Homeopathic medicines for Low Back Pain offer the best alternative treatment for low back pain
Low Back Pain

Low back pain is a very common problem. Almost everyone suffers low back pain during his or her lifetime. It can completely limit one’s movement. At times, the pain may be so severe that one is forced to remain in bed. Before we come to the topic of the homeopathic medicines for low back pain, let us understand the problem a bit.

Here when we refer to low back pain, we mean the chronic variety. It is one of the most common causes for visit to a doctor. At the same time, it is also one of the most important reason for missing one’s work.

Common Causes of Low Back Pain ( कमर दर्द के कारण)

The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fiber foods are consumed less and less.

This is a worldwide trend and is seen across all ages and cultures. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles.

Treatment for Low Back Pain-exercises and home treatment for low back pain (कमर दर्द का इलाज- कुछ व्यायाम और घरेलु नुस्खे)

Treating low back pain requires a multi pronged approach. Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in one’s posture or reducing weight or improving one’s lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body.

For this, exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Here one needs to stress on a point that losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan.

Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful (दर्द निवारक दवाओँ का लम्बे समय तक प्रयोग हानिकारक हो सकता है)

When it comes to treating low back pain, there is too much reliance on painkillers in the allopathic system of medicine. The effect of these is only temporary and lasts for a few hours. Once the effect wears off, you have to take another painkiller.

While painkillers may be necessary in acute stage and when the pain is unbearable, it is not a long term solution or treatment for low back pain. On the contrary, they can be harmful. Prolonged use of painkillers is known to cause detrimental effect on the kidneys. They may also be associated with some other unpleasant side effects and allergies. Under these circumstances, it makes sense to seek a permanent cure or treatment of the low back pain.

Alternative treatment or Homeopathic treatment for low back pain (कमर दर्द का होम्योपैथिक इलाज)

When it comes to the medicinal treatment, homeopathic medicines for back pain are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also very helpful in the chronic stage of back pain. It must be said here that homeopathy offers a much better alternative for the permanent cure for low back pain.

The focus of the homeopath is not just to relieve the immediate pain but to also eliminate the root cause of the pain. That is precisely why the homeopath asks so many questions which may or may not seem related to your immediate problem.

Stress is one of the causes of low back pain

A common cause that one easily overlooks is the presence of stress in an individual. Mental stress can also contribute to low back pain and the doctor should take it into account while taking the details of the patient. This is absolutely necessary if you want a lasting cure.

Homeopathy for low back pain

Here one must understand that the homeopathic remedies for back pain are purely natural remedies and do not contain any painkillers or any synthetic chemicals. The convenience of taking homeopathy for back pain can even surpass that of taking home remedies for low back pain. Almost everyone who takes homeopathy for back pain would have taken a lot of home remedies for the back pain before switching to homeopathy. This is because the home remedies work for a short period of time and provide only temporary relief. In contrast to the home remedies for back pain, Homeopathic remedies provide permanent cure from the backache.
