Lower back pain is the leading cause for disability among individuals throughout the world. The Bonati Spine Institute shares the following tips to help alleviate acute lower back pain.
The way people sit, eat and perform their daily routine can influence their susceptibility to lower back pain, according to a recent article published by medicaldaily.com. To read more: http://www.medicaldaily.com/6-daily-activities-back-pain-relief-248206.
The Bonati Spine Institute recommends back pain suffers do the following:
-Eat a healthy diet: consuming a diet rich in red grapes can greatly reduce aches because it contains resveratrol — a polyphenol found in the fruit — which can block enzymes that inhibit tissue deterioration.
-Wear comfortable shoes: flip-flops, although comfortable shoes in plain sight, actually have a pronounced affect on the back because they cause stress on the arch, heel, and entire foot.
-Carry less baggage: a heavy handbag or messenger bag can contribute to a great deal of back pain. Opt for a light bag with minimal features on it that can contribute to the bag's overall weight.
-Sit with a proper posture: maintaining a proper posture is vital to decrease the chances of having a bad back.
-Place a pillow under your knees at night: the back feels a great deal of pressure during a sleep cycle. Therefore, it is important to slightly elevate legs to reduce lower back tension and get a good night's sleep.
-Listen to music: Music directly impacts the nervous system and the limbic system.
For the most part, acute pain associated with lower back injuries do improve over time. Back pain is caused by weak muscles that haven’t been fully developed over the life of the affected individual. More often than not, the most effective treatment option is exercise. However, every patient responds differently, so a relaxed treatment regime may be necessary depending on pain threshold.
Typically back problems are the culmination of many smaller problems. A strain is the most common occurrence, according to the Bonati Spine Institute. Patients typically describe a nuisance pain that has been with them for years. Old sports injuries or outdoor activities, such as gardening are the usual suspects. The Bonati Spine Institute recommends patients with back problems speak with their general practitioner to schedule an appointment with a spine specialist or chiropractor for a more accurate diagnosis.
