Ever heard anyone say ďMy lumbago is killing me!Ē?

I used to hear my grandpa say it all the time. I thought it was something menacing in his garage, because he would always say it after working in his garage.

I sure was surprised many years later to find out that lumbago is a term used to describe any persistent or recurrent lower back pain. Now that my lumbago kills me quite often too...I finally know what Grandpa was talking about.

Lumbago (lower back pain) may vary in severity from a dull ache to severe pain; often it is experienced as a sudden excruciating pain on bending, on standing up from sitting, on twisting round, or on lifting heavy objects.

Lumbago is one of the most commonly reported complaints and it generally becomes more frequent with age.

Here are some natural back pain treatments to ease your lower back pain:

Herbs

  • COMFREY and SAINT JOHNíS WORT: Rub a little oil made from comfrey or SJW into the affected area to relieve pain.
  • JAMACIAN DOGWOOD, SAINT JOHNíS WORT, VERAIN, and WHITE WILLOW: These types of natural remedies for back pain reduce inflammation and relieve lower back pain.

Essential Oils

  • ROSEMARY, & THYME:These two herbs are wonderful for the back. Relax in a hot bath with a combination of these oils to relieve lower back pain.
  • JUNIPER, OREGANO, PINE, & ROSEMARY: Make poultice with one or more of these oils to ease inflammation and pain.

Traditional Home Remedies and Natural Solutions

  • SQUAT: For chronic lower back pain, try squatting for 5 minutes a day. By using natural remedies for back pain like this, you can experience consistent improvement.

    Place your feet about hip-width apart and slowly drop to a full squat, resting your weight on your heels. Rest your arms on your knees, though you might have to use them to keep your balance until you become accustomed to the position. Gradually work your way up to 5 minutes a day.

  • WALK: Home back pain relief may be as simple as taking a walk. A 15 to 30 minute walk promotes healing by encouraging blood to circulate all through the vertebrae and lower torso.

    These natural back pain treatments can provide surprisingly quick cure for lumbar back pain. We encourage you to spend more time on our site researching natural ways to treat common health concerns.
