Lower back pain hurts. It not only bodily discomfort, but can cause stress, affect us at home and work, and affect how we interact with family and with friends.
3 Best Ways to Reduce Lower Back Pain From Home
Get Restorative ZZZ’s
Approximately two-thirds of people with chronic back pain suffer from some type of sleep disorder.
Insufficient sleep time can make your back pain worse. This vicious cycle makes it ineffective to treat just the pain.
If you have sleep problems, you need to get the sleep problems addressed too.
Create soothing rituals during the evening hours to help power down and relax.
Turn off your devices, consider a warm bath with magnesium salts and listen to some relaxing music.
Engage Your Core
The muscles in your abs and back play a major role in supporting your lower spine.
These muscles normally don’t get a good workout during the course of a normal day—they need to be specifically targeted through exercise.
Consider taking a Pilates or Yoga class at your local YMCA or area studio. There are also many simple exercises you can do at home to build up your core muscles.
Alleviate Your Pain with TENS
If you having pain for more than 12 weeks, it may consider as chronic lower back pain.
TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) Unit provides non-invasive, drug-free pain relief for lower back pain.
TENS is a small device with electrodes that send stimulating pulses along nerve strands and across the skin’s surface.
The pulses suppress pain signals to the brain and encourage the body to produce higher levels of its own natural pain killing chemicals – endorphins and encephalin.
