If low back pain persists for more than two days, call your chiropractor. In the meantime, however, there are things you can do to relieve the pain.
- Every 2 hours, apply ice for 15-20 minutes.
- Don't use heat.
- Lie on your back with knees and hips bent at a 90 degree angle.
- Use a pillow or rolled up towel behind your lower back when sitting.
- Avoid twisting, bending or lifting.
- Don't stay in bed for more than 2 days.
