Top Tips for Lower Back Pain Relief

 

You may think that it is only who is suffering from back pain but this is the most common problem occurring in populations world over. Out of ten every eighth individual is suffering from this problem.

 

Common reasons for lower back pain

The most common cause of lower back pain is sudden movement or lifting of heavy objects by the people who are not used to it. The muscles of the back are more prone to such injuries and therefore experience swelling and pain. This over exertion of muscles is not good in long term and may result n permanent damage of the muscles therefore one must try to contain it in the early stages of the problem. Slipped disc is one such problem. It is actually the herniation of the disc present between the two vertebrae and this leads to impinging of the bone of the vertebrae on the nerves that come out of the spine causing pain. It is only by exercise that you can get back pain relief.

  • Lying down: lying down may sound too simple way to relieve low back pain to be effective but it is and you need to use pillow both under your feet and head after lying flat on the floor or just lie flat on the floor and an put your feet up on the chair.
  • Hot or cold packs: this remedy is the most effective one and you should start off with using the cold packs first which reduce inflammation. Then move on to hot pack which will relieve the stress.
  • Medicines: medicines such as those that have anti inflammatory effect should be had for reducing the inflammation of the tissues. These medications also act on the sensory fibres that carry pain to the central nervous system and therefore reduce pain.
  • Massage: massaging can also reduce the back pain in the lower back but it should be done with caution as vigorous massage can disrupt the healing tissues and cause further damage.
  • Rest: this is though very important you should avoid being bed ridden. You must keep yourself mobile and carry out a few jobs so that the muscles of your back get necessary stimulus.

 

When you are relieved of your pain you must do certain exercises that are known to strengthen your back muscles. This will help to keep not only your back from getting injured but also keep the discs between your vertebrae in their place without letting them herniated.

However, if back pain persists for more than two to three weeks you must consult your doctor and have the best medical advice as there is nothing as good as the professional advice for your body ailments.
