Managing Back Pain

Published

on

Back pain is generally very tricky. It is a pain felt in the back that usually originates from the muscles, nerves, bones, joints or other structures in the spine. However, internal structures such as the gallbladder and pancreas may also refer pain to the back.

The onset of back pain may be acute or chronic. It can be constant or intermittent, stay in one place or radiate to other areas. It may be characterised by a dull ache, or a sharp or piercing or burning sensation.

We often get a strained and aching back if we lift something heavy, keep stooping over a work desk all day, or simply due to overwork of the back. In these situations, it is always advisable to try some natural cure for back pain that will relieve you from the pain without any harmful side effect.

However, keep in mind that you should resort to home remedies only if the back pain is due to some such simple reasons. If along with the back pain there is weakness, pain or numbness in the legs, it may be an indication of some more serious problems and hence, you should immediately see a doctor.

To ease back pain you can apply ice: ice pack for back pain, change your mattress, get a hot bath, don’t keep lying down, get a massage.
