When you have an achy back, it’s difficult, if not impossible to function. There are some natural cures if the pain is not intense or related to any other illness, rather just a pesky ache you would like to relieve.
Take a time out. Lie on the floor with a pillow under your head and one under your knees. Put your hands on your belly and breathe deep several times, big deep breaths, and hold the inhaled breath for a few seconds. Exhale for as long as you can letting every inhaled breath out of your body. Continue the practice for several minutes until you feel your back relax.
Sleeping in a position known as the “Lazy S” is often the best for an achy back. It entails the same positioning as your relaxed position; put a pillow under the head and one under the knees. This keeps the hamstring muscles from pulling and exerting pressure on the lower back. In the morning, roll carefully out of bed. Stretch to get the circulation going. Most of all, be sure you have a good supportive mattress.
