Dealing with back pain has always been “my curse.” Waking up and having that slight tinge of back pain that never goes away. If you have dealt with back pain, you know that it affects your life in ways you can’t describe. I wanted to share my chronic back pain with others and how I deal with it.
It hurts to lie down
Chronic back pain means it hurts to lay down. The slightest twinge of movement means my back pain comes in full force.
It hurts to exercise
Ah, yes – one of the hardest parts of dealing with back pain has been that it hurts to exercise. I have never been able to have a full-on exercise regimen because I simply can’t do the exercise I want to do without it hurting.
Playing with the kids
I can deal with my back pain, until it starts getting personal. Not being able to play with my kids because it hurts is no fun at all. I love running, playing, and jumping with my kids but that is just not possible every day with chronic back pain.
Here’s how I have dealt with my backpain
Dealing with back pain hasn’t always been easy, but there are some things I have done to make it easier. Check them out –
I won't lie getting a massage is nice and relaxing but it lasts maybe 3-4 days if you are lucky and they aren't cheap! Plus I don't have time (or the money) to go in 2-3 times a week!
Being glued to a hot pad
Yes, being glued to a hot pad isn’t fun at all, but it has helped a little bit. However, I keep thinking, how can I live a full life when I’m glued to a hot pad?
I have taken my fair share of different aspirin to try and help, but of course it doesn’t help at all. I don’t really like putting things into my body medicine wise, but sometimes you’re desperate. Alas, this didn’t help at all.
Finally, the one thing that has worked!
Biofreeze® has been the one thing that has helped me with my chronic back pain. Since I have been looking for a pain relief alternative, Biofreeze® Pain Reliever works because they are non-systemic, non-narcotic, and contain no NSAIDs (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), salicylates or addictive substances.
I LOVE the roll on, I can get it right where I need it and there is no mess, no needing to wash my hands or anything. It's easy to keep in my purse and use on the go!
Since I don’t like putting things in or on my body due to not knowing what’s in them, I’m so glad I can trust Biofreeze® Pain Reliever products. They are available in both its signature green and colorless (dye-free) formats, are never tested on animals, and are produced in the United States.
