Natural Remedies To Back Pain

Do you feel constant pain in your back area? If you’ve consulted your physician and you’re certain that it’s not caused by a major ailment like a herniated disk or tumor, check out these everyday activities you can incorporate in your lifestyle to lessen the ache.

1. Meditation/Yoga. Or basically any stress relieving activity. A lot of back aches are said to be caused by mental and emotional stress which manifests in your physical body, particularly the back area. So learn some Tai Chi or have regular stress relief activities.

2. Swimming/Aquatic Therapy. Swimming and staying in the water can help back pain by opening up stiff and sore muscles. In addition, water temperature and movement can soothe and relax the muscles.

3. Massage. A massage by a trained masseuse or therapist can make your life a lot easier by increasing your circulation and relieving muscle tension, spasms, stiffness and pain. So make sure you schedule a massage at least once a week with your favorite masseuse.

  1. Interesting Post!

    Well, it seems that most chiropractic patients started wearing sacroiliac belts (aka SI belt) around their pelvis as it is recommended by most chiropractors across America. By providing the correct balance of resistance and resilience, the sacroiliac belt re-establishes the joint’s normal motion, relieving stress and instability at these weight bearing structures.

    There are many good SI Belts out there, but as far as quality, comfort, and prices are considered – Serola Sacroiliac Belt seems to be the best in the market. I’d say it was well worth my $38 investment when I was in severe back pain, which was caused by a sports injury.

    Visit their website for more info: http://serolabelt.com/new-serola-sacroiliac-belt.aspx.

    Hope this info is helpful to others. Good Luck!

  2. Stress is definitely a big cause of back pain, and these suggestions for releasing tension are good.

    Sitting for hours in front of a computer in a bad posture can also cause or exacerbate back pain. I’ve spent the last few years developing software to help – no fancy pseudo-science, just a simple (100% drug free!) tool to help computer users help themselves by reminding them about their posture when they’re sitting badly.

    There’s a free 30-day trial on my website, feedback greatly appreciated.

  3. After years of chronic illness, pain and fatigue, yoga has really been my personal path to healing. In addition to the chronic fatigue and constant pain, I had sciatica, SI problems, herniated discs – you name it. I had no idea what my first yoga class would lead to!
    I have studied yoga for over 20 years, teaching and becoming a yoga therapist along the way. I was compelled to make this healing process available to the public, and the result is The Essential Low Back Program. I have been working on this project for the last 8 years with The National Institute of Health who funded a study looking at yoga therapy for the treatment of lower back pain. We collaborated with the Group Health Center for Health Studies, and the results were so exciting that the Annals of Internal Medicine picked it up. It is a simple and affordable at home practice, and I am very excited to make it available to everyone. (Please visit http://www.yogabackcare.com to learn more.)
