BACKPAINBack pain is a common complaint and frustration that most people will deal with at some point in their lives. If you have yet to experience any back pain, you should be taking preventive care to help reduce your risk of suffering from back issues in the future.

If you are, however, suffering from back pain – you should seek medical attention so your doctor can help diagnose, treat and educate you on proper care for back issues.

Your doctor might suggest the following treatments:

  • Over the counter pain relievers
  • In home treatments such as light activity and stretching
  • Over the counter pain relievers such as Tylenol, Ibuprofen or Aleve
  • Physical therapy/exercising routines
  • Injections
  • Surgery

Few people ever need surgery for back pain. It is usually is reserved for pain related to structural anatomical problems that haven’t responded to prior treatments suggested by your doctor.
