Back pain: The best way to know how to relieve back pain is to determine the cause. This requires medical evaluation. In the meantime, there are many options. Stretching, heat from a shower or heating pad (be careful to avoid getting burned), massage, manipulation/ alignment & acupuncture are some of those. Physical therapy, surgery & medications (i.e. NSAID's or muscle relaxants) are sometimes advised.
