When you think of back pain, you come with just two options: eat pills or tough it out. 


It is the most common form of pain; nearly 80 % of adults suffer from persistent, chronic back pain.


Starting from the wrong posture, restless long drives, untrained back muscles, any stress on the back that results in hardening and cramping of the back muscles, are some of the common causes of back pain.


Nowadays, even most of the medical doctors are increasingly switching to natural pain relief methods – such as yoga, meditation or herbal remedies – to help their patients feel better.

Here are the five ways to curb your back pain without medication. Book an online doctor appointment in Bangalore with Cureplus


1.      Massage


Several problems like osteoarthritis, back pain, tension headaches, neck pain, fibromyalgia, and surgery-related issues can be healed by massage therapy. Research has shown that massage therapy can boost the levels of serotonin and endorphins, which are natural painkillers as well as mood regulators present in the body.


2.      Acupuncture


This practice can relieve you from migraines, chronic back pain, osteoarthritis, headaches, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and rheumatoid arthritis. Acupuncture is one of the ancient practice in which tiny needles are inserted into specific areas of the body. It is also a part of a complete medical process aimed at correcting imbalances of energy in the body, which is known as chi or qi. Acupuncture not only relieves pain but it also enhances the functioning of the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
