A sore back can be caused by many things including lifting heavy objects, poor posture, or even a hard workout. When the back muscles get irritated or sore,  here are some things that may help.

To help get relief from a sore back, start off with pelvic tilts and bridges lying down are a great way to get the muscles moving and loosened up without a whole lot of movement that might be painful.

Another great way to help relieve muscle soreness in your back and other areas is using a pain relieving gel. The folks at Capsiva have a pain relieving gel that has capsaicin in it. Capsaicin is a natural chili pepper extract with pain relieving properties. Their formula has taken out the heating up component, so it can be a stronger concentration to help block the pain signal to the brain so you can do the stretches and exercises you need to do to help you heal.
