Complaints of low back pain continue to be prevalent and a major source of time off of work. While it might seem that taking time to rest and stay in bed will improve your pain, the truth is that continuing to be active is the best treatment.
The use of Tylenol for the treatment of low back has recently been called into question, which means that the standby is exercise. Exercise has been shown to be the most effective treatment in modulating low back pain and dysfunction. Physical therapy, functional therapy and strength training actively recruit the core muscles that stabilize the back. Working to improve the strength of the supporting muscles and relearning proper movement mechanics can help with carrying loads. These exercise techniques will help you decrease your pain and maintain your activity.
The next time your low back is acting up remember to stay active.
