A lot of people complain about back pain so in today’s article we will suggest ways to handle back pain most effectively.
Most people will say they have had lower or upper back pain, or both at some point in their life, so it is a very common condition that a lot of people suffer from. The pain can also be felt anywhere along the spine, from the neck down to the hips. It can be acute as it can happen suddenly and won’t last long or it can be a chronic condition which can affect people’s daily activities and quality of life.
What can I do to help relieve back pain?
There are a few things you can do at home, such as:
- staying active and keeping up with your daily activities instead of resting for long periods which can make the pain worse,
- trying stretches for back pain,
- using cold compression packs (a bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a cloth will be fine),
- staying positive and persevering with your exercise routine.
If the level of pain stays the same for a few days or is getting worse, then it is time to seek professional help. At Aligned Health Clinic, we have a wide range of treatments, from Chiropractic and Physiotherapy to Massage care, to alleviate back pain.
