In the United States, joint pain is one of the leading causes of disability among adults and according to a study done by the Global Burden of Disease (GBD), back pain is the primary cause of disability worldwide. Joint and back pain is more common in older populations but people of all ages are affected by it.
It’s important to understand the causes, preventive measures, and possible treatment options for both back and joint pain. First, let’s talk about back pain.
The back is extremely prone to injury due to it’s complicated structure. Don’t assume that back pain is only caused by accidents or sports-related injuries. Even simple, everyday movements like putting on your shoe can cause back pain. Strained muscles, inflamed joints, sprained ligaments, and ruptured disks may all lead to a certain degree of pain; minor or severe. (1)
The best medicine for joint and back pain is prevention and consuming nutritious food. There are many ways to prevent or manage pain. Some of these include:
· Exercising regularly with proper form
· Making sure to balance physical activity with adequate rest
· Maintaining a healthy weight
· Using hot and cold therapy techniques
· Avoiding repetitive movement
· Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications
An all-natural alternative to anti-inflammatory medications is consuming nutritious food that helps fight inflammation. Turmeric and coconut oil are two of the most powerful anti-inflammatory superfoods.
A study done in 2004 compared the effects of different non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and compounds including aspirin, ibuprofen, sulindac, phenylbutazone, naproxen, indomethacin, diclofenac, resveratrol, curcumin (turmeric), dexamethasone, celecoxib and tamoxifen. According to the study, curcumin turned out to be even more potent than aspirin and ibuprofen. (2)
