Back pain can have a massive impact on lives and most people will suffer from back pain at least once in their lives, with lower back pain being the most common type of pain. The small of the back, known as the lumbar region, undergoes considerable stress when a person lifts or twists and can become sprained easily. Lower back pain, known as lumbago, makes movement painful and often sufferers are unable to work during these episodes.
What causes lower back pain?
Muscle strain – Straining a muscle in the back is a very common cause of lower back pain. This type of injury can occur as a result of the overuse of muscles and ligaments, whether this happens through work or sport. This type of injury also results from lifting or twisting awkwardly whilst lifting heavy objects. People often resort to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory creams to relieve pain. A more natural approach, which works rapidly, is the use of topical magnesium oil products such as Pure Magnesium Oil Spray. Magnesium Oil when applied directly to the skin quickly floods and bathes cells of the muscles and nerves helping to relax them, thus alleviating pain rapidly, often within a few minutes of application.
Osteoarthritis – Recurrent lower back pain may be associated with the degeneration of the discs between joint tissues due to wear and tear. The result is more pressure on the spine leading to inflammation and lower back pain. Often non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs are prescribed which are not without side effects that commonly cause gastrointestinal distress. A natural option would be to use Superior Joints which contains Natural Eggshell Membrane (NEM), a compound that has been shown to help alleviate pain rapidly without any side effects.
Slipped Disc – Pressure on the lower vertebrae can rupture or push one of the cushioning discs in the region. The result is that the cartilage is pushed towards the spinal cord nerves pressing against them causing intense pain.
Other reasons for lower back pain include fractures, fragility of the bones such as those associated with osteoporosis and spinal deformities. Read More…
