These are some easy ways that don’t involve exercise to help with your severe back pain, with a little help from www.discovermagazine.com, we are here with some of the best ways through which we can treat back pain.
Aaah tried and true. Heat. We use it in the office every day. While it only really heats the outer layer of skin and fat, it is quite soothing, can allow your brain and breathing to relax, and even relieve pain. A nice home remedy that has been used for centuries. Here is the #1 best seller on Amazon:
Cold Pack If the heat doesn’t work, try ice. It’s the next one in our arsenal as physical therapists to break the pain cycle and is easily accessible at home. Try a big one that will cover a large area of your back. Here is the #1 seller on Amazon as well, and is the same brand we use in the office:
Acupressure Hey, I have to admit this is a new one for me. But Amazon’s search engine is intelligent, and people don’t lie. This one is worth trying, I believe. You lie there like lox and let the acupressure points do their work on you. This may be good in the early stages when, as the title above says, the pain is severe. Or maybe it’s just those several hundred prickly points that hurt more than the back pain, so you forget about your back. Who knows! Worth a try:
Healing Back Pain (book) by John Sarno, MD While you are lying on your heat/ice/acupressure mat, check out this best seller from orthopedist Dr. John Sarno. He has cured many through the power of their minds. It’s a quick read and will be a real eye-opener for most. He has helped thousands through his simple book and seminars in New York. I personally know of a few people that have made miraculous recoveries from his method. Check it out on Amazon here:
Back Brace (DO NOT CLICK HERE!) According to several research studies, back braces do nothing at all to help with back pain. Do not believe the hype or the marketing ploys on the box of the brace/corset/support. Pure fabrication. Don’t waste your time with a back brace, please!
I HOPE you’re not clicking this… Has anybody tried any of the above methods to relieve pain? Did it work?
