Health.com: 15 Natural Back Pain Remedies

Pilates

It may be tempting to quit exercising when you're suffering from back pain, but it's essential to keep yourself moving. Pilates is one great option. In a 2014 "European Journal of Physical Rehabilitation Medicine" study, researchers found an improvement in pain, disability, and psychological health in chronic low-back pain patients who took five hourlong Pilates classes a week for six months. Meanwhile, people who remained inactive experienced further worsening of their pain. Similarly, a "Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise" study revealed that taking either Pilates or a general exercise class twice a week for six weeks both improved pain and quality of life.
