This is my go to site for all things natural cures. It's an awesome site. Was having lower back pain for a week now. Even took my heating pad to work and used it almost all day. Definitely helped, but the pain kept lingering. So I came to good ole EC for help. I rubbed my back with coconut oil and OMG, my pain was gone! I am dumbfounded!! I thought that people were just saying that. How could that be true? But trust me, it's so true. Thank you EC for all your wisdom.

Re: Coccyx Pain

I woke up with terrible back pain a few days ago. Taking paracetamol (like acetaminophen) and ibuprofen eased it enough to allow me to stiffly walk out of the house.

I was doubtful about the coconut oil cure, but tried it anyway since I had some in the house. Like many others, the pain went away almost instantly. I felt about 70-80% better within the hour, and it got better after two hours. I need to reapply it before sleeping, but it works very well. I still feel some stiffness, but I can walk and bend a lot.

I also took a bath using magnesium flakes, which helped a lot.

I'm amazed that coconut oil worked, but it did. I had horrible back pain after doing the plank for 3 minutes which was 30 seconds longer than I should have done). I paid the price for my competitiveness and my back got so stiff and painful had been that way for well over a week. After finding this remedy on Earth Clinic I'm delighted to report that the pain has eased and my back feels looser. There is still stiffness and some pain, but it is way better and it seemed to work almost instantly. Thank you Earth Clinic!

After being up all night with pulled back muscle, I ended up calling out of work. Couldn't get out of bed without excruciating pain. Muscle relaxers did nothing. Saw your posts about coconut oil and thought I'd give it a try. Wow! Within a few minutes I could move around. This is now my new remedy for back pain. Love it!

I'd used coconut oil on my reluctant husband about a year ago and his back pain, much to our surprise, went away instantly. I tried it today, finally, on myself and within 5 minutes -- pain is gone. Really! Gone!

I'm now doing research as to why this works! It's a miracle -- that pain was starting to bother me.

For the past three days my husband has been complaining of back pain. I have asked several times to allow me to apply coconut oil to his back. "I don't want my back to be greasy." He said. This morning I finally managed to get him to allow me to rub some on his back. It absorbed into his skin leaving no residue. I also opened a can of coconut milk and mixed it with ginger ale for him to drink. I left at approximately 7:00 this morning to get my mother some emergency groceries. We had bad weather moving into Oklahoma City and she had no food in the house. When I walked in the house about an 1 1/2 hours later he was asleep. When he woke up three hours later I could tell the grimace was gone from his face. "How do you feel?" I asked. He gave me the so-so hand, but I could tell he was doing a lot better. So much that half an hour later he went outside and scraped the ice off his car! Once again EC has come to the rescue. I hope the effects last. I will come back and update if there are any changes.

I use the extra virgin coconut every day, for skin, cooking and back pain. I also take 1 TB a day. Good luck.

I was ready to destroy you with a pissed off response, but 10-15 sec later.... whoa?!!! I don't know what is going on, or how it happens, or if it's a placebo effect, but the pain went away.

I started taking about a couple tablespoons at the start and end of the day. The pain isn't totally gone, but it dropped significantly (maybe 8 to a 4). I tried to make it hurt because I couldn't believe it, I succeeded, but it wasn't quite as painful pre coconut oil. I rubbed more on and pain dropped again. I really don't know how it works, but I'm just thankful. 10-15 seconds, I can't believe it.

I have had back pain for several years, of course sometimes worse than others. I was just looking through ec and ran across coconut oil for back pain. Mine is constant enough I toss and turn all night, and can't sit in same position for more than few minutes. I thought why not try the co even though I was skeptical I really had nothing to lose. I applied to my lower back before bed and sure enough pain eased off tremendously, probably 70-80%, I couldn't believe it. Next three nights I applied coconut oil before bed and I haven't tossed and turned at all. I don't know why it worked for me and am curious as to how. I don't know long term results but am definitley satisfied with the short term.

I was pleasantly surprised it worked! Every winter I suffer with lower back pain. I read about the coconut oil and had some so I thought well I'll try it (I didn't expect it to work) I was so surprised my back pain was gone within minutes I mean no pain! this is wonderful lol. I just took about a small amount maybe teaspoon full in my hand and rubbed it on my back...now I'm a happy camper! Thanks for the tip. Penny in TN

I have been having lower back pain for the last 4 days that was very aggrevating and I was walking bent over with a shuffling motion. I read that Coconut Oil could possible be a treatment. I purchase the liquid Coconut Oil in the vitamin section of the local Wal Mart. Ureka!! Within 10 seconds after applying a liberal portion of the Coconut oil, the pain was simple gone. This was a simple miracle. I also took 250 mg of Magnesium and a teaspoon of Baking Soda in water. Please, Please, pass this on to someone you know that has pain.

Coconut oil is wonderful for back pain! I hurt my back the day before leaving for vacation and worried all morning about it. I tried using the heating pad, the massager, taking some ibuprofren (my last resort), but nothing helped. A few hours later, I gave my dog a treat with coconut oil on it (which she loves) and as I was scooping it out, I took a bit of the coconut oil for myself. About 10 minutes later, I felt almost no pain and I began to wonder why. Could it be the coconut oil? I checked it out online and found some people who said they had success with it for back pain, so I took more. I am so pleased with how good I feel and how quickly it worked! I am taking it on my trip with me now and will always do so in the future!

Coconut Oil for back pain. I was in severe back pain for 6 days. I also had the flu for the first time. Today, I decided to look on earth clinic for something, anything that would make me back feel better. I had the heating pad on my back every day. I would alternate with ice packs. The ice packs helped a little. I saw that someone ate coconut cookies and it made their back feel better. I have coconut oil. Right away a took a nice amount in my hand and rubbed in my lower back and within 10 minutes the pain was gone. I've had the cure for my pain here the whole time. I also took 2 pain pills but I think the coconut oil worked right away. I'm feel so much better. I love this site!!!!!
