Self Care for Back Pain

There are some good advices for self-care for low back pain, such as short rest period, activity modification, heat or ice therapy and over-the-counter pain medications.

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, explains when we are doing an activity for so long, we have back problems and we want to rest. “If you’re doing a certain activity and you feel that you’re starting to have back problems, just change that activity, do something else,” he says.
