Put heat on any back spasms. Make a warm compress or get a heating pad and just relax. It can soothe the muscles and relax you. Stress can be a large part of back pain, so just laying down and trying to relax can end up doing wonders for you.
Do you suffer from constant back pain? Don't twist too much during your daily activities! You could be lifting heavy items or just doing light housework, when the wrong body twist will cause you pain and injury. If you participate in any sports, you should be aware of your movement as it affects your spine; if you experience discomfort or tightness, you should immediately slow down or stop.
Be careful when lifting. Always use proper posture when lifting. Lift from the knees. Lifting heavy object improperly can really do quite a number on your back. To avoid causing potentially permanent damage, use caution. If the object is too heavy to lift request assistance or use a moving dolly.
