The common mistake when dealing with back pain

How to get rid of back pain?

When your back is bothering you, that is all that is on your mind. But there is a world of difference between temporary relief and solving the problem long term.

The traditional wisdom was to get plenty of rest and pop a few painkillers, and intuitively this feels right.

When you have back pain you can feel scared that any movement might cause further damage. Not only that, but the quick release of painkillers can come as a much-needed relief.

But recent research is changing our thinking. It turns out that in most cases, more movement is what is needed (not less), and that painkillers are being relied on too heavily.

So what actually works?

Back Pain in Winter

Winter back pain can really slow you down and ruin your day.

Back pain is bad enough at any time of year, but it is often worse during the colder months.

Though the scientists struggle to explain the exact reasons, anecdotal evidence seems to back this up.

It is plausible that conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis would be affected by the weather, but most other back pain can be caused by a variety of reasons, and science doesn’t always pinpoint the exact reason why.

However, two things tend to be true in winter. Mood is often lower, and people tend to exercise less.Both these aspects are thought to have an impact on levels of discomfort.

Whatever the real causes, there are ways that you can find relief
