Chronic back pain can be caused by sciatic nerve irritation which often results in numbness, weakness, and tingling of the lower extremities. Likewise, chronic pain can be the result of compression of any of the 33 individual vertebrae that make up the spinal column. The spinal column is stressed with every movement – sitting, standing, bending, and walking. Discs between the vertebrae are a gel-like substance that act as shock absorbers for the spine.


Any damage or irritation to the disccan result in pressure on the nerve endings of the spine, causing chronic back pain. Patients with chronic back pain often struggle for years with treatment after treatment – all with no reprieve from the pain.

Fortunately, there are home treatments that allow you to treat your back pain frequently, in the convenience of your own home. Withregular home therapies you can reduce your back pain by improving the elasticity in the muscles surrounding your spine. Flexible back muscles reduce the risk of over stretching the muscles as well as the amount of tension and referred pain you are suffering.
