Back Pain Decoded

Hey there! Are you dealing with nagging low back pain that just won’t seem to go away? You’re not alone – it’s estimated that up to 80% of adults experience back pain at some point in their lives. We understand the physical, emotional, and mental toll that back pain can have on your daily life. It can be frustrating, limiting, and even debilitating at times.

However, we want to assure you that you are not alone, and there is hope for relief and recovery.  But before you resort to costly and invasive treatments like imaging, injections, or even surgery, consider physical therapy as a more natural, non-invasive solution.

We have seen many patients who have tried expensive and invasive treatments for their low back pain, such as imaging, costly spinal injections, back surgery, opioid pain medication, and visiting a Chiropractor. However, these treatments often come with risks and side effects, and they don’t always provide long-term relief.

Physical therapy is a CHEAPER and BETTER alternative that can not only relieve your pain but also improve your overall function and prevent future episodes of pain.

SIX Tips to Try at Home to Relieve Your Back Pain

  1. Ice or Heat: Applying ice or heat to your lower back can help reduce pain and inflammation. Try using an ice pack for 20 minutes or a heating pad for 8 to 10 minutes at a time.

  1. Stretching: Gentle stretching can help relieve tight muscles and improve flexibility. Try doing some gentle stretches for your lower back, such as Prayer Stretch, Knee-to-Chest Stretch or Cat-Cow Stretches (pictured below).

  1. Posture: Poor posture can put excessive strain on the muscles and structures in the lower back, leading to pain. It is essential to maintain good posture while sitting, standing, and lifting heavy objects. Avoid slouching, and use ergonomic chairs and desks if you have a desk job. When lifting heavy objects, bend your knees and keep your back straight, avoiding twisting or jerking motions.

  1. Exercise: Regular physical activity and exercise are crucial for maintaining a healthy spine and preventing low back pain. Exercise helps to strengthen the muscles in the back, abdomen, and legs, which provide support to the spine. It also improves flexibility and promotes better posture. Low-impact exercises such as walking, swimming, and yoga can be particularly beneficial for people with low back pain and sciatica.

  1. Sleep Position: Sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees can help reduce pressure on your lower back. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, as this can put strain on your lower back.

  1. Practice Proper Body Mechanics: Body mechanics refer to the way you move and use your body. Using proper body mechanics can help reduce the strain on your lower back and decrease your risk of developing low back pain and sciatica. Here are some tips for practicing proper body mechanics:

 

– When lifting heavy objects, use your legs and not your back. Bend your knees, keep your back straight, and lift with your legs while keeping the object close to your body.

– Avoid twisting motions when lifting or carrying heavy objects. Instead, pivot your entire body to change direction.

– When sitting for long periods, use a chair with good lumbar support and sit with your feet flat on the floor. Avoid crossing your legs and try to maintain a neutral spine position.

– When standing for extended periods, avoid slouching and distribute your weight evenly on both feet. Use a footrest if needed to reduce strain on your lower back.

– When sleeping, use a mattress and pillows that provide adequate support to your spine. Avoid sleeping on your stomach as it can strain your back. Instead, sleep on your back or side with a pillow between your knees for added support.
