When you experience back pain, it can be detrimental to your daily life. Depending on where the pain is radiating from, the intensity of the pain, and how long you have been experiencing it, the treatments can be different. Luckily, there are ways that you can deal with it and make the pain easier to handle. By combining multiple methods, some people find complete relief from their back pain. To help you overcome the pain that you experience in your back, here are 5 effective ways that you can find relief from your pain.

1. Look at How You’re Sleeping

When you go to sleep, you spend around 8 hours in the same position with minimal changes to that sleeping position. For most people, this is where minor back pains begin. Because of that, the first place that you should look when you’re determining how to fix your back pain is at your bed and the position that you sleep in. Poor mattresses can make back issues worse since worn springs that dig into pressures points in your back and cause your back muscles to tighten unevenly which can pull your spine in opposite directions.


The position that you sleep in also has a huge effect on your spine since it could pull your spine out of its normal resting curvature. To avoid this, try not to sleep on your stomach since it causes the middle of your back to develop an unnatural curve. It pushes the tailbone up and the neck up. It also forces your head to turn to one side which leads to upper back and neck issues. If you’re a side sleeper, you should sleep with a pillow tucked between your legs to make sure that your spine stays in a healthy position. Sleeping on your back in the healthiest position for your spine if you have a good mattress. For upper back pain, you might need to get a new pillow or a pillow that is meant for your specific sleeping position.

2. Practice Good Posture

Another reason that you could be experiencing back pain is because of poor posture. A lot of people around the world have postures that contribute to back pain. If you have poor posture, the weight is distributed unevenly on your body. Too much weight might rest on the neck or on the lower spine. A good posture distributes your weight exactly where your body is most capable of handling it. A good posture means that you stand with your shoulders pulled back, your tummy tucked slightly and your back straight. Practice having a good posture both while you’re standing and while you’re sitting. At first, your muscles might feel fatigued while holding a good posture since you aren’t used to it yet. But, over time, your muscles will gain their strength back, and you’ll be able to walk, stand, run, and sit with royalty.

3. See a Doctor

Sometimes, home remedies don’t work. Just because they don’t work for you doesn’t mean that you’ve done anything wrong. It can be that your specific back pain isn’t something that can be fixed without a doctor interjecting. Because of this, it’s important that you recognize some of the signs that your back pain needs a doctor. If you’re experiencing tingling in your limbs associated with your back pain, it could indicate that you need a disc replacement surgery which is something that cannot be fixed by a home remedy. If your back pain is so severe that it interrupts your daily activities, you should also go in to be looked at by a professional.


Back pain can be serious. If it’s not treated properly, it could lead to further pain and even paralysis. Be careful with how you’re treating your case of back pain. If it does not go away by sleeping properly and fixing your posture, you might have something more serious. Make sure that you listen to what your body is telling you.
