Back Pain Home Remedies & Natural Remedies
Back Stretches Home Remedy for Back Pain
Here is a home remedy for back pain that has worked wonders for me. When I was in my 20s I had my lower back go out 4 times. This is the kind of thing where you are on the couch for several days and the slightest wrong moves caused the most excruciating back pain like someone stuck a knife in your back. I read about some exercises you could do. Only one of those exercises did I continue regularly and it worked wonders. This is what you do. Lay on one side and point the bottom leg out straight. Draw the top leg up toward your chest. Take your bottom arm and pull the knee toward the floor. Twist your shoulders the opposite direction. Take your top hand and push in spots up and down your body to stretch the spine as you are twisting. Then do the other side. Do each side for about a minute. I got in the habit of doing this before I went to bed each night. Since then and 40 years later, knock on wood, I have not had my back go out even one time. The purpose is to twist the spine causing all the connecting muscles and tissues to stretch. After I had been doing it for several months, my spine started to loosen up and I would get popping sounds of the spine adjusting like you get when you go to the chiropractor. In fact this is one of the main positions the chiropractor does – if you have ever been to one you know what I am talking about. Don’t ever ever have back surgery. I know a number of people who have done that and all of them said it was a mistake. Back pain is slow to heal. I was sore for a year or so after I started twisting but, thank the lord, it never went out again and I got completely well.
