Chronic backache II

Take an aspirin a day
Back pain is often accompanied by inflammation around the site of the pain and over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin can help take it away.

Natural anti-inflammatory
If you are looking for a natural anti-inflammatory, try some white willow bark, which can be found in capsule form in health food stores. Taken after meals, it should not hurt your stomach and it works very well on mild to moderate back pain. Those who suffer from ulcers and heartburn, however, should not use it.

Visualise yourself pain free
Use your senses in visualization. The more involved the image is the more you are engaged with it and the quicker you will become distracted from the pain.

Turn your pain upside down
Gravity inversion works wonders on back pain. Gradually doing inversion traction with a proper, safe inversion apparatus for 5 to 10 minutes a day will really work to rid you from lower back pain.

T'ai chi
It is a great relaxation method that helps the muscles in your back. There are a lot of breathing exercises and stretching activities that foster a harmony within the body.
