Hi all, I'm very new to this, but I need help. I'm trying to find a way to help heal my husband's back pain. He's had 2 failed back surgeries and the pain never goes away. The last few days have been intense and for the first time I was afraid he would do something stupid. I need advice please!
What can be done depends a great deal on what is happening/what is causing the issue. If the problem has been properly diagnosed, it may help if those details can be included. (IE; a slipped or damaged disk, nerve damage, sciatica, torn ligament or muscle, etc.
So far the best I can recommend is doing what you can to enhance nutrition and get rid of body toxins. Helping the body have a healthy environment will help it in healing itself. Also, if you can get a hold of the doctors or a chiropractor to consult that would be a good idea. They should be able to provide you with some examples of safe, gentle stretches that might help keep the back mobile and loosen it up a bit. You could also ask the doctors about available supplements that might help, and appropriate dosing. (for example Glucosamine with chondroitin)
As far as other healing options, Reiki may help by relieving the tension of the muscles in the affected area, and furthering that assistance in the body healing itself as well. In the end both of you will want to do what you can to promote a proactive mentality and outlook. Action follows thought after-all. A positive outlook helps keep you both inspired to take the best actions you can to promote the healing actions of the surgeries, and to be diligent in making sure you follow the recovery regimens and overall body health to make the efforts as successful as possible.
