Lower back pain is estimated to affect 60-80% of the population at some point in their life. While back pain itself is estimated to cost the National Health Service in the UK around £500 million each year.
Anyone suffering with chronic back pain will know that painkillers are usually the go-to solution to provide pain relief. Concerns have also been raised about how safe the use of painkillers like paracetamol are. It’s been well noted that there have been safety concerns regarding the use of paracetamol and other such painkillers. The risk of heart attacks, impaired kidney function and issues with the digestive system have all been associated with the use of painkillers like paracetamol.
Experts have however warned that back pain is fast becoming a ‘sedentary epidemic’ within the UK. This is due to the long hours we have in the workplace and when this is combined with a lack of exercise from sitting down too long each day, it can cause health problems.
Eighty-two per cent of people are believed to spend six or more hours each day sitting in front of a computer screen and this is what can lead to various back and postural problems.
All kinds of recommendations have been suggested for improving the symptoms of back pain and this includes walking daily, sitting up properly at your desk and choosing to drink water instead of tea or coffee as this can help to provide relief for the condition.
Back pain can be alleviated by using massage techniques and this can be a very therapeutic way to find relief. It does this by relieving discomfort and increasing the blood flow, while providing the sore muscles with the nutrition they need. There are specific nutrients that can support pain relief and in particular enable you to find relief for back problems. Magnesium is one essential mineral that many of us are missing from our daily health regime and when included into our lifestyle, it can reduce any feelings of pain within the body, especially the nerves and it can also prevent the activation of nerve cell receptors that can regulate pain.
The Serra Enzyme can help to provide effective pain relief as it dissolves and digests inflammation within the body, and this can make it easier for the body’s natural self-healing mechanisms to take effect. Any issues with the joints themselves may benefit from taking Collagen, the main structural protein in various connective tissues that can also help with restructuring cartilage should any degeneration have taken place.
Along with these nutrients, taking Hemp Seed Oil or Krill Oil can help to support the healing process, boosting the immune system and supporting a positive mental state. Pain can further be reduced by using acupressure techniques which can stimulate the body’s trigger points and activate the body’s healing system. This is a highly effective way of treating a wide range of joint related problems.
