What should I do if I have Back Pain?

If you have back pain which is acute then it may be wise to consult your GP to have them check that nothing serious is causing the pain, especially if it continues for a few days and restricts your physical activities.

It is usually recommended that you consult your GP if you experience:

  • numbness or pins and needles in both legs; inside the tops of the thighs; around the rectum or genital area
  • incontinence
  • feeling unwell at the same time as having severe back pain
  • feeling unsteady on your feet
  • worsening of the back pain

Keep moving - our bodies are not designed to sit still
Keep moving - bed rest may cause a weakening of the muscles
Keep moving - even light exercise or stretching could help reduce pain

If you need to rest, you could try adopting the constructive rest position:
Lie on your back, on the floor, with your calves resting on a chair of the appropriate height and your head on a small cushion

Watch your posture! Ensure your back and neck are supported in whatever activity you are doing.

Seek help - perhaps booking in for a Complementary Therapy session would help you relax, easing off the tension in your body. You should find some helpful information on a range of therapies on this website. When choosing a practitioner, ensure they are fully qualified, insured and a member of a regulatory body (such as the CNHC or an association such as Bowen UK or the FHT).

When you have ascertained that it is safe for you to do so, you may wish to join a gentle exercise class, such as Pilates, T'ai Chi or Yoga, choosing a reputable, registered instructor; or take up your own activities such as cycling, swimming or walking.
