Massage can help relax your tense muscles and relieve pain.
There are a number of products on the market that can help you massage your own back muscles. Or you can give yourself a back massage using a tennis ball.
You can also do this massage with two tennis balls stuffed into a sock. Lie on the tennis balls with one ball on each side of your spine.
