Alternative Treatments for Low Back Pain

Chronic low back pain can interfere with your ability to sit for long periods and participate in certain activities. There are several causes for this type of discomfort, such as an injury. And while over the counter medications may provide some relief, it isn't always permanent. Are you looking for a better way to address your low back pain? Here are three tips to point you in the right direction. 

1. Chiropractic care. The thought of seeing a chiropractor with low back pain is frightening for some people. They fear that a doctor will cause additional discomfort. However, a chiropractor can accurately diagnose the problem, and then manipulate bones and the spine to help relieve pain. 

2. Acupuncture. Another way to relieve pain, acupuncture is the process of inserting fine needles into various parts of the body to restore the balance of energy. This restoration helps treat illnesses and cures pain. 

3. Massage therapy. Sometimes, low back pain results from muscle tension. Perhaps you're stressed or overworked. By means of massage therapy, a professional can ease tension and promote relaxation.
