10 Lower Back Pain Treatments You Can Do At Home
8. Move Around
It might be hard to find motivation to move around a lot when back pain is present, but keeping daily activities up like making the bed, walking the dog and going to work may reduce pain. Reicherter says, “Our spines are like the rest of our body; they are meant to move.” Stay mobile once the back pain starts to subside by participating in gentle aerobic exercise such as walking, swimming, and bicycling. Be careful not to overdo it and cause additional pain. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes with plenty of arch support to avoid aggravating your back even more.
