Help Mom Stay Pain Free

If your Mom is suffering from any kind of chronic pain, it can really take a toll on her physical and emotional well-being. As you ponder ideas for Mother's Day, it might be helpful to include different ways that will help her stay pain-free. Whether you live nearby or far away, here are some ways you can help Mom feel her best.

  1. Massage – A massage can be beneficial for both her physical symptoms and her mental health. You can purchase a gift certificate for a one-time massage, or buy her a package to use throughout the year. Be sure to select a place that offers a variety of choices, as her pain may limit her to more gentle options.
  2. Milkweed Balm – Available in a cream or a roll-on, Milkweed Balm is a natural, GMO-free topical product that may help ease her symptoms. If Mom is looking for an alternative to traditional medication, Milkweed Balm is sure to do the trick!
  3. Gym Membership – Whether she walks on the treadmill or takes a low-intensity aerobics class, exercise is essential for energy and momentum. Search out options based on location and offerings. Consider joining a gym together so she has a buddy to work out with on those tough days.
  4. Meal Delivery Service – If Mom has frequent flare-ups, she may not always be able to get out and about. Grocery shopping might be too taxing at times. Consider purchasing a subscription to a meal delivery service so Mom doesn't have to think about what to make for dinner. With all the ingredients included, she will have everything at her fingertips.
  5. Journal – You can pick up a pretty journal in a book store or gift shop. Journaling will not only help Mom keep track of her pain; it will give her a place to express how she feels about it. Sometimes the act of getting your thoughts on paper can relieve the stress associated with the pain.
