Millions of people around the world seek back pain relief in a number of different ways. Visiting a medical professional such as a chiropractor is always a good decision for chronic back pain issues, but there are some simple methods that may relieve your back pain that you can try at home. Let's explore some of these tips in more depth. 


Endorphins are naturally produced by your body and can be released through certain activities. These hormones can be more powerful than any pain medication on the market, and they are easy to come by if you know what to do. When endorphins are released in your body they block pain signals in the brain, they also alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression. Here are some ways that you can release your body's endorphins: 

  • Aerobic exercise 
  • Meditation 
  • Laughter 
  • Eating dark chocolate 
  • Socializing 

These are just a few ways you can release your body's endorphins, but there are also many more ways to do this. 

Quality Sleep 

Lack of quality sleep exacerbates back pain, but in a catch-22 of sorts, patients with back pain often find it hard to get quality sleep. So what do you do? There are some ways you can work towards getting better sleep and in turn relieving your back pain. For better sleep a lot of patients have used: 

  • Sleep medication 
  • Proper diet 
  • Removing caffeine from the daily routines 
  • Psychological and relaxation exercises 
  • Exercising 
  • Keeping a journal of your worries 

With a better nights sleep comes a better feeling back. Endorphins and better sleeping habits could be the solution to a better feeling back. Contact us at (859)-264-1140 to learn more about back pain and what your options are.
