Natural Relief For Back Pain

Wednesday, 6 February 2013  |  Naomi

Many of us suffer or have suffered with back pain at some point in our lives. Finding something to help relieve back ache can be difficult. I find that a massage helps to relieve the pain and also makes me feel refreshed. But to have a massage 2 or 3 times a week soon becomes very expensive! So I have to keep my massages as a treat and struggle on with my back ache in the meantime. Thankfully there a number of helpful products that have been designed to address this specific problem and they are a lot cheaper than a massage!

The Flexibak Back Support Cradle has been designed to ease lower back pain and discomfort. Designed by an Osteopath, the Flexibak lets you enjoy natural back pain relief by correct decompressing of key joints, allowing natural movement to return. Even if you don’t suffer from back pain, the Flexibak is still beneficial as it will help to keep your lower back and its joints flexible and stable.

The Flexibak Back Support Cradle is a therapeutic, scientifically shaped pain relief product which encourages the lumbar and sacroiliac joints to open up. The unique rotational action of the Flexibak helps to facilitate the return of natural movement as pressure on inflamed joints is relieved. The recommended time for using the Flexibak is at least 10 minutes a day in the morning or the evening but the more you use the Flexibak the better.

Ever wished you could massage your own back? Well now you can with the Thera Cane Deep Pressure Massager. Resembling some sort of gardening implement, the Thera Cane is actually a unique self-massager which allows you to massage hard-to-reach areas of the body yourself. The leverage of the TheraCane Deep Pressure Massager makes it easy for you to apply deep compression to pressure points all over the body. When using the Thera Cane, pressure is applied to the muscles helping to maximise the flow of oxygenated blood to the muscles. The blood flow releases knots in the muscle fibres and tendons helping to restore muscle function.

Finally, the Triggerpoint The Grid Foam Roller. Used by athletes including Olympic gold medal winner Rebecca Adlington, the The Grid Foam Roller enables you to massage large muscle groups such as the lower back, lats and quads. Many people incorporate the Grid into daily workouts as well as a massage tool. Available in bright orange or sleek black, take the Triggerpoint Grid Foam Roller to the gym or use at home to relieve muscle aches and pains following exercise.
