backaches... Get rid now??

There are a whole host of reasons why you might experience backaches. Some causes might be a consequence of everyday life (such as bad posture whilst driving or when sitting at your desk) or, less often, it might be a result of some underlying disease. The majority of cases of backaches are linked to simple mechanical problems, less than 5% signify nerve root pain and less than 2% reflects serious spinal pathology.
Backache Symptoms

Pain itself is a very subjective feeling and its perceived severity is highly influenced by personal opinion and the circumstances under which it occurs. The back pain symptoms can vary largely from one person to the next. They include:

1. Aching

2. Stiffness

3. Numbness

4. Weakness

5. Tingling (pins and needles)
Here are Some Home Remedies

1. Ask someone massage the affected area with herbal oils using knuckles and increasing pressure slowly. After a few minutes you will feel less
discomfort. This gets rid of tension and relaxes the muscles in that area.

2. Every time you lift something, remember to bend your knees first, this will prevent your lower back from getting tense causing damage to your spine and back muscles.

3. Never twist while lifting this can have bad effect on your vertebrates.

4. Avoid lifting heavy objects in the last couple of weeks of your pregnancy.

5. Do not sit in couches, always sit in firm chairs supporting the lumbar area with a pillow. This will help you keep your waist and lower back in the proper position.

6. Apply St. john’s wort directly to the back area.

CAUTION: Do not suntan, this oil makes your skin very sensitive to the sun.
