Get Back to Normal with Low Back Pain Treatment from MD Now.

Posted on October 20, 2016 and filed under Urgent Care Blog

Did you know that 80% of Americans will experience low back pain at some time in their lives? If you suffer from back pain, you’re not alone, but you’re probably seeking some sort of effective low back pain relief. Today, there are many options for low back pain treatment, as well as helpful protective measures that can save you from this lower back burden.

Low back pain appears as either as acute back pain, which only occurs on occasion, or as chronic back pain, which continues for three months or more. In acute lower back pain, symptoms can range from general to specific and can be caused by something basic like muscle strain or more complex vertebrae damage. Yet there are usually no obvious causes for chronic low back pain.

Regardless of the severity, the primary problems caused by lower back pain include:

  • Mild to severe aches and pain
  • Loss of function
  • Loss of mobility
  • Poor posture
  • Limited flexibility

In addition, mood swings and depression are also seen in chronic lower pain sufferers.

If you experience lower back pain that persists for more than three days, you should seek medical attention to get some real relief. There are many types of treatment for chronic back pain and acute back pain, including alternatives like non-narcotic medications and physical therapy, and the physicians at MD Now can guide you toward the best treatment.

Whether you currently suffer from lower back pain or simply want to prevent it, regular exercise can be a helpful low back pain treatment and prevention method because it helps restore your full range of motion, flexibility, mobility, and posture. Exercise also provides low back pain relief by supporting your spine and strengthening your core muscles. Many people have found that getting regular exercise can be a helpful treatment for chronic back pain and acute back pain, as well as an effective way to help prevent the problem.
