10 Subtle Tips to Help Relieve Your Back Pain

Get rid of Lower Back Pain

2. Take an anti-inflammatory medication

If your pain isn’t chronic and more on the order of usual aches and pains, take over-the-counter pain medication or anti-inflammatories such as aspirin or ibuprofen.

This shouldn’t be a cure-all, as many medications of this kind can be damaging to your liver or kidneys.

As most medications of this kind should only be used roughly two weeks at a time, you’ll want to make sure you consult your doctor or seek alternative options for more chronic pain.

3. Lift Weights Properly

If your injury began as simple muscle strain, it may be time to try some new ways of lifting.

When you’re at the gym or at a job, always make sure you’re lifting with your legs—that is, lifting with your knees bent and your back straight.

Avoid twisting when you’re lifting anything heavy, and make sure you carry the object or weight close to your body.

If you’re finding you have the most trouble while doing your usual strength workout, consult with a personal trainer or take a class to improve your form to prevent injury.
