Improving your posture can assist in alleviating muscle tension which then will alleviate back pain. Pay attention to your posture throughout the day when you are sitting, standing, lying in bed, and moving around and compare it to examples of proper posture to make any adjustments needed that may correlate with your back pain.
A regular or therapeutic massage is a great way to alleviate back pain. It will not only relax your muscles but can work out any kinks that may be contributing factors to the pain you are experiencing. Some chiropractic offices offer massages specifically geared towards back pain which would be the most efficient option.
Use a Foam Roller
Foam rollers are a quick and easy way to alleviate your back pain from the comfort of your own home! Consider purchasing a foam roller that has a vibrating feature to enhance the benefits even further. Using a foam roller can provide similar benefits to stretching and exercising on a regular basis along with assisting to reduce inflammation and relieving knots that may be in your muscles.
Change Up Your Shoes
