I think the best thing you can do for Back Pain is to go Bike Riding. It has the most magical natural self healing capabilities. I am not sure what is, but Biking does magic for Back pain. At least it does with me over anything else. But make sure the Temperature is Warm and not too cold which will make muscles to tense up.
Acupuncture can Help your Back pain.
The entire process of acupuncture is based on the theory that we have a life force that is commonly known as qi. This life force can be manipulated by interrupting or redirected through the insertion of tiny needles into specific areas of the body. Although medical science is unable to really identify how this process works, far too many people have been helped by it for it to be a coincidence. Some people theorize that acupuncture helps to release chemicals into the system that may act as painkillers, but it is really unknown why it works.
The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. “Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain,” Wilmarth says.
Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees.
Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. This is specially IMPORTANT.
Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back.
And ya, Eat less as bumpercrop said, to reduce pressure on stomach walls.
Hi Sarah, I have heard of Tai Chi as being a great remedy for Back pain.
Question though is how do I find a good reliable place for doing Tai Chi?
Or can one do Tai Chi on ones own using like a YouTube video?
Yes, sarah. Acupuncture is absolutely can be great remedy for most Back Pain. Since after all Acupuncture targets the nerve systems and in case of most Back Pain, not all, but most, it is the nerves that have been pinched or are under pressure.
I used to have a very bad back pain.
I found out that loosing the Michelin Tire around my tummy was the answer for me.
So ironically the answer to your back pain relief is in your Hands & Mouth :)
But most people are lazy and want the easy answer which means they end up taking pills :(
I have had back disc issues for a few years now. I have had to back shots which helped for a few years. About 2 years ago my back took to a place of server pain. Could not walk nor crawl without pain. The doctor gave me a shot and some pills which helped. I was given some exercises to do. Didn't think it would help so I tried it and it does help. Want get rid of all the pain but it does help.
