Ways to relieve back pain without going to the doctor – Jakarta Post

Since inflammation is thought to play a role in the development of back pain, certain herbs thought to have anti-inflammatory effects may be useful for back pain relief. White willow bark for instance, may have pain-relieving properties similar to aspirin. Known as salicin, a compound found in white willow bark is converted in the body to salicylic acid. (Similarly, aspirin is also converted to salicylic acid once in the body.) Salicylic acid is believed to be the active compound that relieves pain and inflammation.

Key Takeaways:

  • When you get up in the morning, you may feel painful and stiff and cannot even sit down.
  • You can try putting a hot compress under your back when lying down with face up or on your back lying down face to the floor.
  • The heat can help warm your muscles, relieve stiffness and increase the blood flow to your back. However, do not use a compress that is too hot as it can damage your skin tissue.

“Laughter yoga is a type of yoga that helps people improve their health condition by laughing. When you laugh, your body intakes more oxygen, reduces stress and produces more endorphins (the hormone that helps relieve pain naturally).”
