Back pain can interrupt your day or interfere with your plans.
In fact, there’s an 84 percent chance that you will develop low back pain in your lifetime.
But back pain isn’t always something you can ignore or wait for it to resolve on its own.
Thankfully, there are several ways to treat back pain at home.
These remedies include everything from herbs to massages.
Keep reading to see how you can ease your back pain.
1. Try oils and ointments to ease pain
There are plenty of pain rubs and ointments to help ease pain by blocking the sensation.
For example, creams with capsaicin can desensitize the pain channels in the affected area.
Other ingredients you can look for in topical creams include:
- ketoprofen (Diractin)
- ibuprofen (Nurofen or Dolgit)
- diclofenac (Voltaren)
- lidocaine (Lidoderm)
- Brazilian arnica
One study also saw decrease in pain when people applied lavender essential oil or ointments prepared with cayenne peppers with acupressure.
Some other brand standards include Icy Hot or Tiger Balm.
The effectiveness and side effects of each brand can vary from user to user.
You may experience skin irritation with certain brands.
Be sure to patch test (apply a small amount and wait 24 hours to see if you experience any side effects) before doing a complete application.
2. Massage can help sore or tense muscle
Gently massaging a sore or tense muscle is one of the most effective ways to loosen it up and relieve pain. One study found that massage therapy along with traditional treatment:
- reduces back pain
- improves back function
- lessens use of anti-inflammatory medications
- minimizes days in bed
They also found no difference between relaxation massages and structural massages, although structural massages tend to be more expensive.
Consider asking your partner or a close friend for a massage, if cost is an issue.
You can also ask them to use medicated ointment for extra pain relief.
3. What to eat to ease back pain
There’s minimal evidence that an alkaline diet improves low back pain.
An alkaline diet involves eating foods that are less acidic. Foods that have grown in more acidic soils may have less calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
People have also used herbs and supplements to reduce back pain.
One study found that the following herbs reduce back pain more than a placebo.
Devil’s claw: 50 or 100 mg daily
Willow bark: 120 or 240 mg daily
Always talk to your doctor before starting to use any herbal medicines.
They may interact with your current medications and cause unintended side effects.
4. Improve your posture to reduce back pain
Most of us spend a good part of our day sitting down, which may be more harmful than you realize.
You can minimize the impact by maintaining good posture.
Correct posture in a chair means having all the bones in your spine lined up neatly, like a stack of perfectly aligned blocks.
You should keep your feet flat on the floor and your computer keyboard within easy reach so you’re not leaning forward or slumping.
This is part of proper office ergonomics.
5. Adjust how you sleep
Spending a few nights on the floor with a pillow underneath your feet can really help your back, even if it might be a little trickier to stay sound asleep.
If you’re a side sleeper, putting a pillow between your knees can help your muscles relax more.
Sleeping on your stomach can be bad for your back.
If this is the only way you can fall asleep, the Mayo Clinic recommends placing a pillow under your lower abdomen and pelvis to prevent back strain.

Few month back around March/April 2018
I had a very bad blowout with my business that actually crashed my income and also yet again the loss of a huge set of my team members in the industry.
This will be the second major hit that would happen to me second year in a row.
This also led to a drastic drop in my income.
I practically almost came back to zero.
I wont bore you with the details but it was actually a frustrating time for me and also a huge lesson for me that woke me up later.
But still, that didn’t stop my vacation to both the USA in April and a vacation with my bae to Dubai in June.
Now why am I saying this?
You see, there are times in business,
some issues happen that is beyond your control.
Some things will happen that will make you want to quit.
Trust me, I was still going about doing my trainings and helping others in the business…
But deep within, the passion in me for the industry and business went down the drain.
Yes. I will say it as it is.
But then I still kept it on.
At a point in June. Even though people see me as the PROF.
I didn’t see myself as the PROF or expert in anything anymore.
I actually lost confidence in both myself and what i have grown to love and had passion for.
I realized that i needed to do something about it
and i had to REVALIDATE My capacity as a person and that led me to go on some sort of a REVENGE MISSION to see how I could get some things done with my own hands.
Look when a system fails you, Don’t blame the system.
BLAME YOURSELF,GET OVER WITH IT AND MOVE ON WITH EITHER THE SYSTEM OR YOU CHANGE IT. PERIOD.
I practically got my hands dirty and had to build something from scratch all for the sake of PROVING TO MYSELF THAT I STILL HAD IT IN ME.
Thanks to my brothers, team leaders and the love of my life that was there for me every step of the way and the countless prayers and encouragement from my love that never stops.
As a result of this issue. I decided to try something else and build it from the scratch
to prove to myself that I still had it in me. To prove it’s possible to come back again or get my flame reignited.
That other business I started from scratch few months back would be closing the year with an 8 figure Total Sales [in naira with 7 zeros] for a business that recently started in May/June 2018
While this was happening.
My love for the industry never died…
It was only the DRIVE AND PASSION that went cold
And i needed to build up that confidence in me to want to go all out as the PROF always does.
Thanks to those around me that really helped me.
Anyways, so something happened to me in the month of September.
I was browsing through facebook when I saw an audio book for sale that cost about $2 from Grant Cardone and I simply purchased it.
That small investment ‘The Millionaire Booklet‘ I made right there and then opened up my eyes and actually reignited the confidence in me to want to go all out yet again in the industry.
I was made to understand a concept called symbiotic relationship between businesses.
It further opened up my eyes to having to create multiple streams of income and NOT be the type of guy that jumps from one business to the other If you really want to build lasting wealth.
If a business has proven to work, no matter what might have happened, Stick your neck out to make it work again.
This audio recording is about 1.20 hours
And I actually listened to this recording about 10 times until I started even memorizing every single word.
I still listen to it at least Once Daily Right Now
That small investment changed everything in me.
Right after then, In the month of September, One of my new team members who recently joined the business with no prior expert knowledge of sales and marketing several months back sent me a message to inform me how she has now grown her business to having 10-15 customers per week that she services through knowledge she gained from my previous trainings I had given her.
She now wanted to grow to the next phase of the business for further growth.
That single message that she dropped me further gave me the validation I needed that I can still work with people to build a successful business.
I can still impact lives in the industry that I have always
had passion for.
I can still be a beacon to people who always look
forward to my post and notification on my social media.
That was when and the day i made the decision to actually turbo boost my network marketing business again even if it meant starting from scratch.
I called and messaged my leaders.
Thanks to you all truly… I love you all Big Time..
These people are hardcore leaders who are truly passionate about the welfare and growth of their team members.
I was able to find my Drive
I was able to find my Confidence
I was able to find back my core WHY of starting in the first place.
Though right now, with a much more better experience of how to deal with things and issues that has made me thicker.
Even my brother confirmed that he does not recognize the person I have become. Well Don’t blame me bro… I just got thicker.
Though the other business i started has done virtually well,
in fact, it has actually taught me so many lessons and how to become a better leader, teacher and action taker.
And right now we are looking forward to 10x that company in the year 2019 with various partnerships and deals currently going on.
While there are already systems in place to help further build that business to put things in place.
Am also working to build back from scratch my First Love, My Sugar Pie My darling bae and the special delicacy that opened my eyes to a life of possibility via this same industry…
My First Business In The Network Marketing Industry.
And This month of October proved to be a very interesting month for me as I was able to activate so many things that
helped me achieve some good level of result in my first love business.
Yeah… The Prof is actually Back, Better And Improved
To the Very Few Team Members that are still with me.
I will like to say a special thanks to you because you are the ones that took my trainings and used it to get some good results in the business that made me to believe back in myself and have the drive of wanting to help much more people.
And to my team leaders and mentors.
I really appreciate the fact that you always believed in me and my capacity as a person.
And to myself, I appreciate myself that I was able to get back my confidence, Able to prove to myself that I have all it takes to crush it and looking forward to definitely growing a bigger GLOBAL business.
And to those that are just looking and wondering what I have
been up to and thinking that am already done.
Sorry to burst your bubble. It Ain’t Over yet.
I Never truly stopped hustling. Its in my blood
Looking forward to working more with people and helping you to overcome whatever challenges that you might be facing.
I might probably organize a webinar soon but right now. Click here to see my MENTORSHIP PAGE
Let me just savour this new me and get set for a wonderful blast and experience with all those that i would be working with and training.
I remain proudly
P.S: Each month, i will be taking a small sect of people that are serious about building their business. The goal is to help you build a stable business in 3 months. This Post is never about having an influx of people to join me immediately. The Goal is having Just A Few People Committed to have us build something that they can appreciate and be thankful for, Just like the lady who now makes at least N100k weekly aside her commission business that she’s currently building. If it does not work out after 3 months of putting intense work that makes you tell yourself that I gave it my all, then you should definitely QUIT. No hard feelings.
