Back Pain

Back Pain Q & A

How common is back pain?

 Back pain is the most common cause of disability on a global scale. It affects more than half of the human population and costs the American government billions of dollars in lost productivity every year.

Many people think surgery is the only way to treat and relieve back pain, but that’s far from the case. Conservative measures of care and holistic treatments like miracle wand therapy are known to ease back pain as well. 

Does back pain present any obvious symptoms?

 The symptoms of back pain vary depending on the source of your pain and its location. Telltale signs of back pain include:

  • Muscle aches
  • Sharp, stabbing pain
  • Pain that radiates down your leg
  • Pain that gets better when you lay down

In addition, back pain is generally associated with physical activity. For example, if you suffer from back pain, it’s usually more prominent when you’re walking, running, or lifting something.

What are some common causes of back pain?

 Your musculoskeletal structure is incredibly complex and therefore susceptible to injury. The team at Miracle Wands Wellness Center regularly works with patients suffering from:

Muscle or ligament strains

Muscle and ligament strains typically occur due to poor lifting form. If your job requires you to carry or move objects, always bend at the waist and lift with your legs, not your back.


Osteoarthritis tends to develop in the lower back. Another type of arthritis, known as spinal stenosis, can cause your spinal canal to narrow, placing pressure on the nerves inside your spinal column.


Osteoporosis is a degenerative disease that causes your bones to become porous and brittle. Left untreated, osteoporosis can affect your vertebrae, causing them to develop compression fractures.

Slipped disc

Between each of your vertebrae is a soft, padded disc that acts as a cushion. If one or more of these discs slip, it can place pressure on the nerves in your spine, causing excruciating pain.

How does miracle wand therapy address back pain?

 Miracle wand therapy builds on ancient Chinese medicine by using thermotherapy to promote circulation, reduce swelling, and relieve pain. 

During miracle wand treatment for back pain, your Miracle Wands Wellness Center™ provider places the miracle wands on various pressure points across your back, encouraging cell regeneration and spinal decompression.

What are miracle wands made from?

 The team at Miracle Wands Wellness Center™ gets all of their miracle wands from Queensland, Australia, specifically the Mount Isa region. The wands the team uses are made from composite stone and are specifically designed for application on various pressure points.
