Due to my recent out of town trip, I am currently suffering from a severe back pain. I was diagnosed with straightening of lower lumbar lordosis years ago and it is for that reason that I am being prohibited from staying in the same position for more than 30 minutes. I should be continuously moving or at least changing positions at least every 5 minutes. We rode a bus on our way back to our city and unfortunately, the bus is just an ordinary one and since we were in a hurry to go home, we were forced to take the first bus which had arrived on the bus station. The end result is here, I am now currently suffering from a back pain. I can hardly move and is unable to bend down on my knees whenever I need to pick something from the floor. This has prevented me from doing my normal day to day routine which is really a hassle. Now, I've learned my lesson, I won't be compromising my health condition even for any reason. I can't even sleep comfortably because of the pains.
I've taken a couple of pain medicines to reduce the pain and had my back massaged with hot ointment. This is not the first time it happened, so I might be enduring this pain for two or more days. As I have been dealing with my back pains for years now, more or less I already knew the precautionary measures that I need to observe when managing back pains.
First, I have to avoid being stationery for a long time as I have previously mentioned. Second, I need to refrain from wearing high heels, third, I should always be watching my posture and lastly, I have to do stretching most of the time. Luckily, I never smoke as this is really bad for those suffering from osteoporosis or other bone problems. Also, I have an ideal weight which is another plus factor. Being overweight would alleviate the back problem so I'm just fortunate that I never get fat eversince.
Now, I am just waiting for the pain to actually subside and I just keep on moving so at least the pain would lessen if not totally eliminated at once. It's good to know how to manage the pains if you have one. Also, taking a Turmeric tea regularly would also be of great help as this could reduce inflammation and pains.
Maybe I should also be buying a back support. I better start looking for a good one now. :)
