Home Remedies for Back Pain

Finding Relief from Spinal Discomfort at Home

From getting dressed to climbing stairs, persistent back pain can get in the way of everyday activities. When suffering from chronic back pain, seeing a spinal health specialist is your best bet—however, you may need some temporary relief in the meantime.

While waiting to see a professional, here are some tips to help you to ward off aches and pains at home.

Get a Massage

While getting a massage after a long day can help you find some emotional release, it can help relieve tension that may be exacerbating your back pain. Having a therapeutic massage can help to reduce the symptoms associated with chronic neck and back pain.

Stretch it Out

Doing yoga and dynamic stretching is also an excellent way to relieve pain-causing tension and stiffness that may be affecting your muscles and joints. Depending on this part of your back is causing you trouble, there are different stretches you can try. For example:

  • Upper back pain: Shoulder rolls, overhead arm reach, and cat-cow pose.
  • Middle back pain: Seated twists, cobra pose, and bridge pose.
  • Lower back pain: Child’s pose, pelvic tilts, and sphinx stretch.

Take a Hot Shower or Bath

Applying heat to your back can help relieve unwanted muscle tension that may contribute to your spinal discomfort. In addition to using heating pads, you can also take a nice warm shower or bath to yield the same benefits.
