Strugging with back pain?

At Pro-fit21 we undertsnad that you can get really bad pains from working out, as well as pain relief form working out. All depends on how much you do and how you do it. As we know there are special positions and stances that we have to do when lifting something such as heavy weights. If you do them wrong you can pull a muscle or tear a ligament.

To help you out, we’ve come up with a few tips to help with certain body pains:

  • Sleep Better for Back Pain Relief

Back pain can make sleeping hard. It can be a constant cycle between back pain and sleep. When you don’t get enough sleep, your back pain may increase. A poor sleeping position can also irritate back pain.

Tip: Try lying on the side of your body. Place a pillow between your knees, this will keep your spine in a neutral position and relieve pressure on your back. If you prefer to sleep on your back, slide a pillow under your knees. (Make sure to sleep on a comfortably firm mattress.)

  • Back Pain Medication

There are two different types of over-the-counter pain relievers, that you can find at any local pharmacy, that often help with back pain. They are: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and acetaminophen. Sadly, they both have some side effects, which means some people may not be able to take them.

Tip: Contact your doctor before taking pain relievers. But remember meds don’t fix everything, don’t expect medication alone to solve your back-pain problems. Research has shown that, you’ll probably need more than one type of treatment to help with the pain.
