Sooner or later, usually after you reach the age of 30, you are bound to experience some sort of back pain, especially if you lack physical activity in your life, or if you have a lot of stress so your muscles are constantly tense. You need to do something about it - either take up some kind of physical activity or find an efficient way to relax in order to decrease the tension in your muscles. If you are not experiencing back pain, you should know that it will happen in the future. I am going to provide you with a couple of tips to help you prevent and deal with the dreaded backache.
Magnesium and Vitamin D
The intake of magnesium is very important for all life functions in general, not just to prevent the back pain; it is also good for your heart, your metabolism, bone structure, etc. If you do not take enough magnesium, you should buy magnesium tablets which are dissolvable in water and drink one glass a day in order to bring it to a normal level.
Vitamin D is also good for your bones and our body has the ability to produce vitamin D when it is exposed to the sun, so you can use some free time to sunbathe every once in a while (there is no need to tell you to be careful with this, since side effects can be truly troublesome (the sun is not as healthy as it used to be).
This is a mind-body technique, designed to increase focus and help you relax, so if you are under a lot of pressure, you should consider meditating every now and then. Listen to some relaxing music, practice steady breathing every day for at least 20 minutes - it may prove to be just what you need in order to get over your back problems.
Massage and Acupuncture
I know I sound like Captain Obvious when I say that a massage is good for your back, but if you haven't had a professional masseuse, then you have no idea what you are missing out on. A good massage will straighten up your back and help you relax completely; you will feel its effects almost immediately. You will probably get addicted to it in no time. If you don't think that a massage is good, then your masseuse is probably not a professional.
On the other hand, if you want to try out something more exotic, acupuncture is the thing for you. It is a form of Chinese traditional medicine which involves a lot of needles being pinned to your back and of course, they are not just randomly placed there. According to Chinese belief, there are certain points in our body which regulate the flow of our life energy and if those points are jammed and your life energy does not have its free flow, so you can experience pain. The needles are placed on the spots which regulate your chi (life energy) flow and after they are removed, your flow is restored so your pain subsides.
So, to conclude, getting rid of back pain with treatment is the best way to go â€“ the pain won't be a bother anymore and, to top of that, the process of getting rid of it is too damn relaxing!
