Say Goodbye To The Back Pain With This Magic Trick

Nowadays, more and more people are suffering from back pain, mainly caused by sitting too much, standing too long, or lack of physical activity. The most common illness is that of the lower back area, which is also known as "lumbago". It represents the 2nd reason for consultation of general practitioners in France and the first cause of disability before the age of 45 years. This pain of the lumbar costs annually 2.3 billions dollar to health authorities.

The spine and its function

The vertebral column contains 4 coccyx vertebrae, 5 sacrum, 5 lumbar, 7 cervical and 12 thoracic vertebrae, or 33 in total. They are all linked to blood vessels, nerves, muscles and ligaments, thus keeping the whole body united.

Vertical posture of the body is possible because the nerve roots of the arms and legs, as well as those of the spinal cord, pass through a spinal canal that has a tube shape.

In addition, different ranges of motion are attributed to different parts of the spine. For example, the part of the chest is remarkably less mobile with respect to the part of the neck.

Causes of Back Pain

The increased risk of lumbago can be caused by continuous physical work, a continuous sedentary position, a false movement, an abrupt and intensive effort or by the practice of sport without heating. In addition, people with osteoporosis or congenital anomalies in the spine after surgery or spinal injury may also suffer from lumbago.

Treatment and prevention of back pain

Comfrey is a herb usually found in wet fields, meadows and near water, it is very beneficial to treat and relieve back pain. You can cure and eliminate back pain by using an ointment made of comfrey root extract. All you need to do is rub 4 grams of this ointment on your sore back for five days, three times a day.

In addition, the comfrey gel is also effective in treating pain like that after dislocation of the knee joints or osteoarthritis.
