How I Stopped Getting A Bad Back At Home

I suffered from a bad back for years. It used to ache all day long at work and then become unbearable by the time I got home. My doctor prescribed lots of medications that rarely made any difference. So, I decided to take a more holistic approach. My situation improved significantly when I started reading articles and relevant forum posts online.

These days, I don’t suffer from my back very often. However, that is because I’ve implemented a routine that stops the pain before it starts. My issues probably contributed to many other problems in my life. Indeed, the pain stopped me from becoming a blogger until recently because it hurt when I sat down at a desk. That is why I decided to take positive action. You should do the same thing if back pain is becoming a real issue in your life.


  • Taking a bath every evening

Firstly, it’s important you understand that hot water can help to make our muscles relax. I’m not sure if my back used to hurt because of physical stress or emotional issues. Either way, getting in the bath for an hour each evening when I return home from work has made a big difference. I use bubbles to make me feel even more relaxed, and I use the time to check my social media accounts. In truth, that sometimes means I spend many hours in the tub because I start chatting with friends. However, that is far from being a bad thing.

  • Stretching my back properly every morning

I discovered there were a lot of different stretching techniques for people with a bad back. After using some of them for a couple of months, the change was obvious. You can buy books online that contain diagrams depicting the best methods. Even so, most of the information you require has been published online already for free. Just make sure you take things slowly to avoid injury. I have to admit that I did pull a couple of muscles when I first started the process.

  • Sleeping in a comfortable bed every night

It might sound silly, but I used to fall asleep on the sofa all the time. My living room is pretty cozy, and so some nights I wouldn’t make it to bed at all. My partner decided it was about time we invested in a new bed and mattress. I don’t want to make recommendations on the best products because it is a personal decision. However, you’re sure to find a guide to choosing your mattresses firmness with a simple Google search. Just use the information available to make an educated decision.

  • Paying for professional treatment

As I said earlier, the medications my doctor prescribed didn’t make much difference. However, I now pay for professional back massages at least once every month. I have to be honest and say that I feel like a new woman every time I walk out of the parlor. Those of you who’ve never experienced an expert massage should make your booking as soon as possible. Once they’ve messed around with your back a few times, you’ll become hooked!

Whatever you choose to do, I hope my ideas will improve your back pain situation. When all’s said and done, the best techniques depend on the cause of your pain. Remember that you should always seek medical assistance if you’ve been in pain for a long time. There could be a more serious issue that is causing all the problems. You bad back should disappear relatively quickly if you take positive action.
