Relief of chronic back pain can come in many forms—and doesn’t always require a prescription. Medications and conventional medical treatments can sometimes be replaced with some simple remedies.
And let’s face it! Back pain can interrupt your day or interfere with your plans. But back pain isn’t always something you can ignore or wait for it to resolve on its own. So, I resort to natural remedies when I face with such pain…because it happens often.
1. Massage can ease the pain
Gentle massage can help ease sore and tense muscles, and it’s the best way to loosen it up and relieve pain. Go for a massage and the masseuse will definitely know how to deal with your achy back.
Exercises are the best way to relieve a back pain. Just go and buy a medical ball, and roll over it back and forth. This way you will release tension in your muscles, and the pain will be long gone. I found here some interesting ball exercises for back pain relief.
Yoga asanas are another great way of getting rid of a terrible back pain. In my opinion is another way of stretching. But yoga has the meditation part that will help you to get rid of stress (another major factor for back pain). So go on Youtube and search for some yoga asanas suitable for back pain.
4. Epsom salt
Take a lot of Epsom salt baths because you will ease muscle soreness and this way the pain will be gone. It’s enough to take a 20 minute bath to relieve the pain. Add 500 gr of Epsom to a filled bathtub, and then soak your aching body in it.
5. Posture control
Yes, wrong posture will lead to severe back pains. So, control your posture both standing and sitting, not to face with such pain. If you can’t control that, just buy a back elastic band support to correct your posture.
Sleeping in a wrong posture may lead to various pains, and one of them is back pain. I was wondering how can you correct your posture when sleeping (for me it’s impossible because I sleep like pretzel)? It helped me, instead, an ergonomic pillow. You can find on e-bay!
Swimming will work almost all your muscles and it’s the best exercise you can take. It has so many benefits that it makes you stand in the pool all day long. Relieves stress, tension, muscles soreness, and it will definitely correct your body posture and back pain will be just a bad dream.
