How to Keep Back Pain From Messing With Your Sexual Life?

I am sure that most of us have experienced back pain at one time or another. However, if you are still unsure about how to deal with your back pain after having had sexual activity, then read on.

There are many things which could be done to alleviate your back pain but it depends upon what kind of pain you have. For instance, if you have sciatica (pain in the leg), then there is no way out except physical therapy.

You need to go through various exercises such as walking on a treadmill or even swimming. If however, you have lower back pain, then the following tips might help you:

1) The most important thing to do, which in my opinion should be your first priority is to consult a physician.

He can give you the exact cause of your pain and suggest means by which you can avoid them in future.

2) Always warm up before engaging in any kind of physical activity.

There are various ways in which you can do this. For instance, you can start with simple stretches and then take a stroll before engaging in your favorite sport.

You will be able to enjoy your favorite sport without any hindrance.

3) If you have had a specific incident which has led to back pain, then you must avoid any activity which involves the same kind of movements you did at that time.

For instance, if you were bending down or reaching for things at your office, then you must avoid doing the same thing again.

4) If you are a smoker, or have been smoking for quite some time, then I suggest that you quit before it is too late.

5) Try to engage in at least 30 minutes of physical activity on a daily basis.

This might seem difficult to do however; if you make this a routine for about 3 months then it will become much easier for you and will eventually become a part of your life.

6) Even if you are not having any back pain, I suggest doing physical activity on a daily basis.

At least 30 minutes a day. You will be glad you did in the long run.

Will Getting Married Ever Get My Back Pain?

If you are experiencing back pain then please stop reading this post right now and keep on reading the above mentioned topic. If however, getting married is your idea of a joke then please continue reading this post.

However, this is not to say that getting married will without doubt get rid of your back pain. There are various ways in which you can go about dealing with your back pain.

For instance, if you are experiencing a lot of pain then it might be better to visit a physician who might prescribe some pain killers for you on a temporary basis. You should also keep yourself hydrated by drinking at least 8-10 glasses of water daily.

If your pain is not so extreme then you can try some simple ways of alleviating the pain such as:

1) Keep yourself engaged in various activities which will keep your mind away from the pain.

Watch your favorite movies or shows to keep yourself occupied. It is best if you can laugh while doing this activity since it will help you to relax a bit more.

In addition, it is best if you can keep yourself occupied by watching comedies.

2) Try to engage in moderate physical activity.

This can help you burn out your extra energy and keep your mind off the pain you are experiencing. However, if you are experiencing a lot of lower back pain then I suggest that you avoid these types of activities for now.

3) Try to engage in some yoga poses which will help relax your muscles and get rid of any built up tension.

4) Try to perform various stretches in the morning and evening.

Stretching can help you increase your flexibility and decrease your muscle tension, both of which will lead to a decreased likelihood of you experiencing pain. In addition, it is best if you can try to practice these stretches on a daily basis.

5) Avoid sitting in one place for too long as this can also cause back pain to flair up.

Get up at least once every hour and walk around.

6) Get a massage!

Massages have been found to be very helpful in decreasing muscle pain.

And who doesn’t like massages?

If you have the extra money then go get a professional massage, but if you can’t afford it or want to save money then try to get a family member or loved one to give you a massage!

7) If you are experiencing pain and you are desperate for immediate pain relief, then it might be time to break out the big guns.

I’m talking about prescription medication! your doctor might be able to prescribe some pain killers that can help get rid of your pain.

However, these are only temporary and can sometimes lead to adverse side effects, such as addiction. If you have access to medical marijuana then this might be an option as well.

8) Take a break from working if you are currently experiencing a lot of pain.

This one is pretty obvious, but pushing through the pain isn’t doing your body any good if you are just going to make your pain worse and cause yourself more issues in the long run.

These are just some of the things that you can do in order to alleviate your back pain, but it really comes down to trying various things and seeing what works for you. Everyone is different and something that works for one person might not work for another.

Just make sure to stay active and try to eat healthy as well.

Hopefully you find a way to deal with your pain! Best of luck!
