Question Back Problems - April 26th 2012, 11:42 PM

So I have back issues and I have a poor posture that I'm trying to fix. Recently, my lower back has been hurting so bad and it's getting to the point where I can't sit and do my homework or anything without it hurting so bad.

I haven't done anything to hurt it, it's just how it is. And it hurts.

Any ways to make the pain stop and possibly fix my posture? I already took a Tylenol today.

Hey man , you can hurt you back by simply picking up a sock off the floor. I'm not a doctor, but have dealt with back issues before. How back is the pain? Can you touch you toes?

Your back problem could be a simple strain, something more serious, or simple weak core muscles. If you can describe the pain that would be great.

If its a simple strain i could suggest a few workouts, however if its something serious as a herniated disc you should see a doctor.

It also could be from the way you sleep or your mattress.

Alright, here is a list of things that help most backaches:

Soaking in as hot of water in a tub as you can stand for 20-30minutes
Using IcyHot Rub
Using heating pads for 15-20 minutes on, 15-20 off, repeat
Using Hot pads that stick on your skin. You leave on for 8 hours but have to watch for skin irritation. These worked amazingly when I had a pinched nerve in my neck.
[However, if putting heat on it hurts more, then switch to ice for 15-20 minutes on, 15-20off, repeat]
Ibuprofen might be a bit more effective as it has the properties to reduce any inflammation you may have.
And drinking plenty of water can help your muscles loosen up.
