re­sist the rays

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Health News -

With 90% of lower back pain cases iden­ti­fied as non-spe­cific, and usu­ally heal­ing in 4-6 weeks, NPS Medicinewise ad­vises it’s best to avoid bed rest and in­stead stay as ac­tive as pos­si­ble. Re­laxed and paced move­ments will de­crease the pain and si­mul­ta­ne­ously strengthen your back. So, if you have lower back pain, con­sider swap­ping out some­times un­nec­es­sary and po­ten­tially costly X-ray, CT or MRI scans for a stroll in the park.
