These instances and more are a few of the reasons why so many analgesics exist for those who opt for instant relief. But actually, sometimes what you need for back pain is not medication, sometimes it is just plain rest.
A rest is as good as a cure in mild cases of back pains as when you strain your muscles. Muscles are strained when there has been lack of activity or exercise. The shock at doing things which the muscles are not accustomed to puts too much pressure on them. This happens when you lift heavy objects which your body is not accustomed to.
Sometimes when weight is not evenly distributed to the body and the backbone is forced towards one direction only and this is painful when it is straightened out. It is good to even out the weight of the objects you carry in both hands to prevent slipping of your disks as what happens in slipped and herniating disks. In mild forms of slipped and herniating disks.
A good rest is as good as a cure because it allows the natural healing of the body to take place. Resting the back reduces or eliminates the external pressures you put on them which more than often are what causes pain.
Back pains may also be caused by emotional stress. Sometimes, emotional stress is treatable by a good rest. Perhaps this is the wisdom of sleeping over your problems because a rest is as good as a cure in most cases of anxiety, depression or frustration and simple fatigue.
But sometimes it does happen that for one to say a rest is as good as the cure, he or she may need to take some analgesics to be able to sleep and in his or her sleep the way to healing is started.
One can never say when back pains should strike anyone but to prevent any occurrence of back pain, maintaining proper posture, keeping a proper weight through a well balanced diet and exercise are all advisable. Listening to the body through signs and pains will definitely give you a good rest.
