Alternative Back Pain Management: What You Can Do
Anyone living with back pain knows how it can negatively affect the quality of life. Painkillers are always the most popular option, but you don’t want to be on those for any extended period of time due to physical and psychological side effects. Surgery, in most cases, should be your last option. Luckily, there are some alternative advanced pain management techniques you can do to help your ailing back. Here are some of the most common.
A good massage can release tension and spasms in your back muscles and help you feel more relaxed. To improve your spine health in the long-term, though, you’ll have to to get into an active spine care program. Over time, you should feel less pain in your back and won’t need as many painkillers.
Lower Back Exercises
You don’t have to do strenuous exercises to keep your back healthy. Simply walking for 30 minutes or so each day will relieve recurrent spasming and help in soft tissue regeneration. Doing some yoga or Pilates are also great lower back exercises since they focus on stretching and muscle strength. Best of all, you don’t have to set aside hours each day to do these. Just 10-15 minutes when you wake up or go to bed will go a long way in relieving your back pain.
