How to treat Back Pain?

Over the counter pain medications and topical pain relief ointments like ARI Medical Flexall 454 Maximum Strength Pain Relieving Gel can provide temporary relief from the pain. Taking rest is helpful but should not be more than a couple of days, too much rest can sometimes prove to be counterproductive and might worsen the pain. It is believed that TENS encourages the body to release endorphins that block pain signals to the brain helping in back pain relief. Anti-depressants can help if the patient is going through depression. Massage therapy can also reap good results in case of acute back pain but it must be carried out by professional therapists. A back brace like the Acu-Life 360 Degree Hot and Cold Back Therapy Brace or BioMedical BioKnit Full Back Conductive Vest can help in alignment of the spine while providing compression to reduce inflammation in the back and thereby reduce pain. Those people who work for longer periods in a chair must use lumbar support cushions like the Bodyline Back-Huggar Lumbar Support Cushion for proper support.
