Doctors at the Mayo Clinic say that warming up a sore back provides 33% more pain relief than taking ibuprofen or acetaminophen… And it often works within about 20 minutes. That’s because – according to inflammation expert and biochemist Dr. Barry Sears – heat relaxes tight muscles, increases blood flow to injured tissues, and flushes out pain-triggering compounds.
So, heat up your back by taking a steamy bath, or using a hot water bottle, heat wraps, or an electric heating pad. And get ready for some relief!
