Do you know the best way to deal with back pain is to stay active and continue doing regular exercise? The advice 20 years ago was to rest, but research has shown that inactivity only makes things worse.
When you’re in pain you may want to stay in bed and not move around, but that results in further loss of mobility and will only prolong the pain.
