Drinking coffee will help relieve back pain. New medical studies showed caffeine in coffee blocks the chemical adenosine. Adenosine tightens your back muscles. By drinking coffee, you are preventing that from happening and helping your muscles stay flexible.

Sometimes when suffering from back pain, we all need a little help. You should not feel ashamed asking for help when you need something to be lifted, or when you need some cleaning around your home. After all, you don’t want to make a back injury worse by putting your back out whilst trying to dust door frames or move unwieldy furniture.
Add some B12 to your diet. If you experience any numbness or tingling after taking a B12 tablet, inhaled nasal spray or injection, consult your doctor immediately.
