How Do I Relieve My Lower Back Muscle Pain?
An estimated 80% of people experience back problems at some point in their lives, with lumbar back pain being by far the most common. Overuse, underuse, injuries, structural imbalances, tight or weak muscles, degenerative changes and more can also lead to low back pain and muscle spasm. Note that the involuntary contraction of a muscle spasm is actually a secondary response to some other injury. Therefore, lower back muscle spasm treatment involves addressing the underlying cause. Quick treatment for lower back muscle strain and other sources of discomfort is important for preventing the development of chronic low-back pain or recurrent or severe lower back muscle spasms.
Rest for Back Treatment:
A period of rest is needed to cure a pulled back muscle. But rest is a relative term—any period of bed rest should be limited and moderate exercise can actually be quite helpful. Of course, one should stay away from taxing activities such as gardening or weight lifting.
Back Brace for Treating Back Problems:
Wearing a back brace might also be a component of treatment for a pulled lower back muscle. The added support eases stress on the lumbar spine, giving the back time to recover from strain or stress. But as is the case with bedrest, too much of a good thing can be detrimental. One should only wear a belt for relief of pulled back muscles intermittently—long-term use can actually cause one’s muscles to weaken, leading to additional problems. This lower back belt is the perfect brace for you if you’re suffering from lumbar muscle weakness, pulls or strains, spasms, or chronic back pain.
Exercises and Prevention for Lower Back Muscle Strain:
When it comes to how to treat lower back muscle strain, prevention is the best remedy. When lifting heavy objects, it is a good idea to wear an industrial low back belt like this for prevention/treatment of back muscle pain. We also offer a lifting back brace with straps for even more support. Other steps of treatment for back muscle strain include ice therapy to reduce inflammation and/or heat therapy to relax and sooth one’s muscles and joints; the enhanced blood flow can also help to heal a torn back muscle. Wearing a low back brace for ice and cold therapy can simplify this process. Exercising good posture is another component of achieving lower back pain muscle or spine discomfort relief. You can quickly find out if you have good posture here by taking the BraceAbility posture quiz. If you need improvements on your posture check out our brace made specifically for posture correction.
Physical therapy is another common approach for longer-term treatment for lower back pain muscle strain. A doctor or physical therapist can recommend lower back muscle strain exercises and stretches to improve the strength and flexibility of one’s core, which is beneficial for reducing stress on the back and preventing another injury. If conservative methods of treatment are ineffective and/or one is experiencing severe lower back muscle pain, surgery may be needed, depending upon the source of your discomfort. After surgery, you may need to wear a postoperative back brace.
