Now, you must be wondering which exactly are the symptoms and reasons of your back problems.
That´s why we are going to give you a list of possible reasons that will help you determine why you´re suffering from such pains and how to eliminate them!
- Pharmaceutical drugs
There are a lot of products in the market that often have adverse side effects and cause irreparable damage to our backbone. Keep that in mind and try to avoid using pharmaceuticals.
- Bad posture
It´s important to maintain good posture while sleeping, which should be face up. When we sleep face down, or on a side of one of our shoulders, we put our spine into a bad posture.
Don´t let your muscles be tense while you´re sleeping; in order to achieve that, avoid at all costs mattresses that are either too soft or too hard. They can be harmful.
When we smoke, nicotine makes our tissue deteriorate.
When we are overweight, our spine gets overburdened due to the pressure.
- Bad posture and bad way of walking
Both factors contribute to having intense back pains.
Which are the remedies to alleviate the pain?
- Cold and hot water in turns, applied to the areas of pain.
- 15-minutes-long exercises concentrated on that particular area
- Ice cubes and then afterwards hot compresses every four days.
