good ecigarette is best, using the pen type is good, the style that are about as wide as a cigar are best for chronic, if using a mod box (the type that produce huge vapour clouds) that has variable wattage try to keep it bellow 25 watts on a 0,5ohm coil or 55 watts on a 0.15 ohm coil. Ideal Watts would be at around 15-20 watts to prevent burning off the cbd.

Tip 3CBD is stored in fat cells, the longer you take CBD the less you need for the same effect, therefore, over a few weeks you should get the same result from as little as 10mg of CBD even if it originally took 300mg to obtain the same effect.

Tip 4.CBD will not FIX a problem, pain is caused for a reason, in most conditions activities such as physiotherapy could fix the problem that causes the pain, CBD has the potential based on research above to MASK the pain to offer temporary relief until the CBD levels lower, for long term pain management it would be best to seek medical advice on how to resolve the source of pain and use CBD to help with the management of the pain while working with medical professionals to resolve the source of pain.

Tip 5. Its is suggested in medical journals such as the ones linked above that a person is best to have a build up supply of cbd in fat cells for better effects for pain management, based on this it would be reasonable to comment that underweight persons may struggle to get a satisfactory result from CBD for some conditions or may have results that last a minimal time, based on the detailed information from medical journals it would also suggest that persons that are morbidly obese may need to consume a lot of CBD making it a very expensive form of therapy. However there is no evidence that makes this comment a fact.

Tip 6.It is also recommended that you do at least 30 minutes of exercise daily while using CBD (exercise that gets your heart pumping), exercise is believed to increase blood flow around the body and therefore increase the amount of CBD running through your system, this would increase the likely hood of CBD hitting the source of pain. However there is no evidence that makes this comment a fact it is a suggestion that seems to show better results based on what people report.

Understanding Pain & CBD Pain Relief, Using CBD for Pain Relief

Funded and supported by CBDexperia @ www.CBDexperia.com

Before we begin, a few posts we have produced may also be useful to you, such as a post about the scientific research behind CBD in relation to Pain Relief, and The importance of CBD along side Physiotherapy.

 

It’s important to be able to manage pain in multiple ways than relying on Pain medications or CBD to do the job for you. By combining multiple strategies to manage your pain will offer results to allow you to run a normal pain-free life.

To do this you need to understand how pain works, The truth is, nobody knows how pain works, it’s very complicated, understanding the basics is just as good and the results are unbelievable.

We will talk about the top most common reasons that increase pain levels and how to reduce them to keep your pain down to a minimum.

The top reasons for increased or raised pain are:

  • Stress
  • Tiredness
  • Unbalanced diet
  • Mental wellbeing
  • Physical Wellbeing
  • Medications

These will not cause pain but will slow down the healing process and intensify the feeling of pain.

You may be thinking to your self, what does stress and the rest have to do with pain?, shorly they can’t contribute.

If you are thinking this then you are sadly mistaken, please do not dismiss this, we will explain it all and it will all make sense, we urge you to read this entire page.

It goes without saying that pain is a highly unpleasant sensation that we do not like, and we will do just about anything to rid ourselves of pain out of desperation. Although two people may have the same condition or cause of pain they may both feel it differently due to a number of basic factors bullet pointed above.

We have seen a huge amount of people come to us to buy our CBD products to relief pain, and although CBD does work for such issues, its important to understand that CBD could be making your condition degrade further.

Why? We feel pain to protect us from damage and to remove our selfs from dangerous situations, Pain is a self defence and protection mechanism. As CBD works so well at pain relief when taken properly (and enough of it) you will naturally ignore the need to correct your posture or limit the pressure on the area that is causing you pain, therefore increasing the damage long term.

So, how do we protect our selfs from further damage while taking CBD? By simply being self aware and having the knowledge within this post.

Lets understand pain and how it’s processed: We feel pain when a signal is sent through nerve fibers to the brain for interpretation. In fact we don’t actually feel pain at the source of damage, we just think we are, our brain is very sophisticated and so is our body.

If you scrape your leg, your nerve fibres sends a signal to the brain, one part of the brain determines which part of the body the signal came from, another part of the brain is responsible for figuring out the threat level and damage and then your conscience part of the brain is responsible for the visual aspect and your response to it then links all the data together to conclude a reaction.

Pain is then signalled within the brain, and remains there, not at the source of damage. Sometimes the brain can get this wrong and we can feel pain down a leg when we have a nerve trapped in the lower spine. The greatest trick is distraction, distraction is the best pain relief. Some pains are simply that bad it can’t be distracted.

Stresscan make pain feel more intense, When stressed your body releases chemicals and your muscles contract, if you have any kind of pain stress is bound to make it far more intense, you must limit your stress levels right down to enable full pain management and relief. CBD helps in several ways, CBD relaxes the brain and muscles relieving that tension and in time reducing those chemicals.

Tirednessplays a key role, when we are overworked or just simply tired we tend to take shortcuts in the way we sit, eat, breath and relax, all this will build up tension in our muscles and most often brings us to a volatile state, making us short tempered and moody. This does not help pain, as it releases chemicals and tenses us up.  Get a good routine in place is key, maybe a little ylang ylang or Lavender essential oil in a diffuser or cream before bed.

Unbalanced Dietsalso play a role in our response to pain, without the correct spectrum of nutrients in the correct amounts we suffer badly, and our bodies just can’t heal a cause of pain while struggling to tick its self over. Plus so many foods have natural pain relief properties, such as flack or hemp seeds, curry powders such as turmeric and even garlic, are all anti-inflamitorys and pain relievers.

Mental and physical wellbeing helps in so many ways, simply getting a small dose of exercise and getting that blood pumping will have a huge difference to your pain levels, blood circulation is vital to recovery. You don’t need to be out of breath, just a walk for ten minutes a day or a light jog will do the trick. This will also improve your mental wellbeing, depression, anxiety and other negative mental conditions or thought processes can make you feel down and negative, and in turn magnify your pain ten fold, CBD is great for this as it relaxes the brain and calms the body responses to it, it may be good to try massage, or even meditation, don’t be so quick to shoot those recommendations down, they actually do offer real help for pain when used correctly.

Medicationare another aspect, medications don’t actually work, at best they may offer some form of deception, or temporary relief, medications are no fix for pain and some meds simply will not work for some pains, such as codeine will not work for nerve based pain, and ibuprofen will not work for a cut or wound. You should only use medication to aid the symptoms of pain while you work to fix the source of pain correctly.

Pain is ultimately in the head, using psychological strategies, physical strategies and maintaining a healthy diet is key.

Using CBD is brilliant to use and combining it with our advice above will give you results that no doctor can, why? because you did it the way nature intended it, the proper way. (seek medical advice before taking CBD and don’t just stop taking your medications without speaking with your doctor first)

 

In a nut shell: Chemical based medications will never fix you, simply sort your life style out, Get enough sleep, eat properly, avoid stressful situations, exercise a little and relax. Lets not forget to mention that all this is FREE.

Were not saying that you must lose weight and the rest of the medical boards blah, most thin people are the most unhealthiest over heavier people. Just get the blood running through the veins, pump the oxygen into your lungs and eat a few more fruit and vegetables a day.

Use CBD to aid you into relaxation, to de-stress, to calm the body and mind and to provide pain relief, that’s half your battle. Work on your diet and sleep routine, with a little exercise and your on the road to recovery, it is actually that easy to be pain free.
