Treatment of Back Pain
Treatment of low back pain depends on many factors, like condition of the patient, type of pain (chronic or acute). Surgery is recommended only in limited cases, for example, if there is evidence of worsening nerve damage, diagnostic tests suggest structural changes which can be addressed only with corrective surgical procedures. In the majority of cases, the patient with chronic back pain can better with physiotherapy, strengthening exercises, yoga and lifestyle modifications.
Chronic pain often doesn’t get better as patients make rushed decisions or undergo extensive medical procedures. Your doctors may exhaust all diagnostic options, failed to find the origin of the pain and your situation couldn’t get better anymore. If the pain is getting worse, the best way is to find an alternative option for pain management with nonsurgical treatments.
How Physical Therapy Can Help
Exercise is the foundation of nonsurgical chronic back pain treatment. It should be the first treatments you should go for under the guidance of your neurosurgeon and spine physiotherapist. As the same exercise doesn’t suit everyone, it should be tailored to your specific conditions and symptoms. Maintaining an exercise routine is another must-follow step for the big part of success.
Physical therapy successfully subsides the pain in most of the cases, because:
- It retrains your posture
- Tests the limits of pain tolerance
- Aids stretching and flexibility of your body
- Works on core strengthening
- Gives you confidence that it is “OK” to move
- Repairs the injured tissue in your back
