Is a heating pad ir Ice Pack good for lower back pain?

When your back pain is acute (lasting less than 4 weeks) and/or caused by direct injury, please use cold therapy first.

Lowering body temperature will help to shrink blood vessels, reduce swelling, reduce inflammation and cause numbness.

Once inflammation subsides, choose heat therapy.

Heat therapy is an effective method to treat back pain, because it can promote circulation, relieve inflammation and

improve back stiffness. Any type of heat therapy can help relieve back pain. However, heating pads are ideal because

they are portable and electric, so you can use them anywhere in your home, such as lying in bed or sitting on the sofa.

On the other hand, as long as the heating pad is turned on, the temperature of the heating pad can be adjusted and

continuous heat can be provided.
