Many ways to ease back pain

PERHAPS there is nothing worse in the world than back pain – that is to those back pain sufferers.

Back pain has much to do stress in your life; can also have a lot to do with playing sport; can even have a lot to do with doing nothing at all.

Back Pain, especially in the lower back (lumbar spine), is a problem that most people experience at some time in their lives. But if back pain is severe, you should consult your GP after three months.

But be careful because if a doctor recommends surgery because of back pain, a second opinion should be sought.

Ways to help prevent back pain include – acupuncture – in which according to traditional Chinese medicine, pain results from blocked energy along energy pathways of the body, which are unblocked when acupuncture needles are inserted along these invisible pathways.

Capsaicin Cream is another alternative solution with the active ingredient in chili peppers.

Chronic muscle pain is also linked to a lack of Vitamin D in the body. Vitamin D is found in small bones, fortified milk and cereal.

Musical therapy is also thought to heal back pain and is seen as a low cost natural therapy. Vitamin B12 has also been linked to preventing back pain. Vitamin B12 can also help depression symptoms.

Magnesium helps the muscles get back to a normal function so you should be looking for vitamins that contain magnesium.

Yoga, surprisingly, can help too. Yes it might be painful to actually do some of the techniques but it can have such an impact on helping the bones stretch and become less painful over time.

Bowen therapy can also have an effect too which was developed in Australia by osteopath Tom Bowen.

It is gentle bodywork using the practioners thumbs and fingers to help ease the pain. A general consultation is about 30 to 40 minutes.
