Hello friends 😀

Backache can be very serious if not treated and taken care of properly. Lets look at the prevention methods and treatment for backache below :-

Prevention

  1. Avoid any sudden strain and exercise regularly to loosen up the back and strengthen its supporting abdominal muscles.
  2. If you sit for long periods, make sure your back is properly supported. Place a small roll in the arch of your lower spine to maintain its normal S-curve.
  3. When lifting something, never bend down from the waist. always lower and raise yourself at the knees. Keep your back straight and hold the object close to your body.
  4. Balance items you carry evenly on both sides of your body and hold them close or use a knapsack.
  5. Sleep on your back if possible, with knees raised on a pillow. If you sleep on your side, a pillow between the knees will be of big help.
  6. If you need a firm bed, place a bed-board between the mattress and the box spring.

Treatment

  1. Limit activity or stay in bed for 48 hours.
  2. Depending on which works better for you, apply either heat or a cold pack for 15 minutes at a time every couple of hours over a period of 2 days.
  3. Taking aspirin or ibuprofen will help to combat both the pain and inflammation.
  4. To minimize chronic minor back pain, tip your pelvis back, then forward, until you find the position of least pain, then maintain it.

Stay healthy. Stay happy. 😀
