Back pain is a common ailment affecting millions of people worldwide, often leading to significant discomfort and decreased quality of life. While conventional medicine offers various treatments for back pain, many individuals are turning to natural remedies for a more holistic approach to pain relief. This article explores effective natural remedies for managing and alleviating back pain, offering a gentle yet powerful alternative to traditional treatments.

1. Coconut Oil for Back Pain

Coconut Oil is a versatile natural remedy known for its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties, making it an excellent choice for relieving back pain. When applied topically, the lauric acid found in coconut oil helps reduce inflammation and pain. Gently massage warm coconut oil onto the affected area to help soothe muscle tension and promote healing. Its moisturizing effects also support skin health, adding an additional benefit to its use for back pain relief. Incorporating coconut oil into your back pain management routine can offer a comforting, natural option for pain alleviation.

2. Essential Oils for Pain Relief

Peppermint and Lavender Essential Oils are renowned for their analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Applying these oils topically can provide immediate relief for back pain. Mixing a few drops with carrier oil and massaging it directly onto the affected area can help soothe muscle tension and reduce inflammation.

3. Herbal Supplements

Turmeric and Ginger are two powerful herbs known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Incorporating these herbs into your diet or taking them as supplements can help reduce inflammation and back pain. Turmeric contains curcumin, a compound that helps to alleviate pain, while ginger can improve blood circulation and relieve sore muscles.

4. Heat and Cold Therapy

Alternating between Heat and Cold Packs can be highly effective for back pain relief. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the painful area, while heat therapy enhances blood flow and relaxes tight muscles. Applying a cold pack for 15-20 minutes followed by a warm heat pad can offer significant relief.

5. Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to relieve pain. It's particularly beneficial for chronic back pain, as it targets pain centers and promotes natural healing and relaxation.

6. Yoga and Stretching

Engaging in Yoga and Regular Stretching can significantly improve flexibility, strengthen the back muscles, and reduce pain. Gentle yoga poses and stretches that focus on the spine can help alleviate tension and promote a better range of motion.

7. Anti-Inflammatory Diet

Adopting an Anti-Inflammatory Diet plays a crucial role in managing back pain. Foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids, antioxidants, and fiber can reduce inflammation and support overall spine health. Incorporate leafy greens, fatty fish, nuts, and seeds into your diet to fight inflammation naturally.

8. Stay Hydrated

Hydration is key to maintaining the health of spinal discs, which are crucial for cushioning the vertebrae. Drinking plenty of water throughout the day helps keep the discs hydrated, reducing the risk of back pain.

9. Proper Posture and Ergonomics

Maintaining Proper Posture and ergonomic practices, especially while sitting and standing, can prevent and reduce back pain. Ensure your workspace is set up to support your back and take regular breaks to stretch and move around.

10. Massage Therapy

Massage Therapy can offer tremendous relief for back pain sufferers. It helps to release tension in the back muscles, improve circulation, and promote relaxation. Consider scheduling regular massage sessions to manage chronic back pain effectively.


Natural remedies for back pain provide a holistic alternative to traditional medicine, focusing on the body's innate ability to heal and maintain balance. Incorporating these natural treatments into your daily routine can significantly relieve back pain and improve your overall well-being. Remember, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new treatment regimen, especially if you have chronic back pain or other underlying health conditions.

Hello! I am just wondering if a daily intake of 2 tablespoons of ACV with 8 oz. water twice a day can help prevent back pain, diarrhea, migraine, high blood pressure, and blood sugar? As preventive rather than curative?

Hi all, I was chatting with a lady at work who suggested Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) and Apple Cider Vinegar. For a year I have suffered with constipation, bad back and general tighness of muscles in the neck area. For 20 yrs I have had trouble with fibroids (had surgery but too multiple to remove all). On 26-5-07, I bought BSM and ACV. I took it right away, doses-2 large spoons of BSM in warm water, followed by 3 tablespoons of ACV in warm water. I done this morning b4 breakfast and last thing at night. The second day on it I had a very easy bowel movement and have done everyday since. My constipation is now a thing of the past. My back (which I had to get medication from the doctors for-didnt help) was cured during the week, along with the muscle ache. I sleep deeper and dont seem to eat as much. I totally know that this 'tonic' as I like to call it will clear my fibriods eventually. I also want to see after 3months how i do as I want to give it to my Auntie for her Arthritis. I thank you all for posting your experiences as this has given me constant strength and encouragement. I look forward to this journey and please if you are having or have had VICTORY over fibriods with 'The Tonic' then please post so I can read it. I am a big beliver in foods for healing and this sure is a testament to God's produce. Smiles

I use ACV for many ailments, but find that it actually increases inflamation and pain in my back if I take it for any length of time. Does this happen to anyone else?

Maybe it is having a detoxing effect on your body? I'm not a Dr. but do know that when you start to rid your body of toxins it goes thru a withdrawal period. Try eliminating dairy and wheat and see if that helps.

Hi, maybe you might think I'm crazy, but I came onto your website just by browsing, out of sheer frustration. Two years ago I pulled neck muscles from lifting a heavy object. Finally I went to the doctor after months of suffering. He did tests and said I have degenerative arthritis in my 4-5-6 vertebra. Its been there along time with no problem, but he gave me a shot of cortisone. Ok it went away.

Now two weeks ago I again lifted something heavy like my grandchild and bingo - Ideveloped muscle spasms in my neck or pulled tendons-i don't know, but I refuse to go to the doctor. I don't like medications. The pain was unbearable. Because it activates my neck arthritis. So I came upon the site and i started taking apple cider and honey with grape juice. Also --soaking a rag in acv and putting it on my neck with a heating pad. Bingo - feels so much better. Can't believe it!

We use ACV for several different health benefits. ACV has become a part of our daily routine. I have a severe asthma, sinus & back pain. What it does the rest, is an extra benefit for us. We believe that it helps us tremendously.

We take 1 shot 1/2 hr before every meal. This takes care every health issues that we have. Sometimes we put some in our salad. It adds lots of flavor. For those who is overweight or maintaining your weight and want to each funk food. Taking 1 shot before each meal, is the way to go. ACV breaks down fattening food.

2 tsp honey, 2 tsp apple cider vinegar in 8 to 16 ounces of water 3 times a day cured my arthritis, back pain and allergies. I was in so much pain for many many years with severe back problems, and then 2 years ago was diagnosed with rheumatoid and osteoarthritis. The dr. prescribed steroids, and 2 different immuno suppressant drugs and the side effects were horrible. I could hardly get out of bed in the morning, my joints and muscles hurt so bad, i also have fibromyalgia. I started this regimen about a month ago and saw immediate results. My hay fever has cleared up also. My sinuses are dry, usually I always have a bad post nasal drip problem. I feel more energized, and my body just feels good, like it is getting what it needs.

Hi Susan, good post! I have chronic pain from fibromyalgia as well, and use Serrapeptase. I will NEVER be without that. No more writhing in pain all night. It had hurt just to move, let alone turn over, or try and get out of bed! I can walk upright again. It literally gave me my life back. Works right away. I also take MSM.

I have had chronic lower back pain for years and after taking AVC twice daily for a month I have noticed a drastic difference. I was restricted in activities and now I can do just about everything. While at the doctor's I also found out that my blood pressure dropped from 124/80 to 116/68. In January, 2006 I was diagnosed with acid reflux, which resulted with pills every day. Since taking the AVC I haven't had to take any medication for the acid reflux. I believe it has also helped with my allergies. This really is a miracle cure.

I have a back problem and it got even worse when an employee that I work with pushed me from behind and I found myself on the floor in pain. Good thing there was nothing broken but it left me with a terrible back pain. I could hardly walk and if I do, it would be like a slow motion picture. I was downing anti-inflammatory 3x a day, but the doctor only recommends 2x a day. I really don't care at that time. I was also taking tylenol around 12 tabs a day plus a muscle relaxant. None of it work or if it did, it would only provide very little relief which is close to nothing. Then a friend of mine mentioned ACV and I remembered my mom telling me about that about 2 and a half decades ago. I went to the internet and found this site. I thought I would give it a try. Nothing to lose on my part, but everything to gain. The first couple of days of taking ACV, it really didn't do anything for me. But on the third day, I felt a tremendous change. My pain was almost gone. I want to mention that on the second day, I didn't stick to the 3x a day regimen for ACV. I think I drank ACV at least 7 times (3 tablespoons each dose) for the second day. When I felt my pain was almost gone, I went back to my 3 times a day. And up to now, I am still taking ACV. And I am only taking half a pill of my medication for the whole day. This miracle happen in a span of 3 days. It was like a birthday present to me because the third day was my actual birthday and I was able to entertain friends that came over. ACV is a true natural miracle. Thanks to ACV I once again have my life back. Thanks to my mom also for just being mom.

I've had severe lower back pain all week (hurts to sit, stand, lie down, walk, move...)

I took a 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda & 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar in a full mug of filtered water at 9.30am this morning.

I went back to sleep and woke up at 2pm. The pain is vastly reduced.

Side note: I usually drink 1-2 tablespoons ACV in juice almost every day - and this didn't reduce my back pain at all.

Thank you Ted, I had back discomfort for a few years. I bought shoe inserts, heating pads, creams for pain, and a new mattress. Each of these things would help temporarily. I started your ACV/baking soda remedy last night and I slept well. This morning I awoke to very little feels like the inflammation is almost gone. Like the other responders said..I had new energy, better attitude, no yeast itching,and space to fasten my tight jeans. Whatever it is, this is great.

I have had lower back pain for years and sciatica started a few months back when I fell. I have read numerous remedies. So I combined everyones suggestions and came up with these. Drink a mixture of cut ginger root (5-7 slices), turmeric and curry powder, (1/2 tsp)in a tall shaker container,(I steep in hot water for 5-10 min. then fill the rest w/cool water). Also have been doing the ACV, (3 tblspn) in water through out the day, (same container). Like OMG, what a difference. Also bought the Virgin Coconut Oil and put all over my body. My aches and even the "squeeking" of my knees when I kneel/bend are gone. I have always tried to go natural and have many books on herbs, etc. This website is AWSOME!! Oh, also the cold showers - WOW, what a difference. I always wondered when I swimming in the ocean and the water was about 65 my back never hurt - Eureka - now I know.

Atlas Alignment, Rolfing

Posted by Cateye (Melbourne, Vic., Australia) on 10/24/2011

My mother, aunt, great-aunt, sister and I have this issue. My mother calls it her witches hump.

I thought I was stuck with it, I always stood and sat with my neck jutting forward as if unable to straighten. It looked gross, 'slovenly' in photos.

I suspect it is a physiological problem caused by injury, fluoride/excess calcium-on-a-genetic-pattern combo and other damage compounded by psychology.

For the last ten years I've been trying to manage and cure my back pain, and I've recently made huge *HUGE* leaps towards cure. I've never felt so strong or so pain-free (and mentally calm) as the last six months or so since I had my atlas aligned. I wrote the speil under the 'scoliosis' heading too, because it seems to have corrected the twist between my shoulders.

But the hump has disappeared altogether. I'm 38 and really thought I'd turn in to the classic, brittle, wisp of a British Lady Crone figure by 55-60yrs... And was well on the way. Now I see myself as a staunch old lady with an imposing presence. : )

The most dramatic change was having my atlas aligned. SUCH a dramatic thing I can't stress it enough. The other is to find a genuine 'Rolfer', also known as 'structural integration' practioner, who essentially looks at where your body is going wrong and irons out the issues over ten sessions. I heard it was called 'The Rolls Royce of Massage' before I'd tried it, and I certainly agree now. I can't go back to budget massage. Too annoying realising these people don't know what they're doing and you're paying them to do it.

Anyhoo, my two cents. Atlas alignment is brilliant. So is Rolfing.


Ball Point Pen Technique

I'm not a doctor, THIS IS NOT MEDICAL ADVICE, I'm only telling you what happened to me. Consult you doctor before you try anything. If you get hurt, don't waste your time suing me, you won't get much.

This post will probably be too long for most readers, but if you have LOWER BACK PAIN, I want you to know that I understand what you're going through.

I fixed my LOWER BACK PAIN with a BALL POINT PEN - no, I didn't write a check. First some background and then I'll get to the point. I had back pain for 28 years - from age 17 to age 45. I'm 53 now and except for a couple of 'twinges' NO PAIN IN 8 YEARS. I spent an average of 3 days a month on my back. I had pain 75% of the time. I used to pee in a jar because it hurt too bad to get up and go to the bathroom.

My wife had to put on my shoes and tie them for me. To pick up something, I had to get down, slowly, on my knees and only if it wasn't heavy. I used to pay $80 for a hotel room just to get out of the car. I never slept in the hotel bed. I slept on the hard floor.

I couldn't do a lot of things like camping or hiking or dancing. I thought of myself as a cripple. I lived in fear of that pain, like a knife in my lower back, making me go to the ground. I never knew when it was going to hit.

I went to doctors and chiropractors and spent a lot of money. Had a lot of X-Rays done. I'll probably die of cancer. I was told that: - one leg was longer than the other (chiropractor) - I needed special shoes or lifts in my shoes (chiropractor) - I had a herniated disc (doctor) - I had soft tissue damage (doctor) - I had cracked vertebrae (doctor) - I needed surgery (at least 3 doctors)

I tried:

- heating pads (temporary relief)
- popping my own back (sometimes temporary relief, sometimes made it worse)
- bed rest - or on the floor rest (sometimes back to work the next day, sometimes 3 days to a week on my back)
- stretching exercizes prescribed by doctors (useless)
- very hot baths (temporary relief often followed by worse pain)
- TENS unit - electric stimulation - I bought one (temporary relief)
- heat, TENS (transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)followed with 'manupulation' (back popping) by chiropractors (temporary relief, usually followed by pain shortly thereafter or the next day
- hard mattresses, soft mattresses, hard chairs, soft chairs (hard chairs worked better for me)

I never ate any pills except over-the-counter muscle relaxors. I won't eat a pain pill. Too easy to get addicted.

Ok. I'm getting to the point:

One day I'm lying on the floor, missing work. My girlfriend is looking at the computer and trying to help me. She is reading about a home remedy for back pain. I'm telling her don't waste yourtime, go in the bedroom, there's a stack of books in there about back pain. Some by a girl named Zimmerman, if memory serves. I think it was a British physical therapist that told me about this cure, but with the pain, and not thinking clearly I really can't remember. Whoever it was, they have my eternal gratitude.

What the person on the net was recommending:

- wait until your pain gets better, don't start fixing it while you're having a lower back pain episode.
- Once your back gets back to 'normal' (for me that meant I was able to work around the pain, go to work, go somewhere)- Then get a ball point pen.
- Drop your drawers, bend over until you just start to feel scared. (most back sufferers don't like to bend over, that's often when the pain hits you)
- Place your fingers on your thighs, flat in the front, and make a mark with the pen where your middle finger touches your thighs one mark on each leg. Don't bend below where you feel comfortable (meaning don't go below the mark)
- DON'T Wash the marks off.
- Don't do it all at once, ten here, twenty there, and only if you feel safe doing it.
- After a week , if you feel comfortable with it, make a mark 1/2 inch (THAT'S ONE HALF OF AN INCH) below the first marks and now spend a week touching those new marks 100 times a day.
- You can see where this is going - All the way down to your toes.
- I took three months to do it.
- If you do it at 1/2 inch at a time it will probably take you a year, (I think the person who invented this was being overly cautious and trying to make sure no one got hurt)

Anyway, after 3 months of touching the slowly descending marks 100 times a day, I could touch my toes. Without fear. (But I would kind of work my way down each day) I had not bent over and touched my toes for 28 years. Now I could do it every day. And I still do it now. The lower back pain was (and is) GONE.

1) My theory - the reason this works - is that I had babied my back for years and the right muscles, the ones that are supposed to hold you up and aid in flexing and extending a person's back - were WEAK. I realized that all the treatments I had tried only treated the SYMPTOMS and did not solve the PROBLEM - my WEAK back. Also, I was able to function for many years with a bad back, but I believe I was using the WRONG MUSCLES. When my back was locked up, my spine was crooked, the wrong muscles were trying to do a job they were not intended for. Also, and this is important, I don't believe I had any real DAMAGE to my back, nothing broken or torn, that is why I think anyone who wants to try this should go to their doctor and make sure nothing is broken first.

I still touch my toes 100 times a day, twenty here, ten there. I keep a concrete block outside my back door and every now and then I bend down and lift it WITH MY BACK, not with my knees like the doctors say. DON'T TRY THIS YOURSELF. Now my back is strong, my muscles are flexible, and circulation in that area is good. Weak muscles are TENSE and have poor circulation. STRONG muscles are flexible and have good circulation.

Another thing I believe is that many back sufferers are stressed out people, their stress shows up in muscle tension. I don't think that is the only reason for back problems, but I believe stress is a major contributor.

Redou: Do you have a picture that explains this exercise? I cannot understand it. Thank you!

Replied by Redou

Hello Lita209

I apologize but I don't have a picture of this technique. Actually, I'm not sure a picture would help because all it would be is a person bending over and straightening up -again and again.

However, it's not complicated. My back pain was concentrated in my lower back so that's the area this exercize focuses on. If you bend over, your upper body is heavy. Raising and lowering your upper body will work your lower back. When people stand, they generally have a natural curve to their lower spine.

This curve points to the front, the way they are facing. (I have seen people who have poor posture have a backwards curve to the spine). Anyway, when you bend over, your body should bend like a folding knife, two straight lines at an angle to each other, and the natural curve of your lower back should now point downward.

Your legs should be straight and, when you bend, you should feel a stretching all the way down the backs of your legs. When you lower your upper body (start to bend) you should feel it pull the muscles in your lower back which was a scary feeling - at the time - for a chronic back sufferer like me. That is why you only bend over just a little bit at a time.

Do not use the middle of your back to bend and do not round your back. Keep your back straight all the way from your butt to your neck. As you lower your upper body to touch the marks on your legs, you will feel the muscles in your LOWER BACK stretch as you move downward to the marks. This means you are using only your lower back muscles to lower your entire upper body.

Then as you raise your upper body back to an upright, erect posture, you will feel the muscles in your lower back contract. If you keep your entire back straight - all the work is being done by the muscles in your lower back. This felt strange to me when I first tried it and I realized that I had been avoiding using these muscles for years. In my case, when I used to have back problems, these muscles were constantly tense and I used the muscles in my middle back or sides to bend - if I did any bending at all.

The 'ball point pen method' is pretty much exactly what the doctors tell you not to do when they advise 'pick up something by bending your knees and not your knees - not your back'. Well, I agree with them that if you are picking up something really heavy then you don't want to overload your back but, excuse me, your upper body is definately supposed to be lifted by healthy strong and flexible lower back muscles.

One more way of looking at the exercize is this: Think of the natural curve of your lower back pointing downward as you bend. You will feel this curve increase as you raise your upper body. You will feel this curve flatten as you lower your upper body. You will feel your lower back muscles expand and contract. You should not feel the muscles in your middle or upper back doing anything.

I hope this helps, good luck, Redou.

The reason why this works is because you are doing a flush on your lymphatics, taping the sides inside and out of your legs(tender points) this gets rid of junk in your trunk!

Replied by Anonymous

I don't believe that it's because of muscles, they don't suddenly become strong. As Teresa said, it's because of unlocking lymphatics, or because of fixing misplaced disks.

I think he means touching that spot 100 x's a day, by reaching down touching and coming back up and repeating, hopefully in a fluid and body aware motion (not bouncing the upper body up and down) The "tapping" these people are referring to for lymphatic flushing, is not the same thing... That works, but is not what he's talking about I think. YES your back muscles would so get stronger doing this - if you do as he said, just a little bit a time, small measurements in high quantity, a very good and conscious way to build the 'erector spinae' muscles. It's similar to an exercise called "Good Mornings" which you can do without weights (until you're strong enough to.)

Redou I have to say the ball point pen method of curing my back is working my first day doing it. Thank you so much for this info. Redou I had a lot of the same diagnoses as you did with my back doctor. Just saw my chiropractor yesterday for second day and same thing as you relief for a little while and then pain right back again. But today when I started doing the ball point pen method my back pain is so much relieved. I have been bending like you said doing my housework and adding those extra straight back bends without bending my knees and oh my gosh it works. I am in a happy shock cause now I can bend to load dishwasher and do my chores today for the first time in such a long time without excruciating back pain. You are a God send!

Could be you are stretching your hamstrings. Tight hamstrings can cause lower back pain. Clever to use the marks.

Replied by Alex

I don't believe this works because of unlocking lymphatics either. In this video, the physiotherapist is proposing a similar exercise for back pain (in the end of the video) and says it is very beneficial because of stretching the hamstrings which are attached at the low end of the pelvis.

Replied by Clay

I too have been dealt with back problems for years pretty much the same thing you described. And thank you for being so thorough and concise. You spent a lot of time describing and it is much appreciated. One thing you mentioned that stood out to me was the word "fear" and the statement that you felt nothing was damaged. I believe all of that wholeheartedly, especially fear. Dr John Sarno wrote books on getting rid of back pain and his method works for me. When you got rid of the fear according to him and had the belief that physically you are okay gradually start to make more movements physical and mental and then stay with that. He mentioned that anxiety based on internalized rage was a precursor to an episode I found that to be my case. His instructions were to own it and get rid of it, get rid of the fear and realize that you're mad as hell about something and that you are the one who is in control. I do have episodes every few years but I go back to that process and it works. As with anything we do I'm not saying it will work for everyone but it is definitely worth looking into.

I was diagnosed with arthritis in my back by a chiropractor. he said there was nothing that I could do about it. I investigated and found articles on Borax.... I started taking it every morning. it was scary at first, taking a cleaner.

on the fifth day, I got out of bed and wow! no pain! I've been taking it for 10 years, every day. no issues. Doctors and nurses are amazed when I tell them I take it daily. it works!

Boswellia for pain and inflammation

I was taking hyaluronic acid for my back pain,,, it worked for a few months and then stopped working. So after doing a little research on EC, I found a supplement called boswellia, which comes from the same tree as frankincense. I went to my favorite online supplement site and ordered the sw***on double strength boswellia capsules. Within a little over a week I started noticing less pain! I will continue using it and hope it doesn't wear off the way the HA did. I still use the stoppain roll on as well. Also read it has benefits for those with asthma.
