Myalgia is a general term for a symptom caused by
a variety of disorders and medical conditions. It
represents pain in a muscle or a group of muscles.
Muscle aches and pains are common and can involve
more than one muscle. Muscle pain also can involve
ligaments, tendons, and fascia, the soft tissues
that connect muscles, bones, and organs.
Myalgia can be triggered by many problems. Muscle
pain is often related to tension, overuse, or muscle
injury from exercise, sprains, strains, overexertion
or physically-demanding work. The pain frequently
involves specific muscles and starts during or just
after the activity. Muscle pain also can be a symptom
of other conditions affecting your whole body. Some
viral infections and connective tissue disorders,
such as lupus, may cause myalgia. Fibromyalgia (characterized
by chronic widespread pain and allodynia, a heightened
sensitivity to pressure) may cause tenderness in
your muscles and surrounding soft tissue, sleep
difficulties, fatigue, and headaches.
Similarly, back pain can have many different causes
such as nerve irritation, disc herniation, bony
encroachment, to name a few. However, one of the
more common causes of low back pain (lumbar backache)
includes lumbar strain. A lumbar strain is a stretch
injury to the ligaments, tendons, and/or muscles
of the low back. The stretching incident results
in microscopic tears of varying degrees in these
tissues. Lumbar strain is considered one of the
most common causes of low back pain. The injury
can occur because of overuse, improper use, or trauma.
Soft-tissue injury is commonly classified as "acute"
if it has been present for days to weeks. If the
strain lasts longer than three months, it is referred
to as "chronic." Lumbar strain most often
occurs in people in their 40s, but it can happen
at any age. The condition is characterized by localized
discomfort in the low back area with onset after
an event that mechanically stressed the lumbar tissues.

often present in the involved muscle groups.
How is myalgia and
Lower Back Pain diagnosed?
During a physical examination, the doctor may find
evidence of stiffness or inflamed and painful muscle
groups in the affected area. Usually, X-ray imaging
is helpful by excluding bone abnormalities in cases
of lower back pain. The diagnosis of lumbar strain
is based on the history of injury, the location
of the pain, and exclusion of nervous system injury.
What is the typical treatment for myalgia and Lower
In both instances, patients often rest to avoid
reinjury and acetaminophen or ibuprofen is recommended.
Additionally, it is common apply ice for the first
24 - 72 hours of an injury to reduce pain and inflammation.
After that, heat can feel more soothing. Gentle
stretching exercises after a long rest period and
massage can also helpful. Once the pain subsides,
regular aerobic exercise can help restore proper
muscle tone. Stretching and toning exercises help
to feel better and stay pain-free. However, avoid
high-impact aerobic activities and weight lifting
when injured or while in pain.
Doctors may prescribe medication or physical therapy,
or refer you to a specialized pain clinic.
The Ateevia Botanica PRIME
Therapy utilizes plant extracts with known
pharmacological activity as the successfully basis
in the fight against the initiation of an inflammatory
process. For example, lignans are plant hormones
known as phytoestrogens. A phytoestrogen is a plant
constituent that possesses estrogenic activity.
Phytoestrogens are not precursors of human hormones,
but rather they interact with human estrogen receptors
to elicit various responses. Diets high in lignans
have demonstrated in animals a direct anti-inflammatory
effect due to its known antioxidant properties.
Investigations on the effects of plant lignans reveal
that the isolated lignan derivatives contribute
strongly to anti-inflammatory activity by intervening
against inflammatory markers. Isolated pure lignans
inhibit the production of major systemic markers
of inflammation. These effects have been demonstrated
in animals, healthy volunteers and in patients diagnosed
with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid
arthritis. Furthermore, regular lignan intake can
help retard the production of atherosclerosis by
reducing inflammatory responses.
The term inflammation covers a complex series of
reparative and protective responses to tissue injury,
whether caused by infection, autoimmune stimuli
or mechanical injury. Ateevia's
PRIME offers an all
natural, safe solution to the common ailment of
inflammation-based pain. Containing plant substances
serving as anti-inflammatory agents that can influence
the earlier stages of inflammation, PRIME
has become the go-to solution for so many in their
goal to suppress inflammation, and a ubiquitous
daily defense against pain. Try PRIME
