Hitachi Magic Wand Fixes your Back Pain: Causes and Treatments
Back pain can be as slight as a dull ache or as serious as stabbing pains and an inability to stand upright. Chances are you’ll have some kind of back pain at least once in your lifetime. Back pain is among the top reasons people take a day off work or see a doctor, according to the Mayo Clinic. Most causes of back pain can be treated with simple home remedies, such as the Hitachi Magic Wand massager and the awesome magic wand attachments but it’s also important to know when you should seek help from a doctor.
Your back is made up of many muscles, bones, joints, and ligaments. As a result, the direct cause of your back pain can be difficult to decipher. Some common causes of back pain are muscle strains, ligament sprains and ruptured discs, according to the American Chiropractic Association. Underlying causes include sports injuries, awkward posture, obesity, arthritis, disc degeneration, abnormal spine curvature, stress, and poor body mechanics. Less commonly, diseases such as kidney stones, blood clots and spine cancer can lead to back pain.
In most cases, back pain will go away within a few weeks if you take it easy and try some at-home remedies. Your first step should be to cut back on normal physical activity to reduce swelling. Especially avoid doing any heavy lifting, twisting and high-intensity exercises such as running. However, avoid staying in bed for more than a day or two, or else you risk slowing down your recovery. During rest, try lying down in a fetal position with a pillow or a rolled up towel between your knees and start using your Hitachi Magic Wand on your sore area for pain relief. If lying on your back feels better, keep a bolster under your knees to keep you back in a more neutral position. Taking over-the-counter pain relievers such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen can also help in the interim, but read the bottle carefully to ensure that you don’t overdose. An ice pack and a heating pad can reduce pain, too. Generally, applying ice in the first two to three days helps reduce inflammation and applying heat after that can help soothe your back. However, you may discover through trial and error that applying heat or ice in other intervals is more comfortable.

Additionally, let your doctor know if the pain spreads down at least one leg, if you suddenly experience bladder or bowel problems, if you feel throbbing and pain in your abdomen, if at least one leg is tingly or numb, or if you also have unexplained weight loss or fever. Moreover, see a doctor sooner than later if you have a history of alcohol abuse, drug abuse, cancer, or osteoporosis.
