Backaches are a pain in the neck and anyone who is experiencing or has experienced back pain in their life knows how desperately pain relief is needed. Backaches come in all shapes and sizes so relief really will depend on what type of back pain is being experienced. Having said that, back pain should not be taking lightly especially if it is severe and lasts for more than a few weeks. Pain is our body’s way of telling us something is wrong, so it’s important to not ignore it!
Most common forms of back ache pain relief can be found with over the counter pain relievers such as Tylenol and Advil, prescription pain killers, steroid injections, electric heating pads, and physical therapy. Although these treatments for back pain may offer temporary relief, they only treat the symptoms of the problem and not the underlying cause of the problem. Plus, pain medications come with many negative side effects and can be very dangerous to your health.
We here at the Healthy Back Institute, strive to provide the most up to date information on back pain. The treatments we suggest have been very effective in helping tens of thousands of people get back ache pain relief.
The foundation of our core belief is that everyone has muscle imbalances in the body and barring trauma, these imbalances are ultimately responsible for back pain. Once these muscles balances are corrected, balance can be restored in the body.
Alongside muscle balance therapy, we recommend trying a combination of additional natural treatments that can provide optimal back ache pain relief. Treatments such as Trigger Point Therapy, Inversion Therapy, Ice and heat therapy, anti-inflammatory supplements and natural pain cream are effective ways to help alleviate back pain.
It’s also important to surround yourself with a loving and caring support group, people whom you can count on for help when needed. When you are in pain, it is very challenging to think of anything other than the pain, let alone try to be motivated and positive. However, it’s really important to try to keep a positive attitude as there is a mind body connection element to back pain as well. Our thoughts play a vital role in our health, and the same is true with back pain.
