Avoid intense exercise and physical activity, particularly heavy lifting and trunk twisting, if there is acute back pain.

Try Rhustox, Ruta, Colchicum, Arnica remedys in 200 potency . These medicines often provide significant benefits.

Try alternating between hot and cold packs. Some doctors recommend changing from hot to cold every 3 minutes and repeating this sequence three times. Others believe ice packs should be applied first. This routine should be done two or three times during the day.

Supportive back belts, braces, or corsets may help some people temporarily, but these products can reduce muscle tone over time and should be used only briefly.

Exercise, diet, stress, and weight all have a significant influence on back pain. Changing certain lifestyle factors can help reduce, and possibly prevent, backaches.Yoga relieves low back pain better than conventional exercise
