Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t seek treatment when back pain arises. Before they know it, they have a big problem. They might assume nothing—except for medication—can solve their back pain problem. Medication might mask the pain, but it won’t cure the problem’s root cause. Back Pain Solutions You’re in luck: Back pain can be cured! The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke covers a number of back pain remedies. These include the use of strength exercise, physical therapy and medication. Where medication is considered, anti-inflammatory drugs, analgesic medications and counter-irritants are the most popular. Before you can treat your back pain, however, you need to know why it started. Whether you’ve tweaked a muscle or have a deeper injury, a spine specialist can help.
The pain itself can hinder your ability to reach, lean, kneel, lift or bend. It can also hinder your time spent with friends and family. Direct pain aside, minor aches and cramps associated with a back pain problem can make you irritable—ruining your good time. What Causes Back Pain? A few things cause back pain. The American Physical Therapy Association covers each of these, but the following are leading causes:
· Spinal and core muscle weaknesses · Bad posture · Spinal muscle and tissue damage · Improper lifting form · Limited hip, spine and thigh muscle flexibility · Bad abdominal, pelvic and back muscle coordination

HOW TO PREVENT YOUR BACK PAIN!
www.bimcpt.com A little prevention goes a long way. If you want to avoid future back pain, you can make sure you’re being good to your back. Lift Properly You pick things up constantly. Even if you’re lifting something light, make sure you’re facing the object. Squat, keeping your spine straight. Lift with your leg muscles, as this will reduce the pressure placed on your spine. Use Good Posture When you’re standing, imagine a string is attached to the top of your head—lifting you up. This will keep your hips, spine, shoulders and neck aligned. If you’re sitting, don’t slouch. Use Strength Training Your body has hundreds of muscles. These muscles protect and control your spine. By lifting weights, running and swimming, you can keep them strong. Train your core muscles. In doing so, you’ll easily control quick, lifting movements. It never hurts to visit a physical therapist, either. Get regular check-ups, and make sure your body is in good condition. If you have a history of INGREDIENTS • 1 (28oz.) can whole tomatoes • 1 (12oz.) jar roasted red peppers, drained • 1/4 cup of half and half • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt • 1 teaspoon sugar • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black ground pepper • 2 garlic cloves TOMATO AND RED PEPPER SOUP INSTRUCTIONS Process all ingredients and 1/4 cup of water in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides as needed. Transfer your mixture to a medium sized saucepan, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring often, for 8 minutes or until hot.
back injuries, pain or minor aches, don’t hesitate to talk to a professional. You deserve a pain-free life, and your back will thank you.
