Symptom relief is JUST symptom relief. It does not address the underlying cause of your pain. To get lasting relief, and to make sure pain is prevented you must address the cause.

How To Relieve 75% Of Your Pain
As I said, it is easy to relieve back pain. Did you know that 75% of your pain is caused by what is called 'trigger points'? If you are not familiar with this term, go to our web page top learn more on Trigger Points.
But a brief overview - trigger points are small localized spasms of muscle. They develop as muscles tire and tighten from overwork. When you have spinal imbalances, both your muscles and joints are forced to work harder than they should.
With time as this stress increases, trigger points form, and studies have shown they can account for 75% of your pain.
You can remove these trigger points and relieve back pain quickly. Remember, this is a temporary fix, these trigger points will return unless you remove the causes.
To release the trigger point is easy...
If you have lower back pain the common trigger points will be in the lower back muscles to the side of your spine. There may be others around your pelvic line in the buttock muscles. But it is the lower back muscles that are a common source of pain.
For the upper back and neck, the trigger points are more in muscles at the base of your neck/upper back - where people love to rub when giving you a shoulder massage. There may be some in your upper back between your shoulder blades that you may need help reaching.
The technique to ease them is the same for both areas. You don’t really need to try to locate them, you know when you are on the spot, as pain will occur and possibly radiate away from the area.
To release a trigger point place pressure on the point, firm enough to feel discomfort and possibly some radiation of pain. You can use a fingertip or thumb, but for most people it is easier to lie on a tennis ball to put pressure on these areas.
Simply move the tennis ball around the area until you feel the discomfort of the trigger point. If the point is more acute, you will get what is called a jump sign - you will actually jump when you apply pressure on the point.
Hold the pressure there for 10-20 seconds and then take a deep breath in and out and relax the pressure. Even after doing this just once you may find the tension in the spot decrease.
You may need to do the process 2 or 3 times to release the trigger point completely and to relieve back pain.
Once you release the trigger point it is best to then stretch the muscle to stimulate the blood supply to the area and to help reduce overall tension.
Here's a brief video to demonstrate the process...
For most people you will have developed numerous trigger points in various muscles, as your muscles have been overworked or stressed. You can locate these using what is called trigger point mapping, as each muscle has a well defined area where trigger points will form.

Do You Want To Relieve Back Pain Permanently
Relieving back pain is a simple process, once you work out what works in your particular situation, you can literally turn off the pain signals.
But pain relief only lasts so long until you address the underlying cause. Research has proven that the cause of ALL back pain, including neck pain and sciatica, is due to what is called Spinal Imbalance.
Unless you learn to rebalance your spine, pain will keep repeating.
Correcting the spinal imbalances is actually an easy process though. It doesn't require any special skills, or endless treatment session with a practitioner. People in pain, like yourself can easily return your spine to balance at home ... in just a few minutes.
Yes, a few minutes each day to rebalance your spine. Once back in balance, maintaining a healthy spine is even easier and requires even less time ... and not daily, just once a month or two.

To regain the balance you need to live pain free, you must target ALL the areas causing your pain ... muscle balance and joint balance ... and even what is called your healing response time.
But as I said it is an easy process, takes minimal time and helps to relieve back pain quickly, but make sure you remain pain free.
