At first, a stiff back may not seem like that big of a deal. However, if this ailment lingers, there’s a good chance it’ll impact your life in a variety of ways.

Fortunately, there are many ways to treat the discomfort associated with a stiff back. As you experiment with the following treatment strategies, you’re likely to find one that brings you the relief you’re seeking:

·      Heat: Applying heat to your back helps promote blood flow, which in return relaxes the muscles. Doing this for 10 to 15 minutes at a time can loosen your back.

·      Ice: It may not be as comfortable as heat, but it can reduce inflammation and numb any pain you’re experiencing. Just the same as heat, 10 to 15 minutes of ice can go a long way in bringing you relief.

·      Keep moving: This doesn’t mean you should play tackle football or mow the lawn, but too much rest can make your stiffness worse. Light activity, such as walking or yoga, can go a long way in keeping you loose.

·      Massage therapy: With a focus on your back, a massage can relax muscle tissue and reduce spasms. When combined with other therapies, such as those listed above, this is one of the most effective ways to treat your discomfort.

The next time your back tightens up, consider experimenting with one or more of these treatment methods.
