It might seem like obvious advice, but it is true that subtle everyday changes, can add up to a reduction in pain for those with degenerated discs. Even better, many of the changes you can make are inexpensive and time efficient.
The first thing you can do to find pain relief is to modify or stop the activities that hurt your back the most. You might have to stop your weekly basketball game or take time off from your golf game, but your back will thank you in the long run. This is also true for lifting objects that are large or heavy.
Find a way to support your back throughout the day. You can do so through investing in ergonomic chairs or a stand-up desk at work. You can also find a supportive mattress so you can spend you nights sleeping in comfort. A foam-wedge pillow can help assist you in finding comfort while sleeping.
