Suffering from chronic back pain? Well, I know your pain.
I’m going on my 5th month of dealing with a spinal compression fracture, and none of it has been fun so far.
Luckily, I have a few tips to share that I am sure will be able to help you out! I’ve learned a lot in these 5 months of recovering from this back injury, and hopefully these tips work as well for you as they have for me!
Want some quality advice on how to deal with back pain? Keep reading below!
Improve Your Lower Body Mobility, and Stay Active!
After I learned about the issue plaguing my back, my first step was to improve my mobility and flexibility in my lower body and trunk.
Practicing yoga daily has been a tremendous help for me, but you must be gentle with your stretching. Especially when you first begin to loosen up your joints, ligaments and muscles, gentle stretching is paramount.
Along with this, another step that I made was to re-tool my ability to squat properly. The squat is a very basic human movement, but not many people can perform it properly.
Working on squat form by practicing goblet squats, and body squats, was great for improving how my back felt.
Treat Yourself with CBD Oil and Topical CBD Products to Reduce Chronic Pain
When people are looking to manage any type of pain in their body, I think its safe to say that most people jump to NSAIDs such as Tylenol, Aleve, and Ibuprofen first.
Well, did you know that there is a holistic replacement for these dangerous medicines that can work even better?
CBD stands for cannabidiol, and it is a non-psychoactive cannabinoid found in the hemp plant. It is legal throughout all 50 states, and as of January 1st, 2018, it has become legal as per the World Anti-Doping Agency banned substance list (for you athletes out there).
I started using these products soon after my injury, and they made a world of difference!
CBD oil and other CBD products work to naturally reduce inflammation, and have an enormous amount of other benefits for the human body as well.
You can apply topical CBD directly on to your back, or you can take it orally.
