Back Problems - November 7th 2011, 02:04 AM

So, I have these horrendous back issues. I get really stiff all the time and it hurts to twist. I haven't been able to pop my back for about 2 years, so there's a lot of tension building up. There have been people that touch my back and can feel all the knots. I can't afford a chiropractor or anything along those lines. Do you guys have any ideas for something I can do at home to make this go away? I'm really tired of being in pain because of it.

There are some methods you can try, but nothing compared to a chiropractor.

First, a bath as hot as you can stand. Feel free to add some bath salts or oils that are specifically for stress. Relax for a good 10-15 minutes. Don't wash up or shave. Just bring a book and relax. Light some candles with soothing scents if you want.

Another thing is to use over the counter muscle medicines, such as Bengay or any other of your choice. Use this every day. Depending on the medication, you can do it up to 4 times a day. Some might say to do it a max of 4 days or so, that's fine.

You cna also try Alleve or Motrin or Ibuprofen for the anti-inflammatory effect they have. As well as heat compresses for 15 minutes at a time.

If there is someone you trust, you can have them find a knot and GENTLY press on it while moving their fingers in a circular motion around the knot. This gets blood flowing through that area which helps your body to heal itself there.

Hey there,
Thank you so much!! I'll definitely test some of those methods.
