Back Pain

According to an article in the April 2012 issue of Good Housekeeping, if the back pain won't quit, consider an alternative therapy.  Recent studies from the Group Health Research Institute in Seattle found that both Swedish massage and yoga significantly relieved chronic back pain.  After 10 treatments, of the 401 patients in the massage study, over 35% reported their pain was "gone"or "much better," compared with only 4% of those who continued with usual care.  Want a hand-off fix?  In another study, 12 yoga classes also brought relief, with 60% of patients reporting significant improvement.  Seek out a skilled practitioner or instructor, says senior investigator Daniel Cherkin, Ph.D.  For massage, try amtamassage.org.  With yoga, find a teacher who will make adjustments to help prevent injuries.

Apply ice to your back when it is feeling sore. Using ice on your pain is a simple and effective way to get immediate relief for any back pain. Ice will quickly reduce swelling to the entire area, which will automatically reduce pain sensations. Avoid putting ice directly on skin. Chiropractors Denver CO
