Home care

  • Stay in bed with the most comfortable posture. Most of this posture is bent sideways, with a cushion between the knees, like a lying shrimp.
  • Apply a cold damp cloth or a warm damp cloth to the waist.


  • When the low back pain is so severe that you can't turn around, you should be hospitalized.
  • The doctor will give the patient an injection or oral administration of an analgesic.
  • After an acute phase of about four to five days, the doctor will begin physical therapy for the back of the patient.


  • When lifting the weight, bend your knees and bend the waist properly.
  • Do more gymnastics at the waist to strengthen the back muscles and abdominal muscles.
