How to Naturally Alleviate Your Back Pain | Comprehensive Pain Management Center

Back pain can be a hard thing to live with. Medical treatments do not always take away all of your pain. Sometimes there are certain things that you have to do at home to alleviate your back pain.

Helping Your Treatment at Home

There are certain activities you can participate in that will help alleviate your back pain:

  • Find ways to release endorphins. Aerobic exercise, massage therapy, meditation, eating dark chocolate and deep breathing are a few ways for you to release endorphins.
  • Bathe in Epsom salts. This helps ease pain from sore muscles.
  • Get restorative sleep. Back problems can lead to sleeping problems. If you get better sleep, you may reduce the back pain as well. You can get better sleep by sleeping in a different position.
  • Use cold therapy, heat therapy or a combination of the two.
  • Try to keep a healthy weight. This will put less stress on your back.
  • Sit with good posture. Sitting can actually be one of the worst things for you to do for your back, but if you sit properly it may not be as bad.
  • Stretch daily with simple yoga or other stretches. This may help lessen the pain you feel.
  • Use rubs or ointments to help ease the pain.
  • Add natural supplements to your daily diet. Supplements like flax seed oil, calcium, magnesium, vitamin C or zinc may help with your back pain.
  • Work your core. This can help strengthen your muscles, which may help the pain.
  • Exercise your brain. The way you use your brain can change the way it interprets pain.
  • Slow down. Don’t work so hard or push yourself too far. Let the stress go.

These activities, along with others, may help you treat your back pain at home.

Do Not Live With the Pain

You do not have to live with the pain. If treatments from doctors are not working on their own, try adding home remedies to your regimen to alleviate your back pain.
