A sore back is a very common and painful problem for many people. A sore back can keep you from doing the things you love, such as sports, playing with your kids or pets, or exercising. Back pain is regarded as the 5th most common reason for visits to a doctor in the U.S.
If you have a sore back, the most likely reason for it is that you've strained muscles (usually the erector spinae) in your back– this strain is largely caused by either not warming up properly before exercise, and/or overstraining your back during exercise. For example, "lifting with your knees" is a safer method of lifting heavy objects, as "lifting with your back" can cause strained back muscles. Other causes of back pain might include injury or a failed back surgery.
Straining your back can only take a split second, but it may take days or even weeks to return to normal. Generally, a strained back isn't a serious injury, but it definitely results in serious pain. When back muscles become torn or strained, inflammation spreads through the muscles- this can make your back feel like it's on fire!
It's very important to see your doctor and a physical therapist for a clear diagnosis and treatment plan for your aching back. Not every treatment may be right for your condition.
If you're looking for safe, effective, non-invasive, non-addictive relief from back pain with no side effects, you've come to the right place! We recommend the following top-of-the-line products, all of which can be ordered from MendMeShop.com:
The Personal Therapeutic Ultrasound - This is a hand-held, easy to use, home ultrasound treatment unit, similar to the one that your physical therapist might have. This innovative technology can be used to treat any soft tissue injury, including strained back muscles! The unit emits high frequency ultrasound waves, which gently heat and stimulate the tissue of the area you’re treating. The body's natural response to this is to send additional oxygen and nutrient rich blood (a process known as homeostasis, or the body trying to maintain equilibrium within itself). This oxygen and nutrient rich blood is essential to heal an injury and recover faster. For more information on Personal Therapeutic Ultrasound, please visit our Ultrasound Information page.
The "Freezie" Cold Compression Wrap
The most basic method of treating inflammation and pain is the RICE formula (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation). In fact, this simple formula is the gold standard- it is even recommended by leading hospitals and clinics, including the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic. Find out for yourself what these medical specialists already know- use our outstanding "Freezie" Cold Compression Wraps to experience the benefits of this tried and true method. Our wraps are the best combination brace and cold pack for treating many different types of injury, from a strained back to sciatica. They offer compression, support and cold therapy, all at the same time! The "Freezie" Cold Compression Wrap is the best of its kind available! For more information about the "Freezie" Wrap, please visit our "Freezie" Wrap Information page.
The Inferno Wrap - This is another innovative pain relief device available from MendMeShop. This device is similar to the Personal Therapeutic Ultrasound unit, except that it uses infrared waves instead of ultrasound waves. This device basically works like a heating pad, and can be safely used anywhere on the body. The infrared waves it emits work like ultrasound waves, by gently heating and massaging the tissues in the treated area. The body’s natural response to this is to send additional oxygen and nutrient rich blood (a process known as “homeostasis”, or the body trying to maintain equilibrium within itself). This oxygen and nutrient rich blood is essential to heal an injury and recover faster. For more information about Inferno Wraps, please visit our Inferno Wrap Information page.
Even though these products are safe, effective, non-invasive and non-addictive, remember to always consult your doctor and/or physiotherapist before using any of these fine products to make sure that they're right for you and your condition.
