Don’t rely on home remedies for back pain [Video]

If you have serious recurring back pain, there are a few reasons not to try and handle it yourself.

To start, the cause is likely going to be very specific. There are so many environmental and personal factors to consider that it can be easy to misdiagnose if you aren’t a doctor. Your lifestyle, weight, existing conditions and other┬ávariables will probably all come into play.

What’s more, signs can be misleading. Just because pain temporarily goes away doesn’t mean that you’re necessarily free of the pain for good. In fact, it could come back, and if you’re trying hard to fix it, you might not realize which of the steps you’re taking have been most effective.

A medical professional and chiropractor will be able to put the pieces together, using your history as evidence.
