If you routinely suffer from back pain, you are likely searching for effective remedies to find relief. Chiropractic care offers natural and drug-free treatment to provide pain relief and support the healing process. Dr. Kuskin and our team at Back To Health Wellness Center in Sarasota have gathered a few tips you can try and others that require professional care when you are ready to address your back pain once and for all.
Use Hot and Cold Therapies
The power of changing the temperature on the affected area of your back can greatly reduce your pain. After an injury occurs, place an ice pack wrapped in a towel on the area where you feel pain. Keep this in place for twenty minutes to reduce any inflammation. For chronic back pain, use a heating pad for twenty-minute increments to increase blood flow to the area. The improved blood flow with help circulate vital nutrients to the area and help the injury heal.
Rest and Back Support
When you are dealing with a bout of back pain, make sure to rest your body since unnecessary activities can exacerbate your symptoms. If you need to perform an activity where you need to move your back or lift a weight of any kind, be sure to use a back brace or have someone help you with these tasks. If you need to sit at a desk or drive for an extended period, be sure to use a back support pillow.
Try Chiropractic Treatments
