Lower Back Pain

Lower Back Pain

There was a time when back ache was characterized by old age. When a person cannot stand discomfort in the back, it is important to learn how to relieve back pain. Here are some natural things a person can do to get rid of back pain.

Use Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, yoga and tai chi can do wonders for your back. They put your mind at rest and gradually help in reducing back pain.

Do Yoga

Movement and stretching are keys to back pain relief. The key is not to take it too far. Start with slow controlled movements and listen to your body. Stop whenever a pose hurts you or puts too much pressure on your back.

Eat Vitamin K Foods

While eating vitamin K foods like broccoli might not alleviate back pain once it is already present, Health indicates this nutrient is essential to warding off back pain from the start. Vitamin K is important for bone density and strength, and the stronger bones are throughout the body, the less likely an individual is to suffer a back injury.

Be Well Hydrated

Back pain is one of the signs that your body is begging for more water. Some people suffer from chronic back pain only to be surprised that the cure is to simply be well-hydrated.

Strengthen Your Abs

The muscles that make up your core wrap around the back and help to stabilize the body, particularly the back. When your abdominal muscles are stronger, you will be able to do things without straining your back too much.
