Below are some of the natural pain-relieving treatments and solutions that you can implement for better and faster results on your back pain.

Keep reading to learn more about natural back pain-relieving solutions.

1. Drink anti-inflammatory beverages

When you intake anti-inflammatory meals regularly, your blood can develop various antioxidant and anti-cancer chemicals.

Over time, these strong chemicals can significantly contribute to reducing or eliminating inflammatory reactions in your body.

Consuming the following nutritious drinks may help relieve back discomfort.

Turmeric milk

Turmeric is an Asian spice that is antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-arthritic.

To prepare this drink, all you have to do is mix 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of warm milk.

If you like a sweeter taste, you can add honey or stevia. Consume this turmeric drink, especially right before bedtime, to let the anti-inflammatory process take place. Consumption of dairy products like almond milk can also be very beneficial.

Juice of Tart Cherries

Cherries are an excellent source of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds.

Cherry juice can help to relieve chronic back pain or muscle discomfort. It is also widely available in supermarkets and frequently contains tart cherry extract.

Consume a glass of cherry juice daily, and you can observe how beneficial it is for your back pain.

Green tea with ginger

Moreover, you can also try blended herbal drinks like ginger-green tea, which contains both green tea and ginger’s pain-relieving benefits.

2. Go to Bed Early and Sleep for a Longer Period of Time

When you sleep well, your back will feel less sore throughout the day.

A healthy sleep cycle can be beneficial for healing and can leave you feeling refreshed and less stressed.

Try the following remedies for better sleep

Vitamin B6 and C: Your body’s natural steroids regulate your metabolism and encourage restful sleep. Vitamin C and B6 supplements are well known to aid the body in producing and regulating natural steroid hormones.
Melatonin: Melatonin is your body’s natural sleep hormone that acts more like a supplement to help you sleep better.
L-theanine: L-theanine is an amino acid found in tea leaves. This may help some people feel more relaxed and sleep better.

3. Avoid Extended Periods of Motionless Position.

It is important to pay attention to your spine, hip joints, and muscles. Avoid stress on these joints by following these simple tips:

Avoid sitting for too long or try working from a standing desk. When you sit in one position for a long period of time, the pressure on your spinal discs increases. Try to get up and walk every hour to lighten the load on your disc.
Rotate activities to minimize fatigue of your muscles and joints. For instance, if you have been standing and working for an extended period of time, consider switching to a new activity that allows you to sit. Once the muscles and joints have relaxed, you can shift back to your regular work.
Examine your posture and make adjustments to your neck and shoulder to avoid putting strain on your spine. Poor posture can contribute to a variety of back disorders and discomforts.

4. Light therapy Using Infrared Light

Infrared light can easily penetrate through the inner layers of your skin and reach your muscles and even to the bones. Something like Platinum’s new handheld light therapy device can help you out.

Many studies have shown that 700 nm to 1,000nm is perfect to heal inflammatory conditions. So, when you take this therapy on a regular basis, you can notice a significant improvement in your back pains.

However, it’s always recommended to seek the advice of an expert before taking any of these light therapy devices, as your doctor knows better which kind of therapy would be suitable for your case.

5. Yoga Can be Very Effective with Your Back Pain

Yoga is an efficient technique to stretch your back and improve the health of your muscles and joints. It can also assist to boost the circulation of healing nutrients and increase your back’s flexibility.

When you first start yoga, proceed slowly and advance only if you feel comfortable and also have no pain. You will soon be able to implement more stretches into your practice.

Early morning is a good time for yoga—it helps to relax your spine and also reduces stiffness and discomfort in your back.

6. Include Meditation in Your Regular Routine

Meditation is an excellent method for increasing attention, releasing endorphins, and reducing stress and anxiety. You may also be able to control how your body feels pain through attentive meditation.

In the morning, find a quiet, dark place and meditate for 5 to 10 minutes. Moreover, you can try meditating before bedtime or during a work break. If you’re not a fan of meditation, try simple breathing exercises—take ten calm, deep breaths in succession.

7. Submerge Yourself in a Warm Pool

The flotation of water allows you to take advantage of exercise while experiencing less pain. Exercising in water also aids in the regulation of nerve and muscle function, hence alleviating pain.

Consider water training programs and hydrotherapy pools if you like warmer pools. Water therapy treatments are frequently performed in water that is between 83 and 88 degrees. The temperature of the hydrotherapy pool is often greater than 90 degrees.

Bottom Line

Back pain issues can occur for many reasons, and they can also be very painful. So, it’s essential that you follow the ways mentioned above and try to improve your lifestyle as this can contribute a lot to the improvement of your back issues.

If you still face issues regarding your back, then do consult with your doctor for better treatment.
