The 10 best natural medications for a sore back

At Round Rock Health & Wellness Center we want to do the best possible job, to have you in the least amount of pain, in the least invasive way. We offer massage services, acupuncture services and chiropractic services to help you be the best you can be.

Massage therapy has been proven to reduce pain and inflammation in muscle tissues and joints. Massage therapy helps the body circulate fresh blood and lymph to areas that have injury and inflammation. These fresh fluids bring new life to tired and achy muscles. Deep tissue massage therapy can break down fascial adhesions that have been created in over worked and dehydrated muscle fibers.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has also been shown to help the body bring itself back into balance. TCM addresses imbalances and not necessarily only symptoms.

Chiropractic services help bring the spine back in alignment which can take pressure and tension off of muscles. This adjustment to the spine then allows the muscles to return to a relaxed state and can reduce pain to the joints as a result of the treatment.

Chiropractors and massage therapists can asses your body mechanics and posture then make recommendations of stretches and exercises to lengthen and stretch tight muscles. When the stretch is performed, the pressure is taken off of the joints which helps relive pain.

In addition to natural health physical modalities, there are a great number of natural remedies for sore muscles. Turmeric is a great spice that in known for reducing inflammation. Another plant based pain reliever is white willow bark. Ice and heat can be used by applying to the painful area. Your massage therapist, chiropractor or acupuncturist can advise you to which one is best for your situation. Young Living Essential Oils have several blends that are helpful for pain. My favorites are Panawy and Copaiba.
