(HealthNewsDigest.com) - New York -- Jul 08, 2014  -- Lower back pain is a common type of pain experienced by many, but there's no need to continue suffering from this type of pain on a daily basis. There are several treatment options available for lower back pain and finding the right treatment depends on the cause of your back pain. The professionals at Pain Physicians NY are specially trained in pain management and offer all sorts of treatment options to help put an end to pain. Dr. Leon Reyfman and Dr. Tamer Elbaz of Pain Physicians NY offer some tips for those dealing with lower back pain.

Exercise - If your lower back pain is due to muscle tension, a good way to relieve this tension is to do some light exercise. It's good to get the body moving and can help ease inflammation. 

Adopt safer practices - Be careful with lifting and bending in day-to-day or labor related activities and this might provide some relief. 

Change your sleep position - Instead of sleeping on your back it might be better to sleep on your side with your knees pulled a little bit towards your chest. Avoid sleeping on your stomach, which is worse for your back.

Stand straighter - Poor posture can make back pain even worse, which is why it's important to stand tall and straight instead of hunched over. 

Don't wear heels - Women who wear high heels end up dealing with pain because the heels shift your center of gravity and can put strain on your lower back. A lower heel is recommended, but if you must wear high heels, only wear them for short periods of time. 

Stay at a healthy weight - Putting on weight can also shift your center of gravity and carrying around extra pounds is no good for your back. Shedding some of those extra pounds can make a huge difference in the back pain you are experiencing.

Do yoga - Yoga is an excellent way to help relieve back pain. It relieves muscle tension, improves flexibility, and it improves your breathing. Learning effective breathing can also relieve muscle tensions and back pain.

Pain Physicians NY goes beyond these basic steps, which are likely not enough to permanently provide the type of relief that severe back pain requires. For a long-term solution that aims to repair the root cause of your lower back pain, consult with the doctors at Pain Physicians NY to find the best pain treatment plan for you.
