Yet another cause of back pain is Arthritis. The word “arthro” refers to joints and “itis” means inflammation. Arthritic changes can give rise to bone spurs in the spine. These spurs occur especially in the cervical (neck) vertebrae, often causing neck pain which radiates to the shoulder, scapular (shoulder blade) region, arm or hands.
There are supplements that can be taken to reduce inflammation, such as Curcumin, Omega 3s, and CBD oil, among others. Certainly an alkalizing diet full of colorful vegetables and fruits helps pull down inflammation. Also, the LED light therapy that I do at Living Well Dallas is very effective for reducing inflammation due to arthritis.
