What natural treatments are available for low back pain? Treatment will depend on the underlying cause(s)/condition(s) that are contributing to a patient’s low back pain. Some of the main treatment options include:

  • Anti-inflammatory agents. Specific vitamins/nutrients and herbal supplements can reduce inflammation and thus pain
  • Trigger point injections. Active trigger points are focal areas of tension in muscles that contribute to myofascial pain syndromes. Trigger point injections provide quick pain relief and also contribute to long-term improvement
  • Laser therapy. Cold lasers and hot lasers can be used to increase mitochondrial ATP production which supports healing of injured tissue.
  • Acupuncture. Decreases inflammation and improves circulation to affected areas
  • Massage. Decreases muscle tension and improves circulation to affected areas
  • Chiropractic. Correcting vertebral subluxations improves the flow of spinal fluid
  • Craniosacral therapy. Improves the flow of cerebrospinal fluid
