So many people around the globe suffer from acute back pain, especially lower back pain. It is the most common and well-known human experience, with an average of 10 million cases in India every year. As many people believe most of the back pain is self-diagnosable, these are the following things you can do to relieve yourself from such suffering.

Do physical exercise

Doing physical exercise for a standard time of 25-30 mins will not just heal your back but also make you more active, strong, and flexible. As quoted by the famous spine specialist E. Kano Mayer, MD- “Motion is Lotion,” physical movement is the best solution for back pain.

It is always better to consult physicians if you are unable to tolerate the pain. Doctors will suggest some light exercises for the ache, depending on the intensity and location of your back pain. If you can’t stand straight or walk, the condition can worsen without the doctor’s advice.  

Use hot and cold packs

Hot and cold ice packs, both can be used to treat backaches. However, one should consider applying the ice pack first for the first two to three days and then shift to hot water baths, heating pads, etc.

Never apply the source of heat directly to your skin. Sleeping with a heat pack may look soothing at first, but as soon as the pack slips away, your skin can get burnt.

Maintain a healthy diet

As said by Ralph Waldo Emerson, the first wealth is health. Maintaining a nutrient-rich diet can make your bones stronger and also help you balance your weight. Excessive increase in weight can also add to your pain as it puts more pressure on your back.

If these conventional methods do not work, you can always switch to complementary medicine techniques.  

Try acupuncture

As suggested by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, the old age Chinese practice of acupuncture may, at times, prove beneficial for treating back pain. It is based on the idea of the flow of energy in your body. It may look a little scary at first as it involves inserting needles in the body but can prove to be a successful therapy later.

Osteopathic manipulative therapy

These are hands-on techniques performed by Osteopathic physicians to treat as well as prevent injury. They utilize their hands to rub and stimulate the area around the spine.

Other advanced techniques, as suggested by specialists, are:

Nerve blocks injection

Also known as pain receptor block injection can be used for a temporary purpose for instant relief.

Spinal cord stimulation

It is basically an implanted device that sends gentle electrical impulses to the spinal cord to divert the pain signals from reaching the brain.  

Radiofrequency ablation

Its basic principle is to use heat to block or reduce the transmission of painful nerve signals. According to statistics, it is 70-80 percent effective in people who have successful nerve blocks, and pain can be relieved from 9 months to approximately two years.

HondroCream

You may have already tried many gels and oils to get rid of the pain, but HondroCream in the UK is prepared by a team of leading experts in the area of neurology and neuropathology. It is specifically designed to get rid of pain and inflammation in the joints to give you an instant soothing effect. Plus, it has no side effects as it is created entirely by natural ingredients.

How to use it?

It should be applied smoothly on cleansed and dry skin for an hour. On average, it should be applied 2-3 times in a day for effective results.

Now since we are nearing the end of this think piece, let me close this with a number: on an average 70 percent of all people suffer from chronic back pains, and there are still many people who don’t know how to cure it. Spreading this message with all the elderly people you know can surely prove to be very beneficial.
