You can always turn to natural, herbal remedies to soften your back pain. You could try devil's claw, an African herb that has a long history of medical use and has been shown in recent research to ease chronic lower-back pain. Doctors have also found omega-3 fish oil supplements and daily consumption of anti-inflammatory spices, like turmeric and ginger, to be helpful as well. As always, consult your doctor or certified naturopath about which ones will address your back pain the best.
