Back pain is something that anyone at any age can experience. There are multiple causes for this type of pain, such as a herniated disk from playing sports, a car accident, or simply from aging. No matter what’s causing the pain, it can impact your everyday life and make it uncomfortable to get through the day.
There are many ways to help alleviate your pain, depending on the type of treatment that is best for you. Along with some simple stretches, there are also natural treatment options that can help you get out of pain.
Knee to Chest Stretch
Start with lying on the ground with legs outstretched. Bend the right knee and slowly pull your leg toward your chest. Hold your knee to your chest for 10-30 seconds and slowly release your right leg back onto the ground. Follow this same movement with the left leg.
Lying Knee Twist
Lie on your back with legs extended out. Bend your left knee up and cross it over to the right side of the body. Hold this position for 10-30 seconds and repeat this with the opposite side with the right knee twisting to the left side.
Lie on your stomach with elbows bent underneath you and palms pressed flat to the ground. Lift the upper part of the body off the surface with your arms, all while keeping the back muscles relaxed and the lower part of the body flat on the ground. Do a few repetitions of this.
Other Natural Pain Relief Options
For more severe back pain, there are treatment options that are natural and help the body to heal. Regenerative cell therapy uses mesenchymal cells to repair damaged and injured tissue. These cells are ethically taken from the umbilical cords of cesarean born babies. The mothers are fully consenting, and this causes no harm to the mother or child. These mesenchymal cells are then injected into the damaged tissue.
There is also platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections. PRP uses your own blood that is drawn at your doctor’s visit. This blood is then sorted for the platelets and undergoes a process to concentrate them. This new concentration is then injected into the area that is in need of the most healing.
