Back pain is something that is experienced by many people but you might be surprised to learn that some of the things that can help you overcome problems with your back may actually be able to help you to prevent having backaches in the future. There are a number of different problems that can be overcome by almost forgotten arts that have been used for, at times, thousands of years. One of these is acupressure, a distant cousin of acupuncture. It has been practiced for a very long time and many people swear by it, saying that it helps them overcome everything from overeating to a sore back. If you have never tried acupressure before you would probably be surprised with how simple it is to go through and how much you can actually help you. |
Acupressure is actually just the applying of pressure on the body with the fingertips or thumbs in the same areas that acupuncture is applied. Believe it or not, this actually seems to be a little bit more effective than acupuncture in many cases and it may actually help your back more than traditional physical therapy. It is painless and at times, actually rather enjoyable to go through this process. Finding someone that does acupressure in your area should not be too difficult, it is gaining in popularity and any homeopathic doctor should be able to point you in the right direction.
Of course, medical science is not going to get behind a natural cure so you're going to have to look at some independent studies in order to find out whether this is an effective treatment for back pain or not. According to some studies that were done in which some people received acupressure for their back pain while others received more traditional physical therapy, the people who received acupressure actually had a higher percentage of recovery. These are rather amazing numbers, considering the fact that many doctors and even insurance companies will not recognize acupressure as a legitimate medical practice.
It is going to be up to you whether you want to use acupressure as a way to overcome your back pain but it may be preferable to pharmaceuticals that have a number of different side effects. Not only that, pharmaceuticals and doctors rarely ever treat the actual problem, they simply help you to be able to deal with the symptoms. Acupressure, on the other hand, goes right to the source of the problem and attempts to treat it from there. It is a great way for you to be able to overcome these type of problems naturally.
Depending on why you are experiencing the pain there may be one cure that works better for you. Experiment a little bit and try to find the one that helps the most.
