2. Practice simple yoga poses like Bhujanganasana (cobra pose), Makarasana (crocodile pose), Shalabhasana (locust pose), and Markatasana (spinal twist) on a daily basis.
3. It is advised that you don’t sit in the same position for more than two hours. Keep taking five-minute breaks to stretch your body.
4. Massage your back regularly, especially before going to sleep, with oils like mustard or sesame help. You can also use ayurvedic oils like Mahanarayan oil, Ashwagandha oil, and Dhanwantaram oil.
Bhavsar mentioned that if the back pain is due to nerve compression or chronic, then Ayurveda medicines along with these tips can assist people in managing their pain effectively.
