Back Pain: 6 Different Ways to Fix Your Low BACK PAIN (…Without Surgery or Taking Pills)

My name is Stephen Dunn – a low back pain expert from Austin, Texas and in this article I would like to show you 6 “different” ways of finding relief from low back pain that I give to patients at my clinic.

I say different, because they are ways that don’t include the standard “painkillers and rest” option that seems to be recommended a lot these days.

If you are suffering with back pain and want to find relief from it – without risking surgery – then all of these methods are proven to help:

1. Avoid Sitting Cross-Legged

Keep both feet flat on the floor. Your spine isn’t designed to twist or turn for extended periods. Sitting in a cross-legged position contributes to back pain.

2. Sleep with a Pillow between Your Knees

This might be difficult at first, but if you can persist, it lowers the amount of rotation/ twisting happening in your spine if you sleep on your side. The pillow keeps your spine in a better position and this will reduce tension in your lower back – helping you to wake up in the morning with less pain and improved mobility.

3. Avoid Sleeping on Your Stomach

Sleeping on your stomach is the fastest way to inflict damage to your spine/lower back. Avoid this position at all costs.

4. Change Your Mattress Every 5-6 Years

I get asked “Should I change my mattress?” just about every day. It’s almost impossible to answer, as everyone has a different response to changing the mattress or they sleep on. What I can say is this: if you haven’t changed your mattress in the last five years, then it’s about time that you did as you’re unlikely to be getting the support for your lower back that would really benefit you.

5. Stay Hydrated

This is a BIG office worker mistake that could be zapping your energy and increasing lower backache. One really simple way to avoid this is to cut out the stuff that makes you dehydrated in the first place. Things like excessive coffee, tea, alcohol and energy drinks – can dehydrate you and make you more likely to suffer from back pain.

6. Daily Lower Back Exercise Rituals: Gyrotonic and Pilates

If you can get into the routine of doing simple stretches and strengthening of your lower back muscles, you will benefit through your 50’s, 60’s and beyond.

In the same way that you brush your teeth twice per day to keep them clean and avoid pain, you need to look at working on your back in a similar way.

…Now, what I can’t ever promise you is that any or all of those things will work for you. I just know that if you and I got chatting and you asked me for some tips that can bring significant relief from back pain, I’d suggest all of those that you’ve just read.
