What should I do if I have lower back pain? Is there any way to alleviate it?

If you suffer from low back pain, you can't do many things. You can only lie down in bed. Sometimes it's difficult to turn over. Therefore, I will introduce some methods to relieve low back pain in case readers need it.

What should I do if I have sudden low back pain?

Step 1:Avoid bending or further changing the waist posture to prevent the lumbar intervertebral disc from further compressing the spinal nerves.
Step 2: Emergency painkillers, such as ibuprofen and paracetamol, are effective ways to relieve acute pain;
Step 3: Lie flat on a hard bed. Bed rest can reduce the pressure on the upper and lower vertebrae, thereby reducing the pressure on the intervertebral discs and reducing low back pain.

Tips for daily waist protection

1.Wear a waist girdle/waist protector

It is generally recommended that you wear your girdle/waist support whenever you get out of bed and move around, and don't take it off if you feel uncomfortable. Of course, the waist protector mentioned here should be a medical device, not the kind that is just worn around the waist.

Wearing a waistband can keep the lumbar vertebrae in a fixed position from the outside, preventing lumbar vertebrae movement from squeezing the intervertebral discs and further aggravating the condition.

The waist circumference generally sold in pharmacies is sufficient to meet the protection requirements.

2. Try to sleep on a hard bed

The normal human spine has four normal physiological curvatures.

Changes in the normal curvature of the human body will affect the pressure between the vertebrae. If you lie flat on a soft bed and your waist sinks downwards with the mattress, you will passively bend over. In this case, the lumbar spine lacks sufficient support, which can easily lead to aggravation of lumbar disc herniation.

A relatively hard bed can help maintain the spine in a more normal position, while giving the spine sufficient support to avoid abnormal curvature of the spine as much as possible

3. Rest is important, maybe more important than taking medicine

Do not do heavy physical labor for at least 3 months, do not maintain a certain posture for a long time, do not bend over for a long time, play with mobile phones, etc., and try to keep your waist straight while sitting, otherwise it will be impossible to control the disease.

4. Hot compress

You can apply a wet hot towel to the painful area in the morning and evening for at least 30 minutes each time. Be careful to keep the temperature (heat) constant, but don't burn yourself.

5. Medication can be used to relieve low back pain

It is recommended to go to the spine specialist of the hospital. The doctor will usually prescribe some medicine to relieve low back pain (such as Celebrex, Mobico, Lexan, Mirena, Methylcobalamin, etc.).

6. Back exercises are very important

The stronger you make your lower back muscles, the less likely you are to suffer from lower back pain. It is recommended to exercise regularly when there is no pain, such as Xiaoyan Fei, lying down stretching, squats and other exercises to strengthen your lower back.
