What’s The Best CBD Oil?

Many of you have likely heard of CBD. Cannabidiol, or CBD for short, is getting a lot of attention in the media and on social media, but rightfully so. The hemp-based compound offers many of the same therapeutic benefits as medical marijuana, but without any psychoactive effects. Using CBD hemp oil for pain is an effective alternative to harsh prescription drugs. Taylor MD Formulations specializes in making the best hemp derived CBD oil in the United States, 100% THC free.

What Pain Issues Can CBD Oil Help With?

One of the great things about cannabidiol is that it can help with a number of different conditions, such as joint pain, muscle pain and insomnia. It can also help you with anxiety and stress. CBD can also reduce neuropathic pain and discomfort associated with difficult to treat pain conditions such as fibromyalgia.

Though cannabidiol full therapeutic potential is still young in research, it’s clear that it has a lot to offer chronic pain patients – especially for those with difficult to treat pain.

What Type Of CBD Works Best For What Type Of Pain?

It can be difficult for first time users to figure out what kind of CBD might be best for them. There are a lot of options to choose from, so which one is best?

It depends on your goals, and your body.

You can administer CBD in several different ways.

Sublingually (dropping the oil under the tongue)

Ingesting (taking or eating capsules or gummies)

Topically (using a pain cream or balm)

Vaping/Smoking (vaporizing cbd e-liquids)

How CBD is administered affects how it enters your body and bloodstream, thus, affecting how it works for you.

Sublingual Administration

Dropping the CBD under your tongue can provide quick, effective relief for pain issues as well as stress and anxiety. Your body absorbs the CBD quickly, and it comes on strong in most cases.  For physical pain issues, this can be great for those moments of intense agony. Mentally, it’s wonderful for those moments of high stress. You skip the digestion process and get right into the bloodstream with this administration method.

Ingesting

In many cases our customers report to use that our tinctures come on fast and strong, while our capsules kick in slowly but provide longer lasting relief. This makes perfect sense. By eating a CBD capsule or edible gummy the CBD is subject to the bodily processes of digestion in order to enter the bloodstream.

Topically

CBD pain creams are fantastic for muscle aches and nagging stiffness. Rubbing the CBD cream directly onto the affected areas gives your body relief exactly where it needs it.

Dealing With Upper Back Pain

If you’re looking for upper back pain relief, there’s several different things you can do for upper back pain relief. The key will be finding an upper back pain treatment that works for you. We always advise you to see your doctor if you haven’t already. If you’ve recently injured your upper back, it could be the cause of your back pain. If you’ve hurt for less then 3 months, you still could be suffering from acute upper back pain. Now, if you’ve been experiencing back pain for more then 3 months, or even years, you may have chronic back pain. As you’re going to learn, you have several different options to help you back pain.

Upper Back Pain Causes

Your upper back pain can be caused by a variety of different things. One of the most common upper back pain causes is injury. The upper back is made up of several components, including large muscles, ligaments, vertebrae, disc, ribs and nerves. An injury to any of these areas can cause you to have upper back pain. Again, you should always consult with a doctor to seek treatment for your back pain. The following list of conditions can be the cause of your upper back pain.

 

  • Arthritis
  • Degenerative Disc *(Rare)
  • Herniated Disc (Thoracic) *(Rare)
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Pinched Nerve
  • Pulled Muscle
  • Ruptured Discs *(Rare)
  • Spinal Stenosis *(Rare)
  • Spondylolisthesis *(Rare)
  • Torn Ligament
  • Vertebrae

 

*(Rare) These conditions and injuries can happen in the upper back but most of them are rare. The upper back is not as mobile as the lower back. Although these can occur in the upper back, it’s not likely. These are typical to lower back pain.

Your upper back is made up of big large muscles. These muscles are prone to injury and one of the most common causes of upper back pain. The shoulder girdle attaches by large muscles to the scapula (the shoulder blade) and the back of the thoracic rib cage. These large upper back muscles are prone to developing irritation known as Muscular Irritation which can be painful and difficult to work out. This type of pain is also known as Myofascial Pain.

Another type of upper back pain that can cause you back pain is known as Joint Dysfunction. The ribs connect with the vertebrae in the thoracic spine by two joints that connect with each side of the spine. Dysfunction in these joints can result in upper back pain. This type of back pain is often followed by extreme inflammation. Cancer is another cause of upper back pain, as well as infections. Lack of exercise and bad posture are other causes of upper back pain.

Upper back pain can occur from the neck down to the ribs. Your pain may stay in the upper back but it’s possible that upper back pain can spread to other areas of the body. It’s possible that your pain could spread to the neck, shoulders, arm and to the lower back.

Upper Back Pain Diagnosis

There’s a few different ways that upper back pain can be diagnosed. For most cases, a physical exam and history check can give your doctor a pretty clear path to your diagnosis. In other cases, this rote my difficult. You may be asked to move certain body parts or to bend certain ways. Your doctor may also choose to do a X-ray, MRI or CT scan to determine the cause of your upper back pain. For most of you, one of these will probably show the cause of your upper back pain. In rare cases, other methods may be used.

Upper Back Pain Treatments 

When it comes to upper back pain treatments, there’s dozens of them. Nearly every doctor in the country has their own method or treatments. Your upper back pain treatment will likely depend on the cause of your upper back pain. Some upper back pain can be minor while some may experience severe back pain. For those who suffer from minor upper back pain, over-the-counter medications such as Motrin or Tylenol may help. You may find something else you’d rather take. Those who suffer from severe upper back pain may need to take prescribed pain medications, which will have to be prescribed by your doctor. Such pain medications may include Vicodin or Lortab.

Physical therapy is another common upper back pain treatment. There’s several different types of physical therapy that you may be asked to consider by your doctor. Passive physical therapy is one option you may want to consider for your pain. This includes heat and ice treatments, electrical stimulation as well. You may be asked to do active physical therapy. This requires exercising and stretching.

 If other upper back pain treatments and physical therapy don’t work, you may have to get surgery done on your upper back. Every surgery is a risk. Surgery can help you end your upper back pain for good. I know some of you may be scared and rightfully so. In some cases, surgery doesn’t work and the pain remains. This is something that you’ll have to discuss with your doctor and family.

Exercise and massage can help with your upper back pain as well. Back pain exercises can help you ease and relieve your back pain. The same can be said in regards to a good back massage. Both are excellent ways to relieve upper back pain. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a partner to give you a good massage. Massage therapist are not cheap.
