Back pain hurts!
Do not panic! Back Pain is very common and normally improves in a few days. Pain in the lower back can be felt anywhere along the spine – from the neck down to the hips. In most cases the pain isn't caused by anything serious and will usually get better over time.
One can manage lower back yourself by keeping mobile and perhaps taking over-the-counter painkillers. Most back pain usually gets better on its own.
The symptoms of back pain can vary from person to person. Back pain may come on suddenly, perhaps after you’ve lifted something heavy, or it may come on gradually over time. The pain may feel really bad, or may be milder. Some people with back pain also have pain down one leg, or into the buttock or groin. This is sometimes called sciatica.
There are a number of things you can do to help relieve back pain:
Do exercises and stretches
You may apply topical heat or cold treatments to your back.
If you look after your back, you can greatly reduce your risk of getting back pain. The following things can help:
When lifting objects, bend your knees and hips, not your back.
Keep a good posture.
