You may wish to take a look at an article we just posted dealing with pain, and back and neck pain in particular. I've had to deal with some big time back and neck pain and I have a variety of tactics that have helped. Here it is:
Everyone is different, but homeopothy never helped me. I learned that I had to get to the root cause of the pain and for me, this never made the slightest dent.
I have also heard some things about the magpulser and pain relief. I intend to get one down the road.
I feel the post above ours mentioning the book by Sarno is also really worth persuing. I have had to deal with back pain from multiple angles, and this book is one of them that the article talks about. Also, I've had much better success with osteopathic adjustments as opposed to chiropractic. Again, everyone's different.
