Do you have a problem of lower back pain?

Well, anyone can have the problem of lower back pain. It can be temporary or permanent. If it is of temporary nature, it must have been due to your wrong posture or increased stress level.

You have to treat it at the initial stage to avoid any kind of future healthy issues. Most of the people recommend that massage is the best technique that can be used to reduce this pain.  However, there are other strategies that can be used to reduce your back pain


#1: Be Patient & Rest

Back pains can be caused due to a hectic routine or when you have been sitting in the wrong posture for so long. The best initial treatment you can give to yourself is to take some quality rest.

It is best to lie down on a bed and stop using your back muscles for some time. In this way, the temporary issue of your back will be resolved. However, you need to take rest only for some time. Over resting will increase your issue instead of decreasing it.


#2: Use Cold & Heat Therapy

It has been medically proven that the back pain can be relieved with the usage of cold and hot therapy. In initial days, it is best to use cold therapy as it will help in the reduction of inflammation. It will also treat the muscle spasm.

It is mostly recommended immediately after you experience back pain. Heat therapy, on the other hand, is the one that is used to ease the tension created in your muscles. Apply heat exactly at the pain point of your back.


#3: Use Medications

This step comes only when you have tried the initial things yourself and you could not find any relief from them.

However, you can take a less potency pain killer to get some relief. If it does not work, consult a professional. Do explain the initial measures you have taken to reduce this pain.


#4: Get a Massage Therapy

Massage therapy is something that is proved to be the beneficial solution of your back pain problem. Get yourself some massage and it will increase the blood circulation in your body thus reducing your back pain.

Massage therapy will also help in increasing the flexibility and range of your muscles. It can be provided by a professional or you can also do it yourself with the usage of some massaging machine.
