Short-Term Lower Back Pain Treatment

Short-Term treatments include exercises that you can do on your own and products that will help treat low back pain.

  • Compresses and wraps are a great way to help ease the pain. If the injury has just occurred we recommend using ice or heat for 15 minutes on and 15 minutes off. Ice is recommended for injuries that become inflamed or swollen. Heat treatments are used for chronic conditions to help relax the area.
    Doctor Recommended Product: Neck and Shoulder Wrap or Hot/Cold Compress
  • If you suffer from low back pain it is important that your desk is ergonomically fitted. A supporting roll provides support that you can take with you on the go.
    Doctor Recommended Product: Supporting Roll or Supporting Roll with Massage
  • Specialty pillows are a great tool to use for low back pain as the contour shape helps to align your body. The 4-position pillow is especially useful for low back pain as the half-moon shape fills the curvature of the low back.
    Doctor Recommended Product: 4-Position Pillow
  • Balance balls are a great tool to use to help reinforce proper posture. Instead of sitting on a chair at work try switching to a balance ball to strengthen muscles.
    Doctor Recommended Product: Balance Ball or a Posture Balance Cushion
