    To treat back pain naturally, there are several ways can be applied. Get enough exercise, select the type of exercise you like so that the nutrients to the spinal discs can run smoothly and sufficiently and do not forget to rest and take a break by lying down. If you work in a way that sitting for too long then change your sitting position as often as possible so that the muscles do not become rigid and accelerate the blood circulation.

    You can ask for help to your wife or your husband to massage your back with warm balm before you sleep. If you frequent heavy lifting from the ground then bend your knee before you lift it, a common practice is to remove the goods directly from a standing position but without bending the knees so that your spinal muscles will be working too hard. These practices can be applied in a light to medium back pain, if you are suffered a severe back pain then I suggest you to go to your physician to get the proper treatment.
