Even 40 years after the car accident that almost ended my life, lower back pain is still is a constant, unwelcome presence. My favorite remedy? Cayenne pepper oil , daily yoga and long walks to keep my back muscles in shape. Pain is a personal thing. What works as an effective pain reliever for one person, does nothing for another. Chronic pain is a symptom of an underlying imbalance, and it is important to address that imbalance as well as try to find ways to lessen the pain. Herbal remedies often use herb infused oils and liniments to treat nerve pain of all kinds: lower back pain, sciatica, muscle aches, fibromyalgia and arthritic nerve pain. In addition to trying herbal remedies, you may also wish to explore acupuncture and professional massage therapy. Physical therapy techniques can be especially effective for nerve pain. The most important thing is to never give up, never surrender, and keep going until you find the your own personal answer.
