As common as lower back pain is, there is no one cure for it. Each person is different, and so is every type of pain. What works for one individual, may have no effect on someone else. Finding the perfect remedy may often involve the process of trial and error.
Traditional medical approaches will typically focus on anatomical issues, but the pain will often require a multi-faceted approach.
One main remedy that is sometimes overlooked in the traditional medical model is to release your inner endorphins: Endorphins are hormones that are naturally produced by the body. These hormones can be just as strong as the pain medication a person may take. When endorphins are released in your body, they help block pain signals from registering with your brain. They also may help get rid of anxiety, stress, and even depression. All of which can be a result of chronic pain.
Try the following activities to release these feel-good messengers:
- Get enough sleep/rest
- Chiropractic care
- Massage therapy
