If you suffer from lower back pain, you've probably tried a bunch of different treatments to get relief. But there's one treatment that very few doctors know about — and very few people have ever tried. That's because there's a surprising cause of back pain that most people never consider.
This cause of lower back pain is very common and almost completely overlooked. The reason so many of us overlook this cause is that we tend to think that back pain is injury related. In other words, we think we do something to our spine or the muscles that support the spine. However, there's another reason your lower back muscles can hurt. It's because your adrenal glands, which support those muscles, are over stressed.
That might surprise you, but consider this. Your adrenals are those walnut-sized endocrine glands that sit right on top of your kidneys. They are your body's first line of defense against stress. They produce hormones, such as cortisol and adrenaline, and keep your body's hormones in balance.
But your adrenals can become too fatigued from overwork, and not produce enough of these hormones to keep you in balance. When this happens, your adrenals begin to send out signals that you need to relieve your stress levels. These signals can include dizziness when you stand up or change positions quickly, headaches across the forehead, bright lights bother your eyes, your eyelids twitch, and even plantar fasciitis (pain in your heel). And another signal they can send out is lower back pain.

Here's why your back might hurt if your adrenals are getting fatigued. All of the muscles through your pelvis area, including your hamstrings, your groin muscles, and the sartorius (the longest muscle in your body going from the top of your pelvis to the inside of your knee), are all needed for a healthy back. And they all are supported by your adrenal glands. When your adrenals become fatigued, they can't supply these muscles with the support they need. So they become weak and can't support your back properly.
Once these muscles have lost their ability to support your back, you are at a greater risk for back injury. And you don't have to do much to injure your back. In fact, when someone "throws their back out" suddenly or wakes up with back pain out of the blue, it's usually because they have fatigued adrenals that aren't supporting their muscles adequately. What's more, the problem has been building up for some time.
So if you want to beat back pain, it's highly probable that the first place you need to start is by supporting your adrenal glands and getting them in top shape. Once they're healthy, you can build your muscles back up and help your back heal. But how can you help heal your adrenals? It's a lot easier than you might think.
Obviously, you need to lower the stress in your life. Then you need to boost your intake of nutrients that support your adrenals. Advanced Bionutritionals developed Advanced Adrenal Factor with the nutrients you need to do just that. Once your adrenals are healthy, that massage, chiropractic treatment, or Prolozone®, will be even more effective at eliminating your back pain.
