TrustWellness Did You Know...? Low Back Pain Home Remedies

Studies show that eight in 10 Americans have back pain at some point in their lives, usually in the lower back.  You might have sprained it while working in the yard or cleaning house. Or your back might hurt from an old sports injury or a chronic condition such as arthritis or ankylosing spondylitis.  Sudden or severe back pain should be checked by a doctor or a physical therapist. That also goes for pain that won’t go away.  But sometimes you can treat nagging pain and discomfort on your own.  Here are 5 home remedies you can try to manage low back pain and TrustWellness programs that can help:
