Chronic Back Pain Solutions For Seniors Citizens - Easy Home Treatment That Relieves Low Back Pains

in Back-pain

Are you a senior citizen suffering from chronic back pain or acute low back pain? Are you caring for your elderly relatives who are affected by backaches? You may wonder if there are special and appropriate remedies for treating back pain when aging. Fortunately, there are a few soft and natural home treatments very helpful for elder people. One of them is called balneotherapy.

Balneotherapy Meaning and Principle

Balneotherapy is probably one of the oldest-known therapies for relieving pain and symptoms of a wide range of diseases. Since time immemorial, it has been observed that a mineral-rich water bath ('balneum' in Latin) can heal people who suffer from chronic diseases such as rheumatics, skin problems, gastrointestinal disorders, muscle spasms, back injuries and respiratory troubles.

What's the therapeutic principle? Trace minerals such as sulfur, calcium, selenium, magnesium, copper, zinc, manganese and lithium are absorbed by the body through the skin and provide beneficial curative effects. The term 'balneotherapy' is often associated with 'hydrotherapy' and by extension it refers to everything relating to spa therapy.

Balneotherapy and Back Pain

A few reliable scientific studies have demonstrated that balneotherapy can appreciably alleviate people who are suffering from back problems. Regular bath in mineral water (the studies have been done with mineral water containing sulfur) can reduce both low back pain and muscle spasms. They improve spine mobility too.

Simple Use and Precaution

You may buy Dead Sea salts or other sulfur-containing bath salts in a health natural products store (it's relatively inexpensive). Run a warm bath, pore salts in water and soak up the benefits of the medicinal water for about 15 minutes. If you are suffering from heart problems you should speak first with your doctor before applying these suggestions.

Last Important Advice

We must recognize with modesty that balneotherapy is not 'the backache miracle cure' as some people think it is! Nevertheless, it helps quite well. Alone, this cure can't cut your back pain by 100%.

As an excellent complementary treatment to balneotherapy I suggest you to follow a simple but effective home treatment that corrects very softly spine alignment and consequently can help get rid of back pains forever. Jerry from California who had been suffering from back problems for 50 years finally discovered an easy way to definitively end his back pains.
