Holistic Approach to Back Pain

Holistic Approach to Back Pain

Holistic medicine is a form of healing that takes every aspect of human beings into consideration. It means that it deals with body, mind, emotions, and spirit so that optimal health and well-being can be achieved. Instead of treating a certain condition or disease with medications and surgery, holistic medicine is all about gaining balance in life in the first place. Simply put, if there’s an imbalance in your life – emotional, spiritual, or physical – it’ll negatively affect your overall health, too. Here’s everything you need to know about a holistic approach to back pain, so keep on reading and learn something new today!

How to treat back pain holistically?

●     Start practicing yoga

Yoga is a group of mental, physical, and spiritual practices that originated from ancient India. As it tackles basically every single aspect of one’s life, it should definitely be your first step towards healing. Practicing yoga establishes balance in your body through different poses that can improve your strength and flexibility. Besides that, yoga can enhance your posture as well, which will inevitably help relieve chronic back pain. There are many poses that can help you stretch, work on your core stability, and improve your breathing. Make sure to give yoga a try and you’ll see a huge improvement shortly!

●     Opt for spinal manipulation therapy

Spinal manipulation therapy is another great option when it comes to alleviating back pain. Apart from that, this type of therapy can also encourage healing, ease muscle tightness, and restore joint mobility. It’s good to know that spinal manipulation is an adjunctive treatment for both acute and chronic back pain. Needless to say, this kind of therapy has to be performed by a professional in this field of medicine, so be sure to consult with them before you make a final decision. Experts in spinal manipulation therapy at Vitalis Physiotherapy are there to help you with anything you need. So, book your appointment and get rid of back pain as soon as possible!

●     Go for acupuncture

Many people claim that acupuncture is one of the best ways to relieve chronic low back pain. This type of therapy is actually a part of traditional Chinese medicine. It is used when a patient experiences pain that results from blocked energy along the meridians of the body. In order to relieve pain, acupuncture needles are being inserted along these invisible meridians. Similarly to spinal manipulation therapy, it’s also an adjunctive treatment for both chronic and acute back pain. If you want to give acupuncture a try, you should go for it one to three times a week, several weeks in a row. The great news is that some insurance plans pay for acupuncture, so take advantage of it and you’ll see what we were talking about!

●     Massage therapy is a good choice, too

Even though massage therapy isn’t as effective as the previously mentioned methods, it can certainly provide short-term relief when it comes to back pain. However, massage therapy can alleviate anxiety associated with chronic pain. This is extremely important as improving your mental health can significantly improve your physical health – especially when your body is in pain. So, if you need to relax, unwind, and stop thinking about your back pain at least for an hour, make sure to opt for massage therapy at least twice a week. Trust us when we say that you’ll gradually see amazing progress!

●     Give balneotherapy a try

Last but not least, there’s balneotherapy that also gives great results in relieving back pain. In case you didn’t know, it’s a form of hydrotherapy that includes bathing in warm or thermal water. Sulfur baths are the most common relief for back pain. These can reduce oxidative stress, which means that they can help your body detoxify. Also, many experts suggest that balneotherapy is one of the oldest treatments for arthritis. There were numerous studies which showed that this kind of therapy can provide pain relief and improve joint function, too, which is why you should give it a fair shot. All you have to do is to lie in a sulfur bath for at least an hour, so that the healthy chemicals can find their way into your skin and relieve pain. It doesn’t get better than that, right?

As you can tell, there are many useful tips on how to successfully deal with back pain in a holistic way. Of course, it’s all about approaching your health from every single level – physical, mental, spiritual, and emotional. Once you understand that, you’ll be able to listen to your body and help it heal properly. If you’re dealing with back pain, make sure to take these five amazing treatments into consideration. From yoga, spinal manipulation therapy, and acupuncture to massage therapy and balneotherapy, you’ll undoubtedly find an appropriate one according to your needs. Just don’t wait any longer, try them out, and you’ll do a fantastic job for your overall health!
