Upper back pain? Muscle spasms? Knots in your back? Here’s a “cool” natural self-help tool: Ice!
Ice can be a very good friend!
Lots of folks prefer heat. They like the way it feels more than they do ice (and I don’t blame them one bit!)
But as a pain relief tool for getting rid of muscle pain and “knots” in your back ice can’t be beat.
And here’s a tip: Don’t use it only where you have pain or knots.
Use ice on the front of your body, too.
Ice the sides of your neck, your upper chest and the fronts of your arms. You can ice your lower ribs, too.
That sounds pretty chilly but, you see, everything in your body is attached to everything else.
So, if the muscles in the front of your body are tight and short (and it’s very likely they are) they will pull you forward. That may be a primary cause of your back pain. Being collapsed forward or in a “forward head” position strains back muscles.
So try ice. You just may become quite fond of it!
