If you feel you have overexerted your muscles, you can perform a few actions at home to relieve your pain. Conventional treatments can include bed rest, pain remedies, cold or hot pads, massage, and muscle relaxation.
We can pull the muscles or sprain our back during exercise, so many of us turn to standard pain reducers found in pharmacies to dull the pain.
These common over-the-counter meds all include ibuprofen, aspirin, and acetaminophen. Beware, if you have asthma, allergies, or polyps, leave ibuprofen and aspirin alone.
Cold packs work well, but you should avoid using cold packs if you have conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis or related symptoms. Cold packs can reduce back pain; if you allow the packs to remain on your back long enough. (minimum of twenty minutes) If left for the recommended time, they will reduce muscle spasms, pain, and inflammation associated with over-exercise.
You can also apply hot packs to the area; however, avoid placing hot packs over areas where scar tissue is present. Furthermore, do not use hot packs if you suffer from poor circulation.
Indulge yourself, take a hot and steamy bath or shower; nothing helps calm you down and relieve common everyday stresses like a warm bath.
Purchase hydrocollators and place them as close as possible to the affected area. You can find hydrocollators at most pharmacies or locations where medical equipment or medications are sold.
If your muscles feel tight, then a massage will not hurt you; in fact, a good massage can work wonders. If you live on your own and have no one to give you a massage, think of searching out a local massage therapist in your area who offers affordable treatments, they are not as expensive as you may think.
Important, you should avoid massages if you have fallen or were in an accident and injured. Seek medical help first; you may need medical treatment.
To avoid complicating joint back pains, try to keep active with gentle exercise, exercise for at least 20 minutes every day.
Remember, throughout the day, we humans sit, lie on our backs, stand, walk, run, or jump, just to mention a few. These acts alone create gravity pressure to the spine and cause common backaches and pains, so do not overexert yourself.
When sitting, try rolling a towel up and situate it as close to your lower back as possible. This simple trick can provide extra lumbar support to your body at no cost to you whatsoever.
Beware, if you have conditions such as spinal stenosis or spondylolisthesis, your back can become irritated if you use back supports, so ask your medical professional before using them.
Use a chair that has armrests; you can use the rests to lower or raise your position. Avoid bending when you lift yourself out of the chair; keep your back as straight as possible while rising from the chair and avoid twisting when rising from a seated position.
To minimize back pain, you should avoid sitting at your work desk for long hours, taking regular breaks, and walking around the room. This simple action will help not only your back pain but also rest your eyes. A good boss will not fault you for this.
By using common sense, back pain can be reduced. However, if you are already trying remedies at home or work and the treatments fail, you must seek medical advice, as back pain can also be a sign of many other physical or medical problems.
