Sadly, many people with back pain are ignored or discredited in medical settings. We want to do our best to make sure that “second chance” is a success but there are other natural remedies in addition to CBD.
I recommend using one of the CBD pain balms or roll on to use topically at the source of pain.
This way the person can experience immediate relief. I also recommend taking our full spectrum CBD oil sublingually.It can be taken once or several times a day as needed.
For many, CBD can be a “second chance” or a new light in what can appear to be a never-ending sea of pain and negativity. Sadly, many people with back pain are ignored or discredited in medical settings.
We want to do our best to make sure that “second chance” is a success! But there are other natural remedies in addition to CBD. If you are not familiar with the following for back pain, please take some time to check out these alternative treatments.
Acute pain: occurs locally at the source of injury. This will result in localized swelling and inflammation. This is common after “rolling your ankle” or other accident related injury. For acute injuries the 500 mg pain cream works best! Our roll on is also a great product for acute injuries. Your skin has an abundance of CB2 receptors, perhaps more than anywhere on the body.
CBD oil works by binding to these receptors and decreases pain locally. This means you are not just covering up the pain, but rather you are addressing the inflammation, unlike a bio-freeze style product. Personally, I find knee pain, elbow pain, ankle pain, and thumb/ hand pain respond excellent when the source of pain is arthritis. The 500mg cream seems to work instantly.
As a chiropractor physician, it is important for me to first understand the root cause of the individual’s pain. This can help determine my recommendations. I consider if the patient suffers from an autoimmune source of pain such as Lyme disease, MS, RA, fibromyalgia.
Does the patient suffer from soft tissue injury such as disc herniation, facet arthritis, sprain/ strain? In many cases, an oral oil may be necessary in conjunction with one of our CBD BioCare pain creams or the roll on.
Chronic back pain is an epidemic in our country. According to the Chiropractic Association, more than 31 million people are suffering with chronic back pain today. It’s a reality I see everyday in my chiropractic practice located in Buffalo, New York. In fact, that is why 80% of my patients come to see me.
In our offices we encourage patients to begin with CBD and no THC. THC can have some very unwanted side effects, especially for those suffering from depression and anxiety. Normally if the client is prescribed THC it is in a ratio of 4:1 or 1:1 (CBD:THC). CBD will dull the psychoactive effects of THC, for many who do not want a high, this is great news. CBD does not appear to decrease the levels of THC circulating in the blood, which is great news when people need THC to remain active but do not want a high.
At times people may find they need additional pain relief. That is when they want to seek a medical cannabis clinic. THC can have very positive effects on pain relief, mostly due to its direct interaction with CB receptors in the brain.
