Spinal hygiene : The first thing to do for back pain is spinal hygiene, these are some exercises and tips for your everyday activities to take care of your back. You can buy some medications to avoid pain like ibuprofen or acetaminophen, but we would have to evaluate everything from the way you walk, sit, and of course, physical examination. So get started with spinal hygiene and go see your primary physician!
