Turn Your Back To Backache With These Healthy Habits

Turn Your Back To Backache With These Healthy Habits

Backache is an affliction that almost 80% of the population suffers from. It’s the most common problem that plagues society nowadays because of the sedentary lifestyle people have taken to actively. It is caused due to a series of problems mostly because of years of feeding your bad posture, or lifting heavy weights, slouching and other such hazardous lifestyle choices. Other issues that lead to backache include medical problems like pregnancy, arthritis and even osteoporosis. It can also be a result of some long-standing injury to the spine or back that never healed properly.

However, people have to live as they are with backaches, the best they can, choosing medication and other such temporary reliefs. Here are a few ways in which you can regulate your lifestyle and choose healthier habits to slowly but surely cure your backaches.

  1. Exercise: Exercise is a very effective way to keep backaches at bay. But it needs to be moderated and performed carefully. No heavy lifting or any work that requires slouching over and or bending down low for long periods of time. Things like walking and yoga help keep the spine straight and require calculated movements and are very good for your back.
  2. Resting: When you are sleeping, check that you are in a comfortable position, but try not to adopt a sleeping position that is harmful to you. If you wake up in the morning with an aching body, it probably means the mattress you are sleeping on isn’t right for you. A good night’s rest should get you relaxed and feeling refreshed. Which in turn alleviates your backache. Not resting well can elevate your backache Add pillows to hold the existing curve of your spine in place.
  3. Temperature: Applying cold packs or hot compress to the affected area is also an effective way to reduce the pain that comes with backaches. Doctors usually suggest using ice first to lower the swelling and then applying heat as and when required. Either of these methods will work just as well.
  4. Weight: You need to maintain a healthy weight to ensure that your backache does not worsen. Your back helps in pulling the weight of your body and if it is beyond a certain limit the back is not equipped to handle the burden and may give out or start aching continuously. To get to the weight that is required by your height, consult a dietician.
  5. Water: Physiotherapists often recommend using water exercises in lukewarm pools as a treatment. The buoyant nature of water helps with the stress in the muscles and the warmth of the water helps in decreasing the pain.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
