Many Ways to Relieve Back Pain

Finding ways to relieve back pain is sought out by many people. Following are some ideas I have come across searching the internet. Hopefully some of these will help you to alleviate your back pain. Many have worked for me.

To begin with what you eat and drink is important. Be sure to drink 8 to 10 glasses of filtered water every day. Stay away from carbonated drinks especially the ones with caffeine because they deplete your body of any good water you may drink. Eat foods that contain magnesium, calcium and vitamin B-12. Don’t overeat because that just puts more stress on your back.

If you sit for a long time on your job working on the computer be sure to stand up as often as you can and move around a little. You may even try doing some stretches that may relieve the back pain from muscle tension that has built up while sitting in the same position for too long. If you work from home get an exercise ball that you can roll your back on every so often to loosen the back and neck muscles.

For a daily routine to help relieve back pain try doing yoga type exercises that have gentle stretching to them. These kind of exercises will also help your posture to improve. Even if you can only do 15 minutes a day or every other day will help your back pain. You should also start walking more which will help strengthen your back and leg muscles.

You may also have a deficiency of Vitamin D. This has been shown to be a cause of muscle pain. Sources to get Vitamin D are, cod liver oil, salmon, mackerel, tuna, sardines, eggs, liver beef, cheese and vitamin D-fortified milk. Sun rays also contain Vitamin D.

So if you want to relieve your back pain and have a better life then get up off the couch and go take a long walk out in the sunshine. You’ll feel better for having done that.
