Managing Fibroid Back Pain Naturally

Fibroids and back pain often go hand-in-hand and for some women the discomfort can be relentless. For others, it varies in intensity depending on the stage of the menstrual cycle. There are a number of techniques which can be used for managing fibroid back pain naturally and these should help give some relief.

You may feel that you do not want to go through invasive surgery or take hormonal treatments to deal with your fibroids, but did you realize that there are completely natural methods which will not only help to relieve the pain caused by fibroids but will, in a short space of time, eliminate your fibroids completely, putting them firmly in your past!

Very often fibroid back pain begins to happen when the fibroids have grown particularly large, filling the uterine cavity although smaller fibroids can also cause significant back pain if they are located so that they press on a nerve or other internal organs.

Managing fibroid back pain naturally can be achieved by a number of simple techniques. Firstly, heat therapy is often effective-try applying a hot water bottle or heat pad on the affected area. Many women also find that a warm bath helps. Stretching your lower back by arching it can sometimes relieve pain as can keeping your legs elevated. Lastly, you can try lying on your back with a pillow under your slightly bent knees.

Of course, managing fibroid back pain is about obtaining symptomatic relief and not curing your fibroids. If you prefer using natural treatments, then these can be successfully used to eliminate your fibroids. However, this is not a quick-fix approach and you must be prepared to make significant lifestyle and dietary changes.
