Potential quick fixes for low back pain

In my experience the majority of people come to me complaining of low back pain. It seems to be a large reason for doctors visits and disability. In many cases it takes a multimodal approach to treatment in order to  fix back pain but in this article, I give you a few things to try tog et a quick fix. Please note that this does not replace an assessment and treatment by a licensed health professional.

#1 - Methylcobalamin. Have you tried methylcobalamin?  Methylcobalamin is the activated form of vitamin B12 and  it can help relieve back pain. Fantastic news! Aside from its effects on low back pain, it is able to also tackle nutritional diseases and some other diseases like arthritis and Alzheimer's disease and acts as an analgesic with benefits on peripheral neuropathy as well as reducing the symptoms of spontaneous and burning pain.

The B12 vitamin is popular in its use to address nutritional deficiencies especially in sports-related settings. So, what can you do to ensure you are getting enough of the B12 vitamin? Consuming foods that are rich in vitamin B12 is a good start and such foods include milk products, poultry, meat, fish and eggs.

#2 - Walking Uphill.  Walking uphill could provide relief. Relief is due to the inclined angle the back takes when walking uphill. It is especially helpful with those with a flat back. Sometimes, having a flat back could result in seemingly never-ending soreness and increasing the angle of inclination can help.

#3 - Get Unstable Shoes. This is similar to a previous post I had where I mentioned barefoot walking as a tool to improve back pain. Wearing unstable shoes for as long as six weeks can significantly reduce chronic low back pain shown in one research study. Most people will look in a shoe store for the nice supportive shoe but maybe from now on you will reach for the ones that are not designed as stable!

 

Well there you have it! I am sure you have not thought of these as being helpful to reduce your low back pain. SO give it a try! Contact the physiotherapy associates at MOBO Physio, Physiotherapy in north York. Email info@mobophysio.com.
