Hi gosiatracz6,

Welcome to TPC! I’m so glad you found us and thank you for being a good caregiver for your husband. As someone who lives with pain, I can tell you that it’s really important to have a good support system.

I can tell you from personal experience that massage really helped me to be able to get out of my wheelchair and walk again. I think that every person has to find the right combination of treatments that works for them. Each situation is so different and complicated, but it helped me to keep a pain journal and write down the levels of pain. how much sleep I was getting, what kind of treatments I had that day/week, etc. and how much physical activity I’ve participated in. A journal helped me really see what things were helping and which weren’t.

Thanks for all you are doing for your hubby.
