Daily exercise, fruits and veggies, not smoking all help, cardiologist says
Four in five people will be affected by lower back pain at some point in their lives. Most back pain will ease with rest and over-the-counter pain relievers, according to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons. Applying cold compresses or ice for 20 minutes several times a day also may help. Talk to your health care provider if the pain doesn't ease after these self-care steps.
