You probably have experienced back pain at some point in your life. And, you probably know how stressful and painful it is to suffer from it from time to time. If you are in Midtown Manhattan, NY, we have good news for you. At Balanced Health Medical, we offer a variety of non-surgical pain relief methods to help your back pain. These integrated treatments remedy your back pain for the long term. The following ways can also improve your back pain.
The position you sleep at night can affect your back. For example, if you sleep in the wrong position or on a hard mattress that doesn’t provide support to your back, you could experience back pain. It is best to sleep in the following positions to help your back:
Place a pillow underneath your knees if you sleep on the back
If you are a side sleeper, you can help support your spine by placing a pillow between your knees
If you prefer to sleep on your stomach, put a pillow under your pelvis to help keep your spine in proper alignment
If you have to sit at work for long periods, consider using chairs that support the lower back. If you are unable to, you can use a cushion, pillow, or a rolled-up towel to ease back pain and better support the spine.
Your back pain may have started because you did not practice proper posture. By maintaining proper posture, the pressure is taken off of nerves in the spine and help reduce your back pain.
