September 24, 2008 by admin 

Anyone who is dealing with lower back pain knows how difficult and troublesome it can be, and the first thing on their mind is finding lower back pain relief.

Fortunately, there are quite a few effective options available to you when it comes to lower back pain relief. Back pain medication in particular is often recommended, and there are multiple over the counter and prescription medications that can be helpful in relieving your pain and addressing related symptoms.

There are two types of over the counter medications for lower back pain relief in particular that are very commonly suggested, acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. These are used to alleviate lower back pain, but are often not enough.

Just remember that prescription drugs really only work for a short period of time, and not only that but they are not even dealing with the root cause of your problem so once you get off of them, more than likely your back pain is going to return completely.

There is also the fact that you may become dependent on the drugs, which is a worry, and the frightening fact that there are some very unfavorable side effects that come from taking most medications. For this reason, even if it is your doctor who prescribes them to you, you want to make sure that you are familiar with the medication and that you are aware of any possible side effects before starting yourself on it.

Can I Get Relief the Natural Way?

If you want to find lower back pain relief but are not comfortable taking the more conventional, prescription medications that your doctor will probably suggest you use, you should know that there are also some terrific natural lower back pain relief treatments that you can opt for.

For instance there are certain exercises that you can do which will help you achieve lower back pain relief. One of the best exercises will work to gently stretch your back muscles, and you do it by lying on your back with your knees bent and start by slowly raising your left knee to your chest.

Now you want to press your lower back against the floor, hold for five seconds, relax and repeat the exercise with your right knee. Do about 10 of these exercises for each leg and then switch legs. Also keep in mind that while some exercises are specific for your back, it is also very important to stay active in general.
