Depending on what is causing it, back pain can signalize a serious medical condition that should send you to the doctor immediately. Back pain symptoms vary depending on what generated the pain in the first place. Back pain caused by an injury is limited to the back area and it doesn’t affect other body parts, like hips or legs.
Lower backache that doesn't disappear in a few days is a signal that something is not right and if it lasts for a few months it already becomes chronic. It can also be caused by a herniated disc or by sciatica (pressure on the sciatic nerve). In these cases symptoms include a pain that also radiates in the hips and legs and it affects only one body part.
Back pain symptoms should be carefully analyzed, together with a physician in order to establish what is causing them and the proper action that needs to be taken. Certain types of physical exercise are beneficial for backache, but they should only be done after consulting a specialist. Over exercising can cause serious complications.
Massage is also recommended for relaxing the back muscles and for providing relief from backache symptoms. If you also use essential oils for massaging, the results will be even better. Turpentine oil and Rumatone Gold oil are very effective. Rumatone Gold oil reduces the inflammation fast because it penetrates the skin and the muscular tissue very quickly. Use any type of oil, like mustard or coconut oil to fry ten garlic gloves in it. This way you obtain what is called garlic oil and you can use it for massaging the painful areas. Mint and eucalyptus oil also relive the pain.
Back pain symptoms can be ameliorated using herbs. Those containing anti-inflammatory and analgesic substances are highly recommended. Some of them have the same properties as aspirin, only that they don't produce any side effects if used for a longer period of time. Boswelia, willow, rosemary and devil's claw are just a few examples of herbs with a high anti-inflammatory action. Valerian and Jamaican dogwood are also recommended in case of severe pain in the back because they are powerful sedatives.
The smartest thing to do if confronted with back pain, is to see a physician and to determine together the correct approach towards your illness. Don't be afraid to ask about alternative treatment methods and choose whatever seems more appropriate for you. The bottom line is that back pain symptoms can be kept under control and they shouldn't mess up your entire life.
