Self Help Tips
- Take Frequent Breaks – Change positions regularly to give your muscles the rest needed to support you better when you return. If you’re sitting, stand up. If you’re bending over, stand and arch backward. A 60 second break every 20 minutes is ideal.
- Walk 30-minutes briskly on a flat surface – Its important to keep your body’s circulation working well. This helps to increase healing. If pain arises take breaks as needed.
- Apply Ice – Should your pain become severe, apply ice to the area for 20 minutes. Do not put directly on the skin.
