Back Injuries and Penile Nerve Damage

As a man ages, certain parts of his body are destined to feel it more than others. This is absolutely true in the case of back pain. A man can be in perfect health but then one day, out of the blue, he turns a certain way and boom – back pain becomes his constant companion for a while. And unfortunately, even the best penis care regimen can’t protect that man from the possibility of penile nerve damage as a result of a serious back injury.

In the aftermath of a back injury, one of the first signs of nerve damage might be a serious lack of penis sensitivity. Things that felt good before suddenly don’t have as much of an ‘oomph.’ And in some cases, there are other signs of penile nerve damage, such as numbness, pain, tingling, or a burning sensation.

How to fight penile nerve damage

The good news is that in many cases, nerve damage can be reversed. The first step is to get to the doctor immediately. Rather than a urologist, a guy will want to see someone who can address the underlying issue first – that’s the back pain. Look for a doctor who specializes in treatment for back pain and start there.

In some cases, the problem will become clear through imaging scans. For instance, a man who has a herniated disc will likely be able to see the problem on those scans. But for some, more in-depth testing will be required to figure out where the problem is and how to fix it.

In the meantime, a man can take steps to avoid aggravating the nerves in the back that lead to the nerves in the penis. One way to do this is to ask the doctor which kind of pain a guy is dealing with. In flexion-intolerant pain, a man can’t handle any positioning that would force him to bend forward. In extension-intolerant pain, it’s the opposite – anything that would force a man to bend backward is cause for serious pain.

Why does this matter? Because if a man wants to continue to have an active sex life while dealing with the usually long recovery from back pain, he needs to know which positions are going to help make that work.

Positions for alleviating back pain

When a man is in bed with a partner, those who suffer from flexion-intolerant pain should look to rear-entry positions that allow him to keep his back straight, as well as modified missionary, where a man is holding all his weight on his hands. For those with extension-intolerant pain, positions include missionary where a man is resting on his elbows above his partner, as well as spooning.

No matter which position a man chooses, the key is to go slow and easy. A guy who is really into it might move his back without meaning to do so. This means a guy must try to always remember that there could be consequences for that – that’s why slow and easy is the name of the game. Enlist the partner’s help to ensure things stay tame.

Other ways to fight nerve damage

Penile nerve damage can be alleviated somewhat with the use of a high-quality penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin). A crème designed with healthy amounts of vitamin B5, C and D is great for cellular health. Look especially for acetyl L carnitine, an amino acid known for protecting the penis from nerve damage. The application of these vitamins and nutrients through a Shea butter base can help combat the nerve damage that can occur from vigorous activity, excessive friction and yes, back injuries.

Sciatic Nerve Treatment – The Pineapple Treatment

Sciatic nerve pain is without a doubt one of the most irritating pains out there. At its best, it can limit your day to day activities. At it’s worst…well at it’s worst it will end your every day life all together. Just today I saw a man on the bus who opted to get off 3 blocks before his stop because the way he was sitting was causing him too much pain, (crowded buses lead to very open conversations).

There is great news for you sciatica patients who are looking for a natural alternative to the nasty pills and painful treatments you are probably being subjected to with your current doctor. The secret to sciatic nerve pain treatment is no harder than a trip to your grocery store.

Pineapples – the tasty way to sciatic nerve pain relief

It’s pretty unexpected, I will admit. But pineapples contain an amazing enzyme called Bromelain. This enzyme is very powerful, and very potent in treating sciatica. I am not saying eating this alone will heal you. Obviously sciatica is a powerful little beast and it needs an equally powerful treatment plan to kick it to the curb. What I am saying is that food is part of a powerful arsenal of natural methods you can use to tame your sciatic shrew. Of all the foods that you should be putting into your daily diet to treat sciatica (such as anti-inflammatory and potassium rich foods), pineapples are the fastest actors, and can actually take a chunk of the pain out of a flare. Unlike other foods, that you have to build up in your system before you can really feel an impact on your sciatica, bromelain wastes no time getting to work. You do have to eat a decent amount in order to feel a difference, but if you are willing to have a serving of pineapples in each of your meals the next time you have a flare, then you should be well on your way to sciatic nerve pain relief. 

It’s no secret that I think Sciatica stinks. If you are reading this, chances are you do too. The pain can be a debilitating monster of a beast. More often than not the doctor’s advice is painful, pricey, or altogether useless, (‘Alternate heat and ice?’ Sure am glad I wasted my latte money on that stellar piece of advice).
