Besides, creams, gels, sprays and drugs there is heat. Some like it hot.
For some people, nothing soothes a sore back like heat. In a recent study published in the journal Spine, researchers at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey Ė New Jersey Medical Center (UMDNJ-NJMC) discovered that the continuous (eight hours daily) application of low-level heat (104 degrees F) eased acute back pain better than either of two commonly used drugs, ibuprofen and acetaminophen.
There are heating wraps, heating pads and pain relieving patches that can go on any part of the body. The one pictured below is designed for treatment of neck, shoulder, arm, leg, knee and back pain. Others work for the hand, ankles, feet and elbow.
