If there are underlying factors that have led to this episode of pain or you have ongoing pain you may need to seek advice. Taking pain relief medication will not address the cause of the pain. Your body may well heal itself but in some situations extra help and advice will enable you to find solutions for improving your pain.
Always seek medical advice if you have a medical condition or are taking other medications.
