Is this hidden cause of back pain leaving you in agony?
You start to bring your driver back on that long par 5, and you can already feel the twinge in your lower back.
You sunk that long 20-foot putt (nice read, by the way!) but you can barely bend down to retrieve your ball from the hole.
You’ve been in back agony for years, and now it hurts so much to golf that you’ve even started canceling rounds. You thought you were doing everything right: stretching, exercise, chiropractic treatments, massage, acupuncture – but nothing has worked.
But it turns out your nagging back pain may be caused by a secret medical condition that you and your doctor might never spot.
You see, research shows that undiagnosed bacterial infections may be causing nearly half of lower back pain cases!
Believe it or not, it turns out that a significant number of people with chronic lower back pain have a hidden infection lurking in one or more of their back discs, especially athletes who may have already sustained an injury to the disc.
This infection triggers an inflammatory response in the spinal bones that surround the discs.
But that’s not all—it’s a domino effect that eventually leads to swelling in your spine. That swelling compresses nerves, resulting in pain – and lots of it.
Why an infection occurs in the damaged disc is unclear, but before reaching for those harsh antibiotics, try some non-invasive natural therapies first.
Natural anti-inflammatories such as MSM, Devil’s Claw, turmeric, and proteolytic enzymes may help. And disc-rebuilding nutrients such as glucosamine and collagen are often quite effective.
If you find that you’ve tried everything and you’re still in pain, natural antimicrobial agents such as intravenous vitamin C, ozone, and hydrogen peroxide could bring you the relief you’re looking for without harsh antibiotic side effects.
Many patients receiving intravenous vitamin C find it helps relieve their lower back pain. This may be due to the antimicrobial effect of the vitamin C as it penetrates the bloodstream.
Immune system-enhancing herbs such as astragalus and beta glucans could be helpful as well.
Antibiotics should only be considered as a last resort. They wipe out the good bacteria in your stomach along with the bad, which can leave you with indigestion or even diarrhea.
Who wants to deal with that while they’re trying to putt?
If you and your doctor do decide on a course of antibiotic therapy, add a probiotic to the mix to keep your belly bugs balanced and healthy.
To your health,
