Treatments For Chronic Back Pain

Back injuries can be from sport related.

Treatments for chronic back pain differ from those for back pain of an acute onset. With an acute onset, there is usually an injury of some type--sudden movement, sports injury, automobile accident, etc. Pain from an acute injury is usually more likely to be in the muscles, or possibly a vertebral fracture. The cause of chronic back pain frequently has a more subtle onset, occurring over an extended time period.

Before beginning a treatment regimen for chronic back pain, it's necessary to determine the cause. Some common causes include disc degeneration, tumors, rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, poor posture, and others. Treatment for chronic back pain as a result of poor posture is totally different from managing the pain of rheumatoid arthritis or tumors.

Success Stories

Extreme cases, such as those involving a tumor or severe disc herniation, may require surgery. Most patients, however, can obtain pain relief through non-surgical means such as moist heat, good posture, physical therapy, strengthening exercises, and chiropractic manipulation. Ultrasound therapy is often recommended to assist the muscle tissue in the healing process. Soundwave technology has been shown to increase blood flow to the deep muscle tissue, and that is effective in removing the toxins that can collect in the muscle.

If you're suffering from chronic back pain, see your healthcare professional or a licensed back specialist. It's possible that something as simple as ultrasound therapy from MendMeShop can relieve the day-to-day pain.
