Is it frustrating when you are suffering back pains and you seriously need a good therapy but you do not have the luxury of time to get a good massage? The truth is, a lot of people are suffering from back pains every day, especially those who are focused on their computer the whole day. But the good thing is that there are ways to relieve you of such troubles even if it is a temporary solution.
- Do Some Stretching: One reason why people tend to have body pains in general is because they lack exercise. This is true when it comes to back pains. The fastest and easiest way to remedy this is by doing some stretching on a daily basis. Doing so relieves spasms and muscle tensions which causes back pains.
- Take Vitamins: Taking a good amount of B Vitamins can help keep you from suffering chronic pain and also supports your nervous system. This also helps strengthen your immunity system. Having a good dose of Omega-3 fatty acids is also good because it has properties which can lessen inflammation in the body’s muscles.
- Have Decent Rest: The thing is that people tend to neglect the importance of having a good rest. The human body is frail and it gets strained on a daily basis regardless of what you are doing. This is why it is important to let your muscles rest for a while so it can recover. Try relaxing your back by lying on soft pillows. You can also roll a hot towel and place it under your neck to make it feel more comfortable.
- Use Ice: This is effective especially when you are injured since blood rushes fast to the injured area which can cause it to swell. By putting ice packs on it, you can reduce the swelling of the inflamed area. This also helps the body heal the injured area. Though ice can only numb the pain for a short time, it still does lessen the pain and helps you from experiencing them. Just be careful in how you are applying it. What you do is to dip a warm towel in a slightly hot water then wring out the excess. After that, place an ice pack or some ice cubes on it. Then immediately apply the towel over the inflamed body part for around twelve to fourteen minutes. You can repeat this process as many times as you need.
These tips may not permanently solve your back aches but then again, it should relieve you of your ailing for a short time.
