Treatment of back pain depends on since when you are in pain, intensity and your needs and preferences. Pain could be constant or sudden, mild or unbearable. Depending on these parameters, treatments for back pain are decided.

Keep moving: One of the most effectual ways to keep back pain away from you is to follow a regular exercise/walk routine. This strengthens muscles that support your back.

Try to remain calm and positive: During stress, you could internalize your anxiety thattighten your muscles. This leads to lower back pain and also may make existing aches worse.

Switch on the tunes: Opt for music that calms you, as it releases positive hormones and can also activate emotional responses that dull your brain’s ability to process pain.

Use a beach ball: When you have to sit for a long time. Fill the ball with air about halfway and place it behind your lower back, in the curve at waist level.

Keep a check on your postures: Make sure your ears are in line with your shoulders; your chest is opened by pulling your shoulder blades downward and toward each other.

Besides the points highlighted above, there are some useful exercises and yoga poses which can be practiced to get relief from back pain. Here are some stretches that will help manage your lower back pain on daily basis.
