Everyone gets back pain once in a while. But what do you do once it

starts? Here's 5 ways to manage occasional bouts of back pain  

#1 - Rest - but just a little
If your back hurts, take a rest. Lie down and avoid overusing your back muscles for a while. This

doesn't mean stay in bed for a week. In fact, too much rest can make your back pain worse. After

a short break, get up, move around, and stretch. You'll find it actually helps reduce that nagging backache.

#2 - Medications
Today, there are a wide variety of medications to choose from to treat back pain. Some drugs

relieve pain, reduce inflammation, and relax muscle spasms. Many are available over-the-counter

at your local drug store or pharmacy. Other medications require a doctor's prescription.

  Acetaminophen (Tylenol® and other brands)
 Non-steriodal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, Naproxen®, and many more)
 COX-2 Inhibitors (such as Celebrex®)
#3 - Cold/Heat therapy
Cold therapy can help reduce inflammation, muscle spasm, and pain. Cold therapy may be

recommended immediately following a sprain or strain. Apply cold to your back using cold

packs, ice cubes, iced towels/compresses, or take a cool bath.

Apply heat to your aching back by using a hot compress, a dry or moist heating pad, or

hydrotherapy (hot bath). Heat therapy can help decrease muscle spasms, relax tense

muscles, relieve pain, and can increase range of motion.

A good general rule if you are unsure whether heat or cold would be better is does it

make your back feel better when you apply it? If you feel better then it is working. Remember, never

apply cold or heat/hot therapies directly on your skin - wrap it in a towel first.

#4 - Massage
Massage is a popular therapy that can help relieve muscle tension, spasms, inflammation, aches, stiffness, and

pain. It can also help improve circulation, flexibility, and range of motion. Massage can be

administered by a professional (massage therapist) or you can give yourself a mini-massage

using hand-held massagers that can help increase blood flow and relieve pain.

#5 - See Your Doctor
The most important thing to remember about periodic bouts of back pain is that if they occur

more and more frequently, increase in duration (more than a few days), or the pain starts to

interfere with your usual activities, it's time to see your doctor. It could be more than just a

minor strain.

The good news is that most back problems can be treated with non-surgical methods. Back

problems that go untreated may get worse and could cause serious health consequences.
