For many years I suffered from intense back pain which sometimes could not move. I practiced judo for more than 15 years of my life and at the end, back pain took me to all kinds of physical activity. A year ago my pains have disappeared thanks to this all-natural treatment I found on internet which anyone can do at home. At least this treatment cured me completely. Hopefully it will be helpful for you as it happened with me. www.backpain-relief-4-life.com

Lower back pain is something a lot of experience. I have found resting helps my pain go away. Sometimes, it can be caused by stress. Thankfully, there are all kinds of doctors out there to help out. http://www.back2ultimatehealth.com

Rolling on a form roller helps, an inversion table takes most of the pain away but the best fix is having a deep tissue massage to get the knots out of your muscles! Muscles tighten up with age where our bodies aren't design to be sitting down! As we age, we should be stretching more or else we suffer from back pain for example! I take Magnesium daily which helps relax my muscles as well!

The question we have to ask ourselves is where do we spend most of our time?  For me it's bed and work. 


For my home I got a new memory foam mattress from Bragada - ONLY after shopping around for a bit.  Found a good memory foam mattress guide here.  In my work I sit at a desk so I got a better supporting seat cushion (it pushed my back up 3").and it seems to be helping. Best though was the new gel mattress


Good luck!  Michael

Back pain is really annoying because the pain most of the time is consistent. But I believe most can be relieved if not treated. A very nice informative video here: http://dess.me/BPain
