Knots in the Back

Sunday morning – and my back went into spasm from a simple twist while I was sitting. Ouch, ouch, mega ouch!! I’ve done all the usual things to fix it – rest, heat, massage, pain relief, anti-inflammatories… it’s nearly there after three days of hobbling around. So now that I can move a bit more comfortably I turned to Dr Google. Here’s a few tips –

  1. Raili, Hope you are mending. Interesting video. Have you tried Aspercream? It works very well for me. It is a topical aspirin that you apply to the area that is giving you pain.

    1. I get this now and then from the simplest things. Stretching is great for all kinds of knots – neck, shoulders. I’m going to find me some of that comfrey. I expect it would be very good.

  2. Sorry to hear that I know how painful it can be! I use ice or rather cool packs that go in the freezer they reduce the inflammation, My osteopath recommended 20 hot, then 20 mins cold. I hope you feel better soon, oh and keep moving ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  3. My father had some bad back spasms in the past that he actually cured by putting cabbage leaves on and wrapping it with plastic wrap overnight. Wishing you a fast recovery!

      1. Cabbage is very powerful! The best to eat if one wants to lose weight and apparently cures headache as well. It’s quite popular here in the Balkans to be used for the back pain. Hope it helps!

  4. My 30 year old niece has back trouble. She finds it help to hang upside down from the knees… somehow I don’t think that’s very useful information.

    Hope your back is continuing to improve, Raili xxx
