How to reduce back pain-easy ways

Taking notice of blog commentator is a rare instance these days, but in every decade there is an example of exception. Here we have Dr Bharti Kashyap, who not only took notice of a female commentator some jayanti from her previous post, but also fulfilled her demand of prescribing for cure of back pain. Thanks to Madam Kashyap and also her para medic staff aamir for valuable advice and posture curtsy (in photograph) for our readers.

1. Sleeping Positions - Sleeping positions that reduce back pain

Sleeping on your side

By making simple changes in your sleeping position, you can take strain off your back. If you sleep on your side, draw your legs up slightly toward your chest and put a pillow between your legs. Use a full-length body pillow if you prefer.
This position may be particularly helpful if you have osteoarthritis in the spine, spinal stenosis — a narrowing in the spine — or hip pain.

Sleeping on your back
If you sleep on your back, place a pillow under your knees to help maintain the normal curve of your lower back। You might try a small, rolled towel under the small of your back for additional support. Support your neck with a pillow.This position may be helpful if you have low back pain.

Sleeping on your abdomen

Sleeping on your abdomen can be hard on your back. If you can't sleep any other way, reduce the strain on your back by placing a pillow under your pelvis and lower abdomen. Use a pillow under your head if it doesn't place too much strain on your back. If it does cause strain, try sleeping without a pillow under your head.
This position may be helpful if you have degenerative disease or a herniated disk in the central portion of your spine.
2. Ergonomic Chair
Back pain relief: Ergonomic chair
If you work at a desk, your choice of desk chair is important. For back pain relief, a properly fitted ergonomic chair is generally the best choice. An ergonomic chair will help you maintain correct posture and provide maximum support for your back.
