Treatments for Lower Back Pain
Depending on the underlying cause of your lower back pain, many different treatments may be effective. Some of the common treatments for lower back pain include:
- Rest: This is often one of the first things recommended for people with lower back pain because it gives your body a chance to heal itself. For more severe cases of lower back pain, bed rest may be recommended for a few days to a week.
- Exercise: Once your pain has begun to improve, gentle exercises that stretch and strengthen the muscles in your back can be helpful in relieving symptoms and preventing further episodes of lower back pain. Regular exercise is also important for your overall health and well-being.
- Chiropractic Care: Chiropractic care is a specific type of treatment that involves adjusting the spine to relieve pressure on the nerves and improve overall function. This type of care with a professional chiropractor can be very effective in treating lower back pain caused by muscle strain or injury.
- Massage Therapy: Massage therapy involves using kneading and stroking techniques to relax tense muscles and improve circulation. This type of therapy can be beneficial for people with all types of lower back pain.
