When a person experiences back pain of some sort, one of the most simple ways of treating it is to apply heat or ice to the injured area. It can be very effective, and it is very easy for anyone to do at home. However, it is also one of the most misunderstood therapies in back pain treatment, because many people do not know when it is best to use ice instead of a heating pad, and vice versa!
Russ was doing a favor for his daughter by building a deck for her wedding shower. However, while working on the desk he ended up rupturing a disc in his back. The pain was severe, and got so bad that he could barely work. He was taking painkillers constantly and tried other treatments to relieve the pain but nothing seemed to work. He feared he would have to resort to surgery to help relieve his pain. Fortunately, he found out about the Illinois Back Institute and came to see us for treatment instead.
The focus of today's tip on foods that can help improve the overall health of your back is berries! In a previous tip we discussed why Cherries are a great food for your back; and while cherries and berries are not related (cherries are related to plums, peaches, and almonds), berries are also a great food because they contain some of the same substances that cherries do which can help to improve your back health.
