Stop The Back Pain!

Pain is the ultimate motivator. With hopes of relieving it, people will spend much money on special chairs, mattresses, medical imaging, acupuncture, chiropractic visits, and various other medical procedures. Well-meaning friends offer a wealth of costly and sometimes ineffective suggestions. Telling a physician that surgery is out of question should be something mentioned before spending thousands of dollars that may have been better allocated for physical therapy or gym membership with a personal trainer. At the outset, a cautious doctor and also a patient should ask: “How far am I willing to go with treatment?” Some patients limit care to medicinal remedies.

Backaches can virtually immobilize a patient, making it difficult to sit, stand, walk or lift. Allowing inflammation to subside may require putting less pressure on spine while increasing exercise; it seems counterproductive. In some cases, immobilization is required.
