HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT IN THE LOWER BACK?
About one-third of individuals experience lower back pain at some point in their lives. Lower back pain (LBP) often arises following repetitive loading of the affected area. Those who have non-specific LBP experience pain in the back with no specific diagnosable cause. Common symptoms of LPB include dull ache and/or stiffness in the lower back, difficulty walking or standing up straight, muscle spasms or seizing of the back.
Bauerfeind’s high-quality supports or braces with medical-grade compression target the symptoms of lower back pain to provide relief and stability. Our back supports also help to improve mobility to allow you to continue to perform everyday activities without experiencing any restrictions to movement.
HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY LOWER BACK PAIN?
- A physiotherapist or exercise physiologist can help manage and treat your symptoms through exercise prescription to improve mobility, reduce pain and prevent further injury.
- Painkillers such as anti-inflammatories (e.g. Nurofen) may help to ease pain and inflammation.
- Heat Packs. Applying heat to the affected area may help to loosen tight muscles and increase blood circulation to the area.
- Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor or physiotherapist.
