I highly recommend that anyone with back pain from injuries steer clear of any form of pain relieving drugs. With that, there are alternatives Â such as yoga classes or stretching that is recommended by a physical therapist.
The reason I suggest a physical therapist is because he or she can show and indicate to you the correct exercises to help you relieve chronic back pain. Taking a yoga class should help relief your back pain, but make sure you avoid getting into a position that hurts your back even more.
Some people report both yoga and stretching at least 20 minutes of home practice every day helps relieve pain. Not right away, after 3 to 4 months or more is when relief is noticeable.
At 12 weeks, more than half of participants in the yoga and stretching groups improved enough to take notice. They were surveyed, measuring improvement by the daily activities of yoga and stretching. The improvement was determined by the ease of getting out of a chair, climbing stairs or simply standing.
Like I said stay away from pain killers and anti-depressants and find natural alternatives to pain related injuries.
