Back Pain - 6 Best Ways To Manage It!

Back Pain - 6 Best Ways To Manage It!

Whether you're old or young, male or female, having a backache can be a real pain! A number of factors ranging from osteoarthritis to muscle strains can be attributed to back pains. No matter what the cause of a backache, a combination of core strengthening exercises, activity, and physical therapy can help lessen the pain.

A backache can be caused by something as simple as bending the wrong way. Hence, the first step towards dealing with a backache is to pay attention to daily movements. If you have to lift something heavy off the floor, bend your knees and let the weight of your load fall on your legs instead of it falling on your back. Here is more on how you can fight back pain with a bit of effort:

1. Light exercises
Simple, light exercises are the most effective ways of dealing with back pain. The key to exercising your back is moderation and knowing your limits.

2. Brisk walk and yoga
Regular brisk walks and yoga exercises that strengthen and stretch back muscles are effective ways to reduce and prevent back pain.

3. Right posture
Exercise can also help reduce excess weight that in turn helps reduce backaches. Slouching not only causes a hunch back but also aggravates back aches. Hence, maintain a right posture to take the pressure off nerves and lower back pain.

4. Proper posture while sleeping
A good night's sleep can also help soothe inflamed back joints and repair strained muscles. Pay attention to your mattress and ensure that your back is flat when you lie on it. Sleeping on your side can also help deal with the back pain. Consider resting your neck on a pillow, to keep your spine aligned while you sleep.

5. Hot & cold therapy
Experiment with hot and cold therapy before picking one of them to deal with your back pain. While applying ice packs on your back can help reduce inflammations, hot packs work better to reduce cramps and muscle spasms. Whether you use a hot pack or a cold pack, do not leave it on for more than 20 minutes.

6. Natural supplements
Natural supplements such as flaxseed oil, calcium, magnesium and Vitamin C are helpful when dealing with back pains.

For short-term relief, you could also try over the counter pain relievers. However, do not let this become a long-term habit, as your body could get dependent on it. Other potential side effects could include stomach and liver problems. Hence, if your backache does not subside on its own, it is best to consult a doctor before treating it yourself.

Do not worry, but do take good care of your health. So adapt a healthy lifestyle and follow the discipline every day. Start exercising everyday for atleast 30 mins and later increase the pace. And duration. Add Yoga (include pranayam also) which can bring balance and focus in your Life. Later you can try Homeopathy which is safe and effective without any side-effects. You can contact me if you are interested.

Your back pain is for long time and simply taking painkillers will not help you. Your back pain needs to be evaluated in details and treated accordingly. You should consult a pain specialist in your city. Many causes of back pain can be easily cured by injections given at targeted areas of pain generator like sacroiliac joint or facet joint. A pain specialist is a doctor specialised in management of chronic pain conditions. Many patients of backpain avoid spine surgery by treatment with interventional pain specialist.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your vitamin d levels are extremely low and you should take calcium and vitamin d together because they work best when taken together. You will have to describe in detail the problems you are facing in your elbow region like whether there is any pain, swelling or any other symptoms. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
