No one is immune to back pain since many factors contribute to it. However, back pain can be extremely limiting in terms of daily tasks, work, and even leisure activities. Rest assured: there are various ways of relieving the pain, either through natural methods or medication.

Relieving back pain with natural methods

Various strategies1can be used at home or require specialized techniques to reduce or eliminate your back pain.


If you experience back pain, changing a few lifestyle habits is likely to contribute to pain relief, for example:

  • Exercise regularly to strengthen your core muscles
  • Maintain a healthy weight
  • Refrain as far as possible from lifting heavy loads or apply appropriate techniques when necessary
  • Work on and improve your posture
  • Use an ergonomic workstation
  • Wear flat, comfortable shoes

Should the pain be resolved after making these few changes, it would be worth maintaining your new lifestyle to prevent future back pain.

At home

Some solutions are also available at home to significantly relieve your back pain, including:

  • Getting a massage or massaging yourself
  • Apply heat and cold to the painful area

Alternative medicine

In collaboration with your doctor, alternative treatments can be recommended when other solutions have not proved effective, including:

  • Massage therapy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Acupuncture
  • Yoga
  • Chiropractic treatments

However, if the pain stems from a known injury or if your back pain lasts for more than five days, it is essential to consult a health professional.
