Back Pain - Methods Of Medication

Apr 15, 2008
If your back is injured then you can expect to have back pain for some time afterward; some medications can provide back pain relief in the short term, although none currently exist that remove pain completely. Pain relief is possible with the medications available but that is all they do and the reason for the pain continues.While there are a host of prescription medications that help with pain relief, many are doing nothing more than masking the symptoms instead of tackling the underlying cause of the pain. Any type of medication should only be used with the supervision of a doctor but especially when it is taken on a regular basis.

The back is under a constant strain throughout our lives and whilst it is very strong, it can be injured without to much difficulty; once spinal injury has occurred it can be a permanent condition. The most common way to injure your back though is by lifting badly, it is usually recognized immediately by a sharp pain at the base of the spine. More recently people are willing to try natural back pain relief treatments to stop their reliance on other types of medication.

Stretching can be effective at reducing back as it relaxes the muscles which are often tense. Reflexology, an ancient type of alternative medical treatment, uses the concept that areas of the body have corresponding regions on the feet that can benefit from massage; some people are now discovering its benefits as a back pain remedy. Often to compensate for our pain, the back muscles over compensate. Reflexology can help provide relief by improving the circulation which in turn relaxes these hard worked muscles.

Acupuncture on the other hand has been used in China since before the birth of Christ and has had considerable success in helping sufferers. It is providing back pain relief even though this is something that has only recently being used in the Western world. If you follow Traditional Chinese medicine then you will know that they believe all people have a unique energy force running through their body called qi or chi. Acupuncture works by releasing the 'chi' or energy flow that every living thing has to improve health. Acupuncture can be used to treat almost all kinds of ailments including pain relief around the spine and studies made in acupuncture have provided results which are quite astounding.

A slower and gentler type of Yoga called Tai Chi, once again from China, is another method of back pain control. Tai Chi focuses on breathing techniques and is a great way to relax your back. Whilst it involves some stretching and breathing exercises it is not too strenuous which means that anyone, young or old can take part in Tai Chi. Natural back pain relief should really start with more frequent exercise; it not only helps to ensure the back is more flexible but can prevent spinal problems as well.
