Reach for a Hot Cup of Pain Reducer
Coffee continues to get positive press in recent health news. This time, the beloved morning beverage is being touted for its pain-relieving effects. As a healing food, coffee has been singled out for its ability to help fight cancer.
But now, it seems coffee also has a beneficial role to play when it comes to stopping pain from getting worse and increasing in intensity.
Researchers devised an ingenious study where they sought to determine if people who drank coffee before performing a computer office-work task (meant to deliberately provoke pain in the neck, shoulders, forearms and wrists) showed different results in pain development than people who didn’t drink any coffee.
