All it takes is one wrong move and – snap – out goes your back. The pain can shoot down your leg and send you straight to bed. Back pain is one of the most common reasons Americans seek medical help, according to the Centers for Disease Control. If you’re one of the 50 million Americans suffering from back pain at any one time, you know how debilitating it can be.
Most often, your lower back or lumbar spine is at the root of your pain. Composed of five tiny vertebrae, the lumbar spine and surrounding muscles, ligaments and spinal discs bear the weight and movements of your body. In addition, chronic inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis and osteoporosis can increase your risk of injury. More often, common movements such as those involving gardening, shoveling, changing the sheets, and exercise can be the source of stiff joints and back pain, too.
Taking steps to relieve and prevent common back pain and manage inflammation can go a long way. The good news is that you have options for natural ways to help relieve joint pain and stiffness, as well as natural remedies. Read on to learn more.
Back Pain Relief Tips
The last thing you want to do when your back hurts is to ignore it. That may lead to additional injury and the need for medical intervention. Instead, try these tips:
Ice and Heat It. Cold compresses reduce inflammation and numb the pain. Heat dilates blood vessels and increases blood flow to the back to reduce muscle spasms.
Move It. Incorporate gentle movement such as walking for 10-15 minutes several times a day. Equally helpful, engage in easy water movements like floating, walking or gentle kicking with a floating device.
Exercise It. Try stretching, but easy does it.
Posture: Be mindful of your posture throughout the day. Avoid slouching; make it a point to stand up straight.
Reduce Inflammation Naturally: One of the best ways ease back pain is to reduce inflammation. Taking a highly absorbable herbal formula goes a long way to supporting your healthy inflammation response.
If your back pain doesn’t go away after a few days, or is the result of an injury, or wakes you up at night, consider visiting a doctor.
Super Bioavailable Curcumin
Found in turmeric root (Curcuma longa), curcumin is an effective antioxidant that supports joint and mobility health. It supports a healthy inflammation response in the whole body, including the back. However, your body resists absorbing curcumin because it’s fat-soluble. Without a way to increase its bioavailability, curcumin’s many benefits remain bound inside this fat-soluble phytonutrient.
Solgar has developed technology to transform this poorly-absorbed fat-soluble nutrient into a fast-absorbing, water-soluble Full Spectrum Curcumin. All without the addition of traditional piperine or liposomal enhancers.
How do they do it? Solgar starts with a 95% curcumin extract from standardized, pure, concentrated turmeric root. Then they surround and encapsulate the standardized curcumin with tiny water-loving spheres called micelles. Micelles transform the usually dense curcumin powder into a clear liquid that your body can readily absorb. The faster your body absorbs curcumin, the quicker the results. Amazingly, just one 40 mg soft gel of Solgar Curcumin equals nearly 75 (100 mg) capsules of standardized curcumin extract. What’s more, it stays in your body for up to 24 hours.
Non-GMO, and free of gluten, wheat, and dairy. No artificial flavors, sweeteners, preservatives, or colors. Available in 30, 60, or 90 softgel sizes.
Fast Joint Comfort
Solgar offers two additional approaches to joint comfort and cellular power: No. 7 and Tart Cherry.
No. 7 one-a-day capsules contain several key ingredients that work in concert to help support joint mobility, comfort and a healthy inflammation response. Specifically, get joint relief, greater flexibility, and help with stiffness.
- Non-acidic Ester-C® protects collagen from harmful free radicals.
- 5-Loxin® Advanced, derived from Boswellia, helps reduce harmful enzymes from breaking down protective joint tissue.
- Turmeric root supports tissue health.
- Undenatured Type II Collagen (UC-II®) is a protein that supports a healthy inflammation response and helps relieve stiff joints. Additionally, UC-II helps counteract autoimmune responses leading to joint pain and degeneration.
The joint comfort supplement offers fast improvement in just seven days. See if you don’t have greater joint mobility and flexibility after just 7 days.
Tart Cherry contains important phytonutrients such as anthocyanins, quercetin and chlorogenic acid. These antioxidants fight free radicals that cause oxidative damage to our cells. As a result, adding Tart Cherry to your routine gives you greater energy and power.
