Back pain is an extremely common problem that everyone of us may suffer with at some point in our lives. It can be triggered by many things. This includes bad posture, bending awkwardly or not lifting something correctly. Mostly these will cause some strain or injury to your back. In most cases a back pain will get better over time. But if the problem persists here are a few things you can do help alleviate the pain and make yourself more comfortable.
At first, you should…
When the problem first strikes it’s important to remain as active as possible and try and continue with your usual daily activities. You can take painkillers to help ease the pain. Alternatively, you could consider using heat or ice to help. However if the problem persists further, then you may want to try one of the following ways.
Strong painkillers from your doctor
If you are struggling to carry on with your daily activities, you may want to consider speaking to your doctor. They may be able to prescribe to you a stronger painkiller. This will help ease the pain and allow you to carry on with your life while your body repairs itself. Strong painkillers will only be a short term fix and if the problem persists you may need to consider something else.
You can attend specific exercise classes or physiotherapists who will be able to advise on specific exercises. This will help strengthen your back and go a long way to resolving the problem that has occurred. It may take a few visits, but over time, you should see some improvement. They may be able to offer advice so you can avoid the problem reoccurring.
Visit a chiropractor
If nothing seems to be helping, then you may want to consider the services of a chiropractor. A Straight Forward Chiropractor should be able to pinpoint the problem area and apply pressure and movement to alleviate the pain. A few sessions with an expert could be all it takes to give your back a new lease of life.
Acupuncture is an alternative medicine that could be considered. It is where many needles are inserted under the skin to encourage blood flow. In this instance, they will be placed at different spots in your body to do with pain. Again it may take a few sessions, but there are studies to show that acupuncture has been a great method to rid the pressure in your back.
Finally, you could consider a massage at your local spa. Many spas offer different types of massages, and some specialise in sports massage and deep tissue therapy. It would be recommended to use this option if your back pain isn’t as severe. If it is particularly bad, then you may want to see a professional that specialises in medical massage therapy for pain.
I hope this helps you resolve and niggling back pains you have.
