It is totally understandable that often, patients seek alternative routes to solving their back pain. Some try chiropractic, where the chiropractor manipulates the spine and other body parts. This can be a great pain reliever but often it only gives relief for a very limited amount of time (days or in a good case – weeks). Some people swear by acupuncture, which is supposed to be wonderful for back pain. Unfortunately, it doesn't always help and many people are just averse to having needles stuck in them. Yoga is a terrific method for reducing pain in the back and there are many yoga stretch video clips available online that can help people reduce their pain in a healthful and natural way.
