Suffering from continuous back pain can be frustrating and severely affect the quality of life. A person can take painkillers to combat the condition, but it’s not a sustainable option, as popping numerous pills daily adds to the discomfort. Alternate options must be explored to create ease for the individuals.

People have started using essential oils as an alternative treatment method. Let’s look at the essential oils the affected individual can use to treat back pain:

Peppermint oil:

Peppermint oil is extracted from the leaves of peppermint leaves. The plant contains components that act as an analgesic and work to reduce inflammation and pain. Menthol is considered the primary component involved in relieving pain. It’s necessary to remember that direct application of peppermint oil can cause a burning sensation. Therefore, always dilute it with carrier oils.

Lavender oil:

Lavender oil is known to relieve stress and promotes a healthy mind. However, the lesser-known fact about lavender oil is that it contains analgesic properties. It has shown positive results for muscle pain. Therefore, the effect can also be experienced in back muscles.

Eucalyptus oil:

People can use products with components responsible for the analgesic effect to reduce back pain. Likewise, Eucalyptus oil is full of constituents that impart analgesic activity. Hence, the oil is perfect for alleviating muscle pain and inflammation.

Frankincense oil:

Several studies have examined the effect of frankincense oil on back pain. The constituents of the essential oil of Frankincense have anti-inflammatory properties that enhance circulation and reduce inflammation. Consequently, back pain is alleviated to an extent.

How To Use Essential Oils For Back Pain?

The suffering individual can either get a massage on the affected area, inhale them through a diffuser or take an essential-oil infused bath. It depends upon what the person finds comfortable.

Conclusion:

Essential oils cannot replace proper medical care. They are just alternatives that can be used to relieve the pain in situations. Try chiropractic care if nothing seems to work for you. Advanced Chiro can be useful in such cases. Seek help and notice the difference.

For something that has existed for centuries as a part of a traditional treatment method around the globe, it’s not as popular as it should be. Chiropractic methods were established in the 18th Century and used to eliminate musculoskeletal-related ailments. But one thing that still bothers many people is, why choose chiropractic? Naturally, people do not trust anyone’s opinion until it’s presented with published facts and testimonials. Let’s discuss the countless benefits of chiropractic and evaluate why it should be chosen above all other treatment methods.

Chiropractic for Pain and Aches:

The most common treatment plan for pain is the administration of analgesics. But for how long? Are pills providing a permanent cure? Continuous administration of pain killer tablets/capsules is not patient compliant, a more permanent and effective treatment plan should be considered. The point of concern is that some of the pain killers used for pain management can be addictive in the long term. If the horizons are expanded, chiropractic methods are one of the most beneficial and patient-friendly methods.

The majority of the patients receiving chiropractic care have reported seeing improvement in chronic lower back pain after a few sessions of a particular chiropractic method, i.e., spinal manipulation. Some may be concerned with the safety of the spinal manipulation procedure; however, it is completely safe and involves the movement of the spinal cord by applying force between any two vertebrae of the spine.

Chiropractic For Diseases Related To Nerve Suppression:

Various diseases like arthritis, dislocation of joints and herniated discs, etc., can lead to nerve suppression which initiates extreme pain in the suffering individual. Moreover, pregnant women and obese individuals are at a higher risk of nerve suppression, and the symptoms include different pain sensations such as burning, tingling, or numbness. The conventional options for the treatment of nerve suppression are steroids and NSAIDs for pain management. In rare cases, the doctor may prescribe surgery or physiotherapy.

Because chiropractic is a non-invasive method, people who know, prefer it over other conventional methods. The chiropractor will carefully re-align the spinal cord to relieve pressure and free any of the compressed nerves. Full recovery should not be expected immediately as it may take more than 2 sessions to see improvement. It’s cost-effective, beneficial, and non-invasive, making it a perfect choice. Try for yourself and see the life-changing results as it removes the existing condition and can also help with the elimination of relapse of the disease.

Within recent years, the medical community has come to a shocking conclusion about the nature of pain. It used to be believed that pain was only a received sensation, e.g. the prick of a needle hurts due to the actual puncture of the skin. Today, it is understood that pain is actually a sensation given by the mind and body to prevent further damage from occurring. When a needle is inserted, it sends signals to the brain which translates those signals into what we know as pain, a message to our conscious to stop whatever it is we are doing.

This knowledge plays an immense role in how doctors go about remedying that pain. For instance, chiropractors understand that this pain response as well as other muscular responses, while designed to protect the body, can actually sometimes limit its healing process. For this reason the pain and muscular damage must be relieved to aid in proper healing. A lot of chronic pain is the result of chronic inflammation, and the evidence is quite strong that diet can contribute to increased systemic inflammation. But your diet is also one of the best ways to reduce it.
