How to Live Without Back Pain

Back pain is a problem that is affecting many people around the world. There was a time when this was only affecting older individuals or athletes. Nowadays, even the youth is suffering from back problems, whether it is related to the back muscles, or the spinal column itself. The first solution to such a problem is neither surgery (such as a spinal fusion) nor pain medication, even if you suffer from chronic back pain.

There are a few treatments and pain management methods you can apply at home and get pain relief without having to use invasive methods and medications, or even NSAIDs.

Here are some alternatives you can try instead:

Maintain Proper Posture

Back pain might go away but then, when you least expect it, it comes back again. Why could that be? Most likely it is because you are doing something that is facilitating the return of your back pain.

To prevent it and live pain-free, it is imperative that you maintain your posture while sitting, standing, laying down, and also while doing other activities. Below you can find some tips to help you maintain proper posture:

  • When you are sitting for a long time, such as on your office desk, keep your feet on an elevated position.
  • Be mindful of your posture and keep your back straight when you are sitting or standing.
  • When walking, keep your back straight and shoulder back, and do not slouch as it increases pressure on the lower back.
  • Do not sleep in uncomfortable positions such as on your work chair or living room couch.
  • When laying down to sleep, ensure your spine has proper support and that it is aligned correctly. You can place a pillow in-between your knees to help align your spine in a more neutral position, if you tend to sleep on your side.

Use a Heated Pad

One of the best home remedies for back pain is a heated pad/hot fomentation. You can make one at home by taking a washcloth or towel and soaking it in hot water. Squeeze out the excess water and place the heat pad or cloth on your back.

If you do not want to do all this, you can buy a hot water bottle from the market. Electric heated pads are widely available online. You do not have to fill them with hot water. Instead, you can plug them into a socket and the water is heated electrically.

Stretching Exercises

A lot of people are under the wrong impression that any kind of activity will make their back pain worse. It is quite the opposite actually. If you have back pain and you do not move the affected region, the pain is going to get worse. To live pain-free, you should do stretching exercises for your lower back. If the lower back pain has traveled to your legs and buttocks, you can do stretching exercises for these regions too.

Consume Anti-Inflammatory Foods

If you are constantly affected by back pain, you should avoid eating foods that cause inflammation in the body. Most of the time, inflammatory markers either initiate the pain or worsen it. Incorporate Omega 3 fatty acids in your diet as they are anti-inflammatory. If you are reducing or inhibiting the stimulus of pain, there will be no instance of pain.

Normally, you can use any of these home remedies to live pain-free. However, if the pain is consistent and it just refuses to go away even after weeks of home remedies, you should consider using the Backrack Spinal Decompression Device, as your vertebrae may be compressed.

Backrack Spinal Decompression Therapy

The Backrack is an orthopaedic device that uses patented technology to safely and effectively decompresses your spine, providing long-term relief and prevention from back and neck pain caused by spinal compression and musculoskeletal disorders. On top of relieving pain, it helps with posture correction and helps improve spinal range of motion. It is 100% natural, comfortable, and free of side-effects. Thousands of people have already seen its benefits, so why not be one of them?

Why Spinal Decompression

Compression of the spine is often an overlooked cause of spine health problems. What compression does is that it causes your vertebrae to be pushed down, and in turn press down on other structures such as discs and nerve roots. The latter especially can be affected by spinal compression as any pressure that is applied on them can trigger a pain sensation. If a nerve is permanently pinched, it will cause a continuous pain sensation.

As such, to get rid of the pain, the core issue – compression has to be dealt with. This is exactly what the Backrack excels at.

Thorough a specific exercises programme, you can decompress all areas of the spine and target issues such as neck pain, thoracic pain and low back pain. The device can help even with chronic pain cases.
