Lower back pain affects about 60-80% of the population at some point in their life. Back pain itself costs the National Health Service in the UK around £500 million each year.
Anyone suffering with chronic back pain will know that painkillers are usually the go-to solution to provide pain relief. However, it is well noted that there are safety concerns regarding the use of paracetamol and other such painkillers. The risk of heart attacks, impaired kidney function and issues with the digestive system have all been associated with their use.
Experts warn that back pain is fast becoming a ‘sedentary epidemic’ within the UK. This is due to the long hours we have in the workplace. When this is combined with a lack of exercise from sitting down too long each day, it can cause health problems.
About eighty-two per cent of people spend six or more hours each day sitting in front of a computer screen. This is what can lead to various back and postural problems.
All kinds of recommendations are suggested for improving the symptoms of back pain. This includes walking daily and sitting up properly at your desk. In addition, choosing to drink water instead of tea or coffee can also help to provide relief for the condition.
Massage techniques can help alleviate back pain. Therefore, this can be a very therapeutic relief. It does this by relieving discomfort and increasing the blood flow. It also provides the sore muscles with space to take in the nutrition they need.
There are specific nutrients that can support pain relief, especially from back problems. Magnesium is one essential mineral that many of us are missing from our daily health regime. When included into our lifestyle, it can reduce any feelings of pain within the body, especially in the nerves. In addition, it can also prevent the activation of nerve cell receptors that can regulate pain.
