Back pain is 4th biggest global cause of disability: ages 50-69

Global Burden of Backpain


Back Pain relief experience - Henry Lahore, admin of VitaminDWiki, Dec 2014

The following combination worked great - pain for only 3 days instead of typical 10 days
Pain went from 8 ==> 3 on this visual scale

Back pain relief probably due to one or more of the following
1) Vitamin D - 50,000 IU - sublingual to get it to blood stream in a few hours instead of 12-20 hours
2) Magnesium Chloride - both topical twice a day and internal - I used 1 teaspoon (160 ml) every two hours, total ~ 800 mg/day
         Previously had been taking about 50 mg/day ( realized after)
          note: horses get 1600 mg/day Mg continuously in their feed

3) Vitamin C - 500 mg each hour

4) Omega-3
5) Back movement exercises while lying on the floor (Feldenkrais)

Update March 2016 - no back pain for more than 1 year

  • Vitamin D
  • Magnesium Chloride - internal
  • Feldenkrais weekly as a prevention
  • Twisting exercise for 5 minutes at first sign of lower back pain
  • Also Omega-3 and Vitamin K - which may help

UK review of Back Pain - asking for comments March 2016

  • The words Omega-3 and Magnesium do not exist in the PDF
  • "Studies have linked low vitamin D levels to back pain, but the evidence of causation not clear."
  • There have been no random controlled clinical trials for Back Pain and vitamin D so the UK was not interested
      Note: 13 years before this study it was found that 95% of back pain was reduced with vitamin D - not an RCT
