How to Reduce Back Pain
The best way to cure back pain is to reduce the amount of sedentary activity in your daily living. Once you’ve gotten to the core of the problem and decreased the amount of sitting done per day, whether at home or at work, you’re ready to implement other proven strategies to reduce back pain.
- Wear a Back Brace.A back brace, also referred to as a spinal brace, can provide individuals suffering from chronic back pain with much-needed posture support. Since bad posture is a leading cause of back pain, using a back brace is a smart method of relieving stress on the spine and alleviating back pain.Do back braces actually work?Yes; a back brace really does support muscles and bones in the lower back area! Through providing muscles with much-needed support, a back brace relieves and often even eliminates back pain. The support provided by the back brace allows your body to de-stress, relax, and heal from the strain it had. And, at the same time, a back brace will train the back to assume the proper posture.
- Wear a Back Support Belt.Lower back support belts will reduce pressure on the spine and help keep it stabilized. They can help improve back posture and manage pain in the lower back.These belts are often worn when doing strenuous activities that exert the back. They are used by athletes, and by workers in various industries who carry heavy loads. Back belts can prevent injuries to the lower back.Since wearing a lumbar support belt can fill a person with a false sense of security, someone wearing such a belt should be extra cautious, and he should always think twice to make sure he isn’t carrying too heavy of a load.A premier benefit of using a back pain belt is that it keeps a person conscious of his movements, and reminds him to use the healthy parts of his body rather than the hurting parts as much as he can. This helps sore muscles heal. Wearing a belt can also improve overall posture.A lower back support belt should only be used for part of the day, since wearing it all day can cause back muscles to become weak.
- Straighten Your Posture.Slouching leads to back pain, and perpetual slumping can trigger chronic back pain. To keep your body in the right sitting position, here’s what you can do:
- Use a back brace for posture support, as mentioned above. Alternatively, you may choose to wear a back belt periodically as a way to stay mindful of your efforts to improve your posture.
- Place a lumbar pillow behind your lower back (between you and the back of your seat), relax your shoulders, and lean them against the back of your chair. Take care to keep your feet flat against the floor.
