Natural Treatments at home for Lower Back Pain Relief

Global Statistics of people suffering back pain

When i was suffering from low back pain at the age of 28 then i was a little bit worried and bothered thinking why i was affected with such a severe pain in the lower back at so young age. But when i started doing research then i am surprised to know that i am not alone. According to one of the research report (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17445733) It is estimated that 15% to 20% of adults have back pain during a single year and 50% to 80% experience at least one episode of back pain during a lifetime.

Lower Back Pain causes more disability globally than any other condition, according to two research reports published by BMJ Journals on January 30 and March 24 in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases. As the world population continues to age, an urgent need exists for research to find out why and how LBP might be prevented or better managed, researchers write.

So finally, after going through various research papers and analysis data i decided to write and spread awareness of back pain so that people can start taking care of their health and back when the pain is acute and in the primary stage.

Some people’s back pain get quickly cured by doing regular stretches and some take more time. Even some get relief from lower back pain relief treatments like chiropractic care, physiotherapy.

I was overweight and i was having a slight belly so this made my pain lower back pain worse so for me the first step of treatment was to reduce weight. So I started following appropriate food and daily walk and believe me i started seeing the results after 20 days. My experience says daily either morning walk or evening walk in nature connects self and nature responds in different ways. You try it and you will never be disappointed.

So the conclusion is the treatment of back pain or lower back pain could not be same for all. The treatment which provides results for some may not provide for other so there is no need to get disappointment if your back pain doesn’t respond to any one particular type of treatment.
