4 Achy Back Solutions for the Everyday Man

By Genevieve Cunningham

The struggle of back pain is real. Far too many people suffer from this frustrating ailment. If you don’t already have back pain, chances are good that you’ll experience it sometime in the future. The most frustrating part of dealing with back pain isn’t necessarily occasional discomfort, but rather that the back is used so very often that pain in this area gets in the way of everyday life. If you’re tired of dealing with back pain, take a look at these four solutions for managing discomfort and feeling better every day.

Exercise and Stretch

Exercise is one of the best things for your body, and it’s also incredibly good for managing back pain. Exercise (and don’t forget to stretch!) helps to keep the body strong, but also loose and limber. This means that you’ll have fewer instances of injury and a bit less stiffness that can ultimately lead to back pain. Try to make stretching and exercise a routine in order to gain the most benefit from this technique.

Use Heat at the End of the Day

Many of us feel back pain the worst at the end of the day. We’ve been moving all day long, and by the time we get home, all of that stress and tension of the day manifests in the back. In order to combat this, try using heat at the day’s end. Grab a heating pad, take a hot shower, or sit in the sauna at the gym. Heat relaxes the muscles, pulls heat to the area in order to promote healing, and reduces overall discomfort.

Carry Topical Gels

If you experience back pain throughout the day, carry around a simple topical gel such as IcyHot. These types of lotions help ease pain by warming the area. It works much in the way that a heating pad or hot shower works, but you won’t have to stop what you’re doing to use it. Just run it on and go about your business.

Get Chiropractic Care

By far, the best solution for back pain is to get chiropractic care on a regular basis. Chiropractors look for misalignments of the spine, and then correct them using manual spinal manipulation. These misalignments can cause pain and discomfort, headaches, inflexibility, and a whole host of other side effects. By keeping your spine aligned on a regular basis, you may find less pain and a healthier spine and body overall.

While most of these solutions can be done with a quick trip to the store and then in the comfort of your own home, you will need the help of a professional for getting chiropractic care. To get the best quality care with the least amount of stress, check out The Joint Chiropractic. At The Joint, walk-in visits and affordable pricing are always part of the experience.
