Can KRY help for back pain?

Yes. At Kry you can, through video interviews with our doctors, come deeper into what causes your back pain. You can then get advice on how to handle the problems and also get a referral if necessary.

Back pain is a common inconvenience experienced by many people during periods. Fortunately, pain is rarely due to a more serious disease. However, suffering should not adversely affect your life and should be taken care of.

You may experience that you get very tired in your body and can not really hold the upper part of the body. You may also feel a sharp back pain and have difficulty stretching yourself completely. The pain in the back can also radiate against, among other things, the loins and out in both legs.

One of the most common causes of pain in the back is that you make a fast and erroneous movement. You may also be stressing too much. An incorrect movement may occur, for example, in sports where you turn more than you should. Too much strain on the back may result from lifting heavy things with the back, instead of using the legs, also called backrests. Weakness in the back can also be caused by a sluggish body position and that some muscles do not get the right training.

The best thing to do if you are in pain is to touch you carefully. Take slow walks in comfortable shoes and stretch your back muscles properly, avoid sitting down and stay upright. Rest does not make your back better, try to keep on your feet, your muscles need to be activated. Should the pain be overwhelming, painkillers can help in the worst moments. A physiotherapist, naprapath or chiropractor can advise you on which treatment method is best for your type of pain.

When should I apply for care?
