5. Lower Heals

When you have a screaming pain in your back, try wearing low heels. Heels more than one inch can regulate an uneasy posture putting stress on your spine, hence aggravating your pain.

6. Get a Massage or Two

Oil massages are usually a great way to ease your body. Many times when your lower back is hurting it is because of pressure or in some cases the muscles have stiffened giving a hard time to your back and spine, so dip your fingers in olive oil and slowly massage your back, this will not only soften up your muscles but also give you a sense of ease making it easy for you to recover. Massage it with gentle strokes, not too hard.

7. How about a New Mattress

Another reason for aggravating back pain could be your mattress. Often old mattresses have lost all its softness and sometimes springs pop up, so be sure to change your mattress. When you sleep, make sure that your back gets a cushioned place to help it rest; hard mattresses are often the reason why your lower back pain doesn’t recover fast.

8. Painkillers as a Last Resort

If the above home remedies don’t work, feel free to consume pain killing supplements or acupuncture which is a recommended by doctors to reduce your pain.

Natural remedies are best. Do everything you can to alleviate your pain with medication. All drugs have side effects and should only be used as a last resort.
