How to Prevent & Treat Lower Back Pain

Posted By Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain || 5-Oct-2017

Back pain can be utterly debilitating to several aspects of your life. Not only does it make activities you once loved painful beyond belief, it also prevents you from various activities such as sleeping, driving, working, exercising, and more. At Gwinnett Medical Back & Neck Pain, we understand that lower back pain can be caused by a number of external factors, and our chiropractic professionals will find custom-made solutions to even the worst of your pain. However, we believe repairing your lower back pain starts at home--there are numerous things you can do to help us help you.

The following tips can help you prevent and treat your lower back pain with ease:

  • Use heat and ice alternatively to provide your muscles with relief.
  • Make sure you stay active, as strengthening your body is key to preventing back pain. However, make sure you don’t overdo it, as overexertion can cause more harm than good.
  • If you are stationary for the majority of the day, especially in an office job, make sure you stretch as often as possible.
  • Try yoga, as it is a gentle way to strengthen and stretch your body.
  • Sleep! Most people forgo sleep in place of other things they find more important, but sleep is essential to your body’s healing process.
  • TENS, or transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulators, are safe and effective methods of helping your body find pain relief.
  • Perhaps one of the most important steps to bettering yourself is as simple as keeping great posture. If you are slumped over for extended periods of time, you can cause irreversible damage.
