Limitless Living: Back-Pain’s Opioid-Free Era

Back pain is a common condition that can significantly impact a person’s quality of life.

While there are several treatment options available, many people are turning to non-opioid options that can help to reduce pain and inflammation without the risk of addiction or other side effects associated with opioid painkillers.

One promising combination of natural substances for the treatment of back pain is Magnesium Bisglycinate, L-theanine, ®Affron (Saffron Extract), and Rhodiola Rosea Extract. This combination has been shown to work together to reduce inflammation, calm the nervous system, and promote natural healing.

The opioid-free alternatives

Magnesium is an essential mineral that is involved in over 300 biochemical reactions in the body. It is important for maintaining healthy nerve and muscle function, and can also help to reduce inflammation. Magnesium Bisglycinate is a highly absorbable form of magnesium that has been shown to be effective in reducing back pain and inflammation.

L-theanine is an amino acid that is found in green tea. It has been found to have a calming effect on the nervous system, and can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Stress and anxiety can often exacerbate back pain, so the calming effects of L-theanine can be particularly beneficial for people with this condition.

®Affron is derived from the flower of the Crocus sativus plant. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat a variety of conditions, including pain and inflammation. Recent studies have found that saffron extract can help to reduce pain and inflammation in people with osteoarthritis, and it may also be effective in reducing back pain.

Rhodiola Rosea Extract is an adaptogenic herb that has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to help the body adapt to stress. It has been found to have a variety of health benefits, including reducing inflammation and improving cognitive function. Studies have also shown that Rhodiola Rosea Extract can help to reduce pain in people with chronic low back pain.

Taken together as a supplement, like our Healthlab Relax Formula, these natural substances can help to reduce pain and inflammation, calm the nervous system, and promote natural healing. They can be taken in supplement form, and are generally considered safe for most people. However, it is important to talk to your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen.

The active alternatives

In addition to these natural substances, there are other active non-opioid options that can help to treat back pain.
Here are four things that can help you recover from chronic or acute chronic back-pain:

1. Exercise: Regular exercise can help to strengthen the muscles in your back and reduce the risk of future injury. Low-impact exercises like walking, swimming, functional training and pilates are particularly helpful for people with back pain.

2. Heat And Cold Therapy: Applying heat or cold to the affected area can help to reduce pain and inflammation. You can use a heating pad, hot water bottle, or warm towel for heat therapy, and a bag of ice or frozen peas for cold therapy.

3. Physiotherapy/Manual Therapy: Medical Massage can help to relax the muscles in your back and reduce tension. It can also help to improve circulation and promote natural healing. Read more about how Club Health utilises Physiotherapy for pain management and recovery here.
