Tired of feeling like you're holding your family back during the summer months?
Sick of taking painkillers that never resolve the issue?
Chronic back pain can often become more severe during the summer. Frequent trips and outdoor activities all create added stress on the body.
This blog contains the best natural remedies to combat your back pain because this year you deserve to make the most of your summer!
Back Pain and Its Impact on Summer Activities
Summertime back pain can be a major hindrance, making it a challenge to get involved in outdoor activities.
Especially those who experience recurring or chronic pain!
Mild to moderate exercise, including walking, swimming, or biking can become painful and draining. Meaning missed opportunities to enjoy the summer and go on adventures with those closest to us.
Feeling helpless and lost?
If you ever wish to return to a life free of anxiety and discomfort, it is important that you recognize your limitations and pinpoint the source of your problems.
That's why we have put together a list of the best natural remedies for managing your pain this season!
1 - Drink Plenty of Water
Although it may seem simple, a lack of water is one of the summer's most common triggers for chronic pain.
If you want to avoid weariness and control your body temperature, staying hydrated is the best way to do so!
Avoid sugary drinks and alcoholic beverages. These drinks actually dehydrate the body, so be sure to drink lots of water throughout the day!
2 - Heat and Cold Therapy
Using ice or a hot compress for your back can help reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, providing relief from the pain.
Cold therapy, such as ice packs, helps to constrict blood vessels, reducing swelling and numbing the affected area.
Heat therapy, like hot compresses or heating pads, works by dilating blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the area, and relaxing tense muscles.
For best results, repeat this cycle several times during the day to help alleviate symptoms and promote healing.
3 - Herbal Supplements
Many herbs have anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in your back.
Turmeric, ginger, boswellia, or devil’s claw are all common natural ingredients, with incredible healing properties.
You can take them in supplement form or make your own tea with fresh herbs and honey for a tasty remedy.
4 - Stay Active
Our instincts teach us to avoid anything that hurts. This is actually one of the worst tactics!
Regular exercise helps strengthen your core muscles for better posture and minimize stiffness in your muscles and joints.
Pilates is a fantastic alternative because it promotes body strengthening and stretching. As well as being low-impact, preventing the acceleration of your back pain.
