Some common remedies to help lower back pain include:
• The RICE protocol- Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Alternate between ice and hot compresses on the lower back for the first 48 hours. This will help relax muscle strain.
• OTC pain relievers like acetaminophen (Tylenol) or ibuprofen (Motrin IB, Advil) can give temporary lower back pain relief.
• A warm bath or massage can help ease stiff back muscles.
• Lie down on the side with a pillow between the legs to relieve pressure on the lower back region
In most cases, the cause of lower back pain is injury and muscle strain from lifting heavy objects or operating heavy machinery. Other underlying conditions like the following could cause lower back pain:
Cancer of the spinal cord
Infection of the spine
Ruptured or herniated disc
Abnormal spine curvature
People with prolonged back pain or recurring instances should definitely consider walking as a low-impact form of exercise.
If lower back pain lasts longer than 72 hours even after home remedies, its time to call a medical professional.
It is recommended to sleep on the side with a pillow between your legs, if sleeping on your back causes you discomfort.
