If pain such as arthritis, backache, fibromyalgia, or other chronic pain is interfering with your daily life, you may be looking for a way to relieve discomfort that doesn't involve drugs.

Fortunately, there are some techniques such as meditation, yoga, gentle exercise, and breathing that may help reduce your need for pain medication.
