We’re not sure if people’s lifestyles have become less active or if postures have become worse or what the problem is; all we know is, lower back pain is becoming more and more common. Ugh. Back pain is horrendous. It renders you completely immobile and that makes you feel totally useless. But the really annoying thing is, there doesn’t seem to be any single or certain cure for it. Everyone is different and so everyone has to go through their own period of trial and error, their fingers becoming even more crossed with each attempt.

Well, we have spoken to a few specialists, doctors and back pain survivors and come up with a list of overlooked ways to cure your back pain, all of which can be added to your day to day life without fuss.

Unleash your Inner Endorphin

You have no doubt heard the term endorphin thrown around whenever there is a topic of mental or physical well-being in question, but you may not know what it is. In short, endorphins are natural medicines created by your body that block pain signals from reaching your brain. The question then becomes, “how do you unleash these endorphins?” The easiest way is through exercise. Don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be strenuous. Even something as simple as stretching can release these endorphins. Obviously, the more aerobic the better, although meditation and massages have been proved to work too.

Sleep Like A Baby

This could sound like a silly thing to suggest, especially when your chronic back pain is the main cause of your sleep disorder. But getting a good sleep routine going is such a great way to address your back pain issues. That’s is where a few little tips and tricks can come in. First off, it could be about time you started focussing on supportive mattress options; everyone is different so find the one that suits you. Secondly, try sleeping with a pillow tucked between your thighs and knees, or under your hip. When you sleep on your side, you are forcing your spine to curve unnaturally, but by using a pillow where suggested, you are encouraging your spine to stay in a straight line. Something as simple as this could have a huge impact on your back problems.

Abs-olutely Amazing

A lot of the time, back pain is caused because of a lack of muscle support, which is why it is so important to exercise your core; your back and your abs. During the course of a normal day, these areas of your body don’t get the exercise they need in order to support your back properly. As such, you need to get into a habit of doing exercises that specifically target these areas. Don’t worry, these exercises can be done in about 15 minutes. Even sitting upright on an exercise ball for half an hour a day, or a more specialised bit of equipment, will have big results, so why not swap your office chair out for just 30 minutes each day and see the results for yourself.
