Get rid of back pain – injury solicitors in Castle Bromwich
Back pain can seriously affect your day to day life, making it difficult to do the simplest of tasks and leaving you in almost constant pain. Back pain can be brought on by an injury or accident, but it can also develop over time if you have bad posture, spend too long sitting or working, or are simply predisposed to it.
When it comes to relieving back pain, the obvious answer for most people is painkillers. However, if you are suffering from chronic back pain you don’t want to be taking painkillers all of the time, as this can lead to addiction or even stop the painkillers working as they should. Here are some tips on easing your back pain.
- See a doctor. If there doesn’t seem to be any real reason for your back pain it is important that you see a doctor to rule out anything that needs medical treatment.
- Lie on a hard surface. A wooden floor would be ideal for this. This measure only provides short term relief but can help a lot whilst the back is in spasm.
- Look into your daily habits. If you sit for a long time at a desk then this can cause back pain, as can standing for long periods of time. Ask your employer about taking breaks to stretch and move around, or simply moving around more in your job.
- Change your mattress. Sometimes a change of mattress can be all you need to see an immediate improvement in your back pain. A sagging mattress can cause back ache without you even noticing.
- See a chiropractor. They will be able to assess your condition and treat the source of the pain rather than just prescribing medication until the pain eases.
