Global Burden of Backpain


Back Pain relief experience - Henry Lahore, admin of VitaminDWiki, Dec 2014

The following combination worked great - pain for only 3 days instead of the typical 10 days
Pain went from 8 ==> 3 on this visual scale

Back pain relief is probably due to one or more of the following
1) Vitamin D - 50,000 IU - sublingual to get it to bloodstream in a few hours instead of 12-20 hours
2) Magnesium Chloride - both topical twice a day and internal - I used 1 teaspoon (160 ml) every two hours, total ~ 800 mg/day
         Previously had been taking about 50 mg/day ( realized after)
          note: horses get 1600 mg/day Mg continuously in their feed

3) Vitamin C - 500 mg each hour

4) Omega-3
5) Back movement exercises while lying on the floor (Feldenkrais)

Update March 2016 - no back pain for more than 1 year

  • Vitamin D
  • Magnesium Chloride - internal
  • Feldenkrais weekly as a prevention
  • Twisting exercise for 5 minutes at the first sign of lower back pain
  • Also Omega-3 and Vitamin K - which may help

Update Nov 2021 - 75+ - back exercises eliminated new back pain

Lie face down on bed with legs extended beyond the bed
raise legs to level of bed using back muscles

Also: Relieve immediate back pain: MgCl mixed with DMSO and/or Arnica

UK review of Back Pain - asking for comments March 2016

  • The words Omega-3 and Magnesium do not exist in the PDF
  • "Studies have linked low vitamin D levels to back pain, but the evidence of causation not clear."
  • There have been no random controlled clinical trials for Back Pain and vitamin D so the UK was not interested
      Note: 13 years before this study it was found that 95% of back pain was reduced with vitamin D - not an RCT

Notes on Low back pain in recent times:less exercise, outdoors less (low vitamin D)

Clothes manual ==> washers and driers

Edging manual ==> powered edger
Weeds manual ==> chemical
Golf carry clubs while walk ==> electric cart
School walk ==> bus
Clean house sweep ==> vacuum


Pain relievers can extend duration of back pain - and sometimes turning it into a chronic pain - May 2022

Common Medications Can Prolong Back Pain, Study Says New York Times

  • "Guidelines from professional medical societies already say that people with back pain should start with nondrug treatments like exercise, physical therapy, heat or massage. Those measures turn out to be as effective as pain-suppressing drugs, without the same side effects."
  • Biobank stiudy found ...2,163 people with acute back pain, 461 of whom went on to have chronic pain. Those taking a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory had nearly double the chance of developing chronic back pain as those taking other drugs or no drugs, the researchers found.
  • "An analysis of randomized clinical trials found that these drugs had almost no benefit over placeboes in reducing low back pain."
