There’s no doubt about it: Back pain is brutal.

It limits your ability to function and sometimes sleep.

It’s miserable, but the solution might be easier than you think.

Four things you can do (right now) to make your back feel better are:

Decide That It’s Time to Step Away from the Computer

The average person spends nine hours a day in front of the computer. Ideally, you should spend no more than an hour. If that’s not possible, you should make sure you’re getting up and moving around every 30-45 minutes.

Make Training Your Core a Priority

It’s no secret that a strong core helps relieve back pain. By taking the time to properly train and stretch your back and abdominal muscles, you can reduce or eliminate unwanted back pain.

Stop Sleeping on Your Stomach

Sleeping on your stomach puts pressure on your spine. By sleeping on your side or back, you allow your spine to rest in an anatomical position.

Get Up and Move Around

A sedentary lifestyle is never a good thing. Laying in bed or on the sofa all day will cause pain to worsen. If there’s pain associated with movement, an over-the-counter pain medication can help.


You now know four things you can do to make your back feel better. Use any, all, or any combination of them to help reduce or eliminate back pain. If you still can’t get relief, please don’t hesitate to contact Anderson Chiropractic.
