If you have been battling chronic low back pain for some time now and seeing your life falling apart because your workplace productivity may have been compromised, you are unable to fulfill the duties by your family, or cannot perform the activities that you love most, it is time that you sought treatment for your condition. Low back pain is not only a painful malady but if left untreated, it can turn into a debilitating condition. There exist both surgical and non-surgical methods of treating low back pain.
Non-surgical methods of treating low back pain are preferred over surgical methods because, firstly, the latter is not recommended for all patients and secondly, the recuperation period for a surgical operation is much longer than any non-surgical treatment method followed.
We, at Global Pain & Spine Clinic, have a variety of non-surgical ways of alleviating low back pain. Our physical therapy treatment consists of flexibility and strength-inducing exercise regimens and manual therapy that not only brings relief from the pain by improving blood circulation to the area, releasing muscle tension and spasm, and stretching the tissues, but also protects this vulnerable area of your body from future injuries by increasing strength and flexibility.
We also use acupuncture and chiropractic care to treat low back pain. In fact, acupuncture used along with cold laser therapy or electric stimulation has been proven to be one of the most effective ways of treating chronic pain in this area of the body. Chiropractic care involves spinal manipulation to align the vertebrae, an operation that is undertaken after our manual therapists stretch and loosen the muscles and the ligaments in the area.
We may also recommend bracing or prescribe non-steroidal anti-inflammatory pain medications and cortisone shots to alleviate your painful condition. We will decide on a specific method of treatment after we have assessed your particular case, so you get optimum benefits.
