Have you ever tried acupressure? I used to be intimidated by the sound of it but then I learned that acupressure can be a quick and easy way to manage pain.
Here is my favorite acupressure point for back pain…and it even helps me get rid of headaches!
First, try to lie down on your back before you start, so the muscles in your back can relax. Then find the pressure point that is between your index finger and your thumb.
Use your other thumb and forefinger to apply firm pressure for a few seconds and then release. Repeat a few times and try to relax as you do.
I can usually tell that I have found this pressure point when I feel an area that is slightly tender and has a thick mass.
I have included a picture to help you.
