Many treatment options for back pain require medications that often come with nasty side effects. But what if there was a way to get relief from back pain without having to take pills?

CAUSES OF BACK PAIN
Stress plays a major role in back pain and is the most common cause of this ailment. While the body was designed to handle certain amounts of stress, over time the ability to handle it diminishes. A long day at the office or a hard day in the factory can cause several different types of stress. When the body reaches its limit that stress can turn into pain. This pain can become chronic and persistent if nothing is done about it.
There are three main types of stress that can cause your back to ache. The first type is stress is known as chemical stress. Chemical stress occurs when you inhale or ingest toxins from the environment. There are many common toxins that can cause chemical stress including smog, tobacco smoke, preservatives, and alcohol. Emotional stress is another key factor in back pain. Emotional stress is often caused by worry and anxiety which most of us face on a daily bases. Last but not least we have physical stress. This type of stress is brought on by some type of trauma. A fall at work or a car accident can cause physical stress which can be long-lasting.
While stress is one of the main causes of back pain, there are other things that can make your back hurt. Medical conditions such as a bulging disc, spinal degeneration, osteoporosis, and sciatica can all contribute to back pain. For example, osteoporosis can cause your bones to lose density. When bones in the back become weak they can fracture causing extreme pain. Spinal degeneration, on the other hand, causes the space within the spinal bones to narrow resulting in chronic pain. These are all common medical conditions that are known to cause severe back pain.
GET TO THE ROOT OF YOUR Back Pain
In the back, there are more than 50 nerves which are designed to let the body know damage is occurring. These nerves send out signals to the brain indicating that something is not right. When this happens you experience back pain. Traditional medicine treats the pain directly but it does not address the real problem. The root of the pain is often ignored and pain medications are all too often prescribe without finding the underlying cause. When these medications ware off the pain returns and more pills are needed. This can cause addiction which in itself is a serious problem. Surgery is another option that many people are given. While some procedures can help others only make the problem worse. For those that are given surgical options, they often find themselves having to return to the operating room for additional surgeries. This ends up becoming a vicious cycle with no clear end game.
