I am suffering with lower back pain which comes out of the blue and gets worse as the day goes on, i take different things to try and reduce the amount of pain i am in but nothing seems to work, all they do is make me feel tired. i have been to see my doctor about this and they dont give me anything for the pain.

do you have any suggestions to what i can do to try and reduce the pain i am in?

Thanks

My husband has been living with back pain for some years now. His seems to be similar to yours. Some days it is ok while others it starts out bad and gets worse. The pain meds are addictive and not particularly effective. We have tried many things over the years. What works best for him is a walk of about 20 minutes followed by hydrotherapy. He does this morning and evening. We chose an Atera Spa because you can control the temperature like in your home. Cooler in summer and warmer in winter as the temperature doesn't seem to make as much difference as the massage of the jets. Good luck and best wishes!

Back pain can be solved with
30% of the adult world population is suffering from back pain. I experienced chronic back pain for 25 years. I went to 40 specialists and I didn't get any real help. Muscular inflexibility is the culprit and the accomplice to the crime is our conventional approach to stretching which is ineffective. Active Isolated Stretching and I recommend that you seek out a skilled therapist in your state (you may have to travel but it is worth it). The Mattes method will take you through an assisted stretching protocol that will lengthen a series of tightened muscles that are causing pressure on your lower back.
