What should I do if I have lower back pain?

Significant back pain that makes it impossible for you to move and sleep, or causes loss of bladder and bowel control, should immediately be looked at by a doctor. In the majority of cases, the pain should disappear on its own. Resting your back, applying heat or cold to the affected area, light exercise or use of pain relievers are all ways to self-treat back pain.
