Lower Back Pain

How can I treat my lower back pain?

Lower back pain treatment depends on the exact cause of the lower back pain. Furthermore, the evaluation and management will depend on the underlying background health status and the activity level of the person.

Avoiding activities that stress the back, taking over-the-counter pain relievers, and applying ice or heat are often all that is needed for most lower back pain relief. It is generally recommended that you continue with your regular activities as much as possible to promote recovery from your sore lower back. You should try to continue with light daily living activities and walking as is comfortable. However, it is best that you do avoid activities that make your back pain worse.
