I take painkillers for my back pain, the best known this findrxonline are vicodin and hydrocodone are opiates to treat my illness, so I recommend always do the necessary consultation to avoid taking medications or analgesics that do not help overcome the pain.

Reflexology can help relieve back pain! It's not exactly a foot massage though. Reflexology is a bodywork modality where thumb and finger pressure on specific parts of the body is used to balance the body, mind and spirit. I think of it as a type of moving acupressure.

Reflexology can provide relief for a number of conditions including back pain, sciatica, headaches, sinus problems, digestive disorders, painful menses, and fibromyalgia. Research has also shown reflexology to lower blood pressure and to help increase fertility. It also has the effect of relaxing the nervous system which alleviates general stress and anxiety.

Like Kristen, I have had tremendous results relieving both chronic and acute back pain with reflex massage, and it usually occurs in just minutes. Having done this hundreds of times over 30 years, I still get a kick out of the expression on my client's face when I ask them to test their back and the pain is gone or greatly reduced. Their suprise is magnified by their scepticism before we start. They simply cannot believe it works so quickly and effectively.

Yes, foot refloxology is really beneficial in providing relief from various body pains. My aunt has been getting this massage therapy from Belle Vie Day Spa and says it has really provided respite from pain in the legs.

Reflexology increases blood flow to specific regions in our body. better blood flow means more oxygen utilization, anything that has more oxygen functions better. stimulating certain foot reflex points on a regular bases, everyday e.g. while you brush your teeth, will eliminate these little aches and pains that are starting to occur when we get older. Therefore, Reflexology is actually a very preventive method our youth should know about. There have been studies in Austria showing scientific results that these specific reflex points actually really do work.

The kind of lifestyle that you have is also a contributing factor for your back pain. Sitting a lot and not exercising can cause this condition. Your back pain will also worsen if you lift heavy objects or slouch while you sit at your desk.

I agree!

For the doubters and/or hardcore empiricists out there, the mechanism by which reflexology can address chronic back pain is as follows (gate control theory): acupressure of the right zones, or even the wrong ones as the thoery postulates, stimulate non-nociceptive fibers that inhibit the uptake of substance P (a critical piece of the pain pathway). What's one thing that stimulates these non-nociceptive fibers? Fine touch - bingo, reflexology. Find out more at
