Coral Gables / PRC - Back Pain
Back pain of any intensity can make even the simplest of tasks difficult and painful. Fortunately, there are many back pain relief techniques that are easy to incorporate into your daily routine. While chronic back pain is a bit more rare, you’re not alone if you’re in need of back pain relief; the majority of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Simple, non-surgical methods you can use to get back pain relief include prolonged bed rest, sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, very light exercise, and sitting with proper posture.
While stretching can be useful in treating some forms of muscular pain, overextending your back with stretches can actually be counteractive and increase your back pain. For many people, the most effective way to find relief for back pain is through a combination of prolonged bed rest and finding comfortable, therapeutic sleeping positions. Many doctors recommend sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, as this has been found to put minimal pressure on your back and allow your body to heal faster. Sleeping posture is important, but having straight, good posture throughout the day will help to gently stretch your muscles and work towards back pain relief.
Light stretching can also yield back pain relief, but remember to take it slowly and avoid any overextension. Stretches should be done slowly and held for 20-30 seconds, allowing your muscles to gently acclimate to being in the stretched position. For those with chronic back pain, light stretching can make it easier for you to assume a more normal, active lifestyle.
