8 Ways to Get Rid of Back Pain for Good
It seems that our modern sedentary lifestyle leads a large population to experience back pains at some point in their lives. Let's collect a few time-tested remedies for this very common condition.
Stretching, body conditioning, as well as regular training, release endorphins into your brain. This creates the feeling of happiness and also reduces tension in your body, all while building stronger muscles.
2. Keep your feet warm
Back pain can be attributed to more than your muscles or vessels. Certain abdominal inflammations, like peritonitis, will cause you back pain — and you definitely don’t want to apply heat straight to your back in such a case because it will cause the inflammation to increase. To avoid it, you need to keep your feet and bottom warm and certainly see a specialist since those inflammations can only be cured by antibiotics. Quite often pain is caused by muscle strain and tension, however pain may be caused by peritonitis.
3. Apply hot and cold pads
This mostly works if you’ve suffered a trauma in the past, and cold pads ( icing) are best to use within the first 24-48 hours after an injury. After 48 hours, you can switch to heat if it’s more comfortable for you, but always remember to give your skin some rest between sessions. In addition, always protect your skin with a cloth or a tissue.
4. Change your sleeping habits
Bad mattress support will cause back pain. You may also want to vary your sleeping positions and add a pillow between or under your knees to reduce the tension on your knees and back.
5. Stretch your hamstrings
6. Train your core
Your back and abdomen have a lot of muscles, and training them creates a “muscle corset”that supports your upper body. If this “corset” is not strong enough, it puts a lot of pressure on other parts of your body, which causes pain. By training your core and abdominals, you will reduce the pain in your lower back.
7. Manage your risks
There are several common things you can do on a day-to-day basis:
- wear low-heeled shoes
- use car seats and chairs with good lumbar support
- try to not slouch
- if you sit a lot — try chaging positions as much as possible
- get enough vitamin D from sun exposure, it makes your bones stronger
