Hi, I'm Dr. Miller with a quick tip to relieve back pain naturally. There's no pain like back pain, and millions suffer from it daily. The question is, what can be done to relieve it other than loading up on aspirin? In a large national survey participants were asked what they did to relieve an aching back. The top six responses were, seeing a chiropractor, massage, acupuncture, herbal therapy, relaxation training and eastern based stretching exercise like yoga and tai chi.

What's impressive is that 60% of the people who had used one of these therapies in the previous year, said that it brought them a great deal of relief. Those who use more than one of these therapies have the best results. Of course you'll want to check with your doctor before trying any new form of exercise or pain relief therapy.
