What can you add to your daily routine? Below are 7 natural pain remedies worth considering.
1. Gentle Movement Activities
Yoga, Pilates and Tai Chi are all useful for promoting flexibility and building core muscle strength. These exercises can be beneficial if you suffer from back pain. As always, consult with your doctor to determine what’s best for you.
2. Aquatic Therapy
Water therapy conducted in a pool can be a gentle way to alleviate lower back pain. The water acts like a compression bandage for the entire body and can improve circulation, relax muscles, add a natural resistance and even massage muscles as you move. This is especially useful for people who are sedentary or have limited range of motion.
Meditation can be a powerful pain reliever. It teaches patients how to react to pain and breath correctly to reduce pain. It also gives patients a way to feel good and regain control of their lives.
Acupuncture can be another useful approach. It is used to promote and restore the balance of energy which flows throughout the body.
Massage therapy can provide substantial healing and pain relief for people suffering from low back pain caused by muscle tension and strain. The key is in targeting the correct muscle groups. It is also important to be seen by someone who is properly certified and experienced. Ask about the massage therapy HealthQuest provides.
7. Strength Training
Strength training exercises can benefit back and core muscles. This is essential for both relieving pain and preventing injury. Patients with back pain should always talk with their doctor before implementing a new exercise plan.
8. Anti-Inflammatory Diet
An easy way to improve overall joint and muscular health, lower inflammation, and prevent back pain is to consume a healthy diet. Focus on:
- High-fiber foods
- Omega-3 fats
- Lean Protein
