Alleviate Back Pain in between Chiropractic Visits

Lower back pain is one of the most common types of pain that people experience. It can be caused by a variety of things, including stress, poor posture, and injury. If you are experiencing lower back pain, you may find relief by visiting a chiropractor. However, if you cannot or do not want to visit a chiropractor on a regular basis, there are some things you can do to get relief between visits.



The first thing you can do to get relief from lower back pain is to ice the area. Apply an ice pack to the area for fifteen minutes, three times a day. Ice therapy helps to reduce inflammation and swelling in the area.

Another way to get relief between chiropractic visits is to use a heating pad. Heating pads help to relax the muscles and increase blood flow to the area. Place a heating pad on low heat on the area for fifteen minutes, three times a day.

You can also try massage therapy to get relief from lower back pain. Massage therapy helps to improve blood circulation and reduce inflammation and tension in the muscles.

Talk with your doctor as well at your next visit for more ideas on relief!
