Going through daily activities with a painful back is tough. Bending over, sitting in a chair, and lifting can be very hard. If this describes you at all, read the following article, and see how you can relieve pain in your back.

Use over the counter pain relievers, such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen, to help relieve back pain. Taking oral pain medications can allow you to function somewhat normally when you are suffering from a bout of back pain. Be sure to follow the instructions on the package for best results.

Apply topical pain relievers to help relieve back pain. Various creams, oils, gels and medicated patches are available that can be applied to the area of the back that hurts in order to offer pain relief. Many can be found over the counter, but some can only be obtained from a medical practitioner or by prescription.

In order to minimize back pain cause by injured or strained muscles, apply ice to the injured area. Although heat may feel better on the skin, it does nothing to reduce the inflammation, which is what is causing the back pain. Ice, however, will help reduce the swelling and inflammation. Reducing the inflammation relieves back pain.

Be sure that you do not wear a heavy backpack and watch how you have it positioned on your back. Having too much in your backpack can cause strain in your back, which can cause pain. Also, if you have it too high or too low, you risk straining your back.
