Herbs for Back Pain

Lower back pain is a very common affliction. As the NIH’s Back Pain Fact Sheet observes:

About 80 percent of adults experience low back pain at some point in their lifetimes. It is the most common cause of job-related disability and a leading contributor to missed work days. In a large survey, more than a quarter of adults reported experiencing low back pain during the past 3 months.


Mullein root is very useful in cases of low back pain, especially when due to misalignment.

While many of the primary causes of back pain are related to alignment, posture, and movement habits – and we’ll talk briefly about addressing them during this class – it’s just as common, in our experience, that fear plays a major role in the development of this problem, especially as it becomes chronic.

Herbs can help. They might be employed to support the healing of injured muscles and the restoration of healthy connective tissues, or to provide direct relief from pain. They can also, though, help to change habits of activity and emotion that contribute to the ongoing struggle with back pain. Come learn how!
