Chronic Back Pain and Why It's Here To Stay

Chronic pain can persist for years if left untreated.

One of the most common types of chronic pain is lower back pain, which can be caused by activities like hiking or other outdoor activities that require extra physical effort.

Unfortunately, when it comes to chronic pain, simply resting doesn’t help relieve the symptoms.

Tip #1 - Utilize Cold Therapy

Cold therapy is an effective treatment option for those with chronic back pain. Ice packs are a simple, convenient and cost-effective way to manage back pain day to day without the aid of medications or other more invasive treatments.

Generally speaking, 15 minutes of cold therapy three times a day can provide relief from chronic back pain. It is usually recommended that an ice pack stay on the skin between 30 minutes to one hour max, with periodic breaks in between to allow for circulation.

Ice packs should also not be used directly on the skin; a cloth or towel should always be placed between the skin and the cold source.

Ice packs can be an effective tool in managing chronic back pain.

Cold therapy helps reduce alleviate muscle spasms, helping you stay active and comfortable during your daily life.

Outdoor activities such as hiking can help reduce back pain by stretching out the muscles and improving circulation. The fresh air and sunshine are also beneficial for your overall well-being, which may help with pain relief.

Tip #4 - Take a Shower or Hot Bath

Simply taking a hot bath or shower can provide back pain relief. The back muscles in your body can be relaxed by alternating between hot and cold water.

Warmth from a hot bath or shower aids in relieving back pain and stiffness.

Heat also increases blood flow, which helps the affected area receive vital nutrients and oxygen. This improved circulation speeds up your recovery and enhances overall muscle health.

As a drug-free method of pain management, taking a hot bath or shower is a popular choice for many people.
