  • A heating pad always helps me. I get terrible back pain during my time of the month. It always helps me.

  • I agree with gabenmikeysmom. I have arthritis and 2 hernieated discs. I've found that stretching helps a lot.

  • I was amazed when Physical Therapists taught me stretches to help alleviate my back pain. I'm off all pain meds and was taking 2400 mg of Motrin a day. Now I just stretch. I agree to work on the core and posture as well. Just google back stretches.
