Home Remedy Book
Spine Group Orlando understands that the best healthcare is achieved with an educated healthcare consumer. Especially with back and neck pain, prevention of recurrence is essential to free oneself from ongoing attacks of pain symptoms.
The bad news is that four out of five Americans will have a back pain attack at some point in their lives. The good news is that 80% of back pain is linked to an acute strain of ligaments and tendons. Spine surgery is never appropriate for a back or neck strain. While a back strain can be painful enough to bring you to your knees, the other good news is that the pain related to the symptoms of back strain or neck strain can often be relieved in your own home — provided you know the correct Home Remedies for Back Pain.
Our spine Internet site acts as on-line spine encyclopedia. In addition, as a free community service, Spine Group Orlando mails out a Home Remedy Book for back & neck pain to those who live in Orlando. If you live in this area and would like a copy, complete the form and we’ll mail one to you over the next two weeks.
Within the Home Remedy Book for back pain and neck pain you find several ways you can relieve the symptoms of a back pain attach in your own home. For example, home remedy for back pain #1 is to take an anti-inflammatory like Advil or Nuprin as directed on the bottle. Next, take a paper Dixie cup, fill it with water and put it in your freezer. After it freezes, peel back the paper edge and have another person apply the ice treatment to your low back or neck for 5 minutes at a time. Next, the Home Remedy Book features several customized stretches that can actually relieve pain symptoms — including some disc-related problems.
Remember, drugs only mask symptoms, they do not cure anything. The only way to prevent a recurrence is to change the physiology of the back by using stretches that make the back stronger, more flexible and more resistant to future strain.
The other key part of the Home Remedy manual is to show the two correct ways to lift an object off the ground, because lifting is one of the main causes of back pain. Click HERE to more information on how to lift without hurting your back.
