Ask Super Doctors

Dr. Akash Bajaj, MD (Doctor Profile)

Question: Are there home remedies for back pain?

Answer: Yes. After you have a diagnostic workup to rule out more serious causes, potential remedies include sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, or sitting upright with relaxed shoulders and feet flat on the floor rather than hunching over your mobile device. Regularly xercising your core muscles is extremely important; they supply strength and flexibility while supporting your back. For mild pain, ice the area for 20 minutes several times a day to reduce inflammation; a few days later, switch to heat to relax the muscles and increase blood flow.
