    Get an orthopaedic bed. Drink warm water ALWAYS or hot drinks (like tea, coffee, chocolate drinks).

    Stretch, exercise, retrain your back muscles and smoke a bowl for the pain (much better for you then pain meds or tylenol) smile

    Yoga has really helped someone I know.  Keeping flexible is key.

    For over ten years I suffered chronic back pain and was heading for the operating theatre in the hope this would be the final solution. I never met the 'knife', because a casual acquaintance told me his story.  Both he and his brother had visited a natural therapy healer and experienced fantastic outcomes. Robbie for a broken toe and his brother for back pain.  The therapist was a martial arts healer, who had studied this aspect of his martial arts in China.

    Paul Brennan, the healer, explained, for my case, the healing was all based on muscle amnesia. He would work muscles that (and I mean work them) had been holding me in the wrong position. The current 'Gate Theory' works on a similar premises - stop the nerves sending the brain the same message and you will reduce the pain. All I know is, after ten debilitating years of pain, I visited Paul once a week for three weeks and eleven years later I'm still pain free.

    For mild pain, I have to stretch and do a series of exercises every day otherwise the pain will return. If you sit a lot, a good chair always help!

    I will go for acupuncture. It will definitely help to relieve the pain. That is what I did when my wife encountered extreme pain on her stomach. Just one treatment, she is feeling better.

    I have chronic back pain and can usually tell when my back is going to go out. When this happens, I make sure to take some ibuprofen, stretch out a little and then try my best to relax. Now I have 4 kids so that becomes a challenge. As long as you can get some meds into your system and do hot and cold compresses on the area, it will heal faster. When your back is in pain there are poisons running through your muscle that make it hurt, when cold is applied for 15 mins it constructs the muscles and the pain doesnt go away. After the 15 mins of cold do about 30-45 mins of heat and it will help the muscle to relax and get the poisons flowing out of the area. Hope this helps.

    I work with a number of spine surgeons who hear this complaint often. Believe it or not, to a doctor they do not want to cut on you unless it is absolutely necessary. They prefer to have you attempt to alleviate the pain using some different techniques first. Meds are an option, but to some degree the least positive unless a muscle relaxer is used for almost immediate help - then do the other things.

    One stretch that works for me - standing in the shower with hot as I can stand water hitting the most affected part of my back as hard as I can make it, I first swing my left leg forward and back, just the weight of my leg hanging and slowly swinging it. Then I swing my other leg in the same fashion. I end up feeling a lot better.
