Lower Back Pain Prevention And Treatment


It is not advisable to go like a bull at a gate while doing exercises, as this may result in shoulder and back pain sometimes leading to an acute back condition. Following some strategies for lower back pain prevention and treatment, one can get substantial relief through low impact aerobic exercises, swimming, and walking to make the muscles strong and active according to this article. In case of acute pain, when no exercises are found to be providing relief, a chiropractor, physiotherapist, or any other medical professional should be consulted. Proper treatment, which includes icing and taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or homeopathic medicine, can give desired results.



Lower Back Pain Prevention And Treatment

Low back strengthening for the prevention and treatment of pain.

Anyone who plays sports or exercises regularly has probably experienced a variety of common body ailments or pain syndromes. It’s pretty hard to use your body to its fullest potential without running into issues like shoulder pain, or lower back pain. In my own athletic and exercise career I’ve managed a good number of these injuries, and thought it might be helpful to share some insight.


There are a number of strategies for preventing lower back pain. Regular low impact aerobic exercises, like walking or swimming, are excellent for keeping muscles active and balanced while building strength and endurance. Building a strong core stabilization system is also very important. The core acts like a protective belt around your entire mid-section, and when it works properly it will enhance your movement while reducing stress to your body’s bones, joints and other tissues. Strength in your other muscles will help to make movement and lifting much less taxing on your lower back. It’s also very desirable to maintain good flexibility in your hips and upper legs, to allow for good postural alignment and unrestricted movement. And remember that being overweight puts additional strain on your lower back, as well as other joints and structures of your body, so work hard to maintain a healthy weight for your body.




If you do experience an acute episode of lower back pain, try to get an assessment and/or treatment by a chiropractor, physiotherapist, or other qualified practitioner that you trust. The right treatment can reduce a seriously troublesome lower back episode to nothing more than a day or two of mild discomfort. I know this from my own repeated experience, and I can’t understand why people wait weeks to see if their pain goes away on it’s own. If you can’t see a practitioner right away, be sure to rest the area immediately and do what you can to reduce inflammation to the injured tissues. Icing the area right after the injury occurs can make a big difference in reducing the level of pain and inflammation. Many specialists also recommend non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and/or painkillers for comfort. There are also a number of homeopathic remedies that might help. Overall, it’s important not to over-react, but to take the matter seriously.
