Back pain nagging again?
Anti-inflammatory drugs may help a little, here's what you can do instead
Back pain can really get disabling. The nagging pain can not only put you on stress but also meddles with your daily routine. According to a recent study published in'annals of the rheumatic diseases, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (nsaids) may help a little in getting rid of back pain. On the other hand, excessive usage of such drugs may cause bleeding and ulcers in stomach among other gastro-intestinal problems.
Experts from the george institute for global health, australia conducted experiments to test the effectiveness of existing medicines that used commonly used for treating back pain. The team examined more than 6000 people from 35 trials.
It was found that only one in every 6 patients received any considerable benefit from consuming such medications.
The team also brought to light the fact that, in most cases, the effects of nsaids are short-lived and often harm people's health. Taking these facts into account, the experts urged to focus more of preventive measures over treatment.
Back pain can be caused by a host of different reasons. From an old injury resurfacing, to excessive sitting, sedentary lifestyle and incorrect posture - the culprit can be any or a cocktail of all. Prevention would certainly involve taking short breaks at work, investing in physical exercise, practicing flexibility enhancing techniques like yoga, assuming a correct sitting posture and eating a balanced diet. A series of backward bending yoga postures can help relieve back pain. Some of these would include
Bhujangasana (cobra pose)
Balasana (child's pose)
