The pain mainly occurs in the center of the back, along the spine or on both sides of the spine. The primary reasons for backaches are strain, fatigue and lack of balance. Backache can be caused due to an accident or injury to the spine or some other kinds of diseases.

  • Cervical or lumbar spondilitis.
  • Stiffness along the spine.

Other Remedies
Back Ache
  • A hot bath usually helps. If possible, you should sit in a warm tub for a few minutes.
  • Exercise in order to strengthen the back muscles. Simple stretching exercises are also useful, when you have a back ache on a regular basis.
  • Try to relax and get enough rest to avoid both mental stress and physical strain on your back.
  • Get a massage. This does not have to be done by a professional - a family member can do it equally well as long as they do not use excessive force. Preferably this should be done using massage oil such as eucalyptus oil.
  • Vitamin C and calcium supplements may help, but consult your doctor before doing this.
  • Cut slices of raw potato and place them on the affected area.
