Back pain is one of the most common medical conditions there is. Most Americans suffer low back pain at some point in their lives, whether it’s caused by an acute injury or repetitive movements. However, you don’t have to accept back pain as a foregone conclusion. By making smart lifestyle choices and working with the medical professionals at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point, you can relieve your back pain or prevent it altogether.
Causes of Back Pain
Back pain usually occurs when discs or vertebrae apply pressure to the spinal cord. Many people struggle with back pain after getting into a car accident, suffering a sports injury, or lifting an object improperly. Others experience back pain that gets worse over time, usually as a result of poor posture or a non-ergonomic workstation. If left unaddressed, minor back pain can lead to severe pain and permanent damage.
Common Treatment Options
Back pain remedies range from simple lifestyle changes to surgery. If you have relatively minor pain, you may find that exercising and getting a more ergonomic chair can provide relief. If your pain is more serious, you might consider physical therapy or a cortisone injection. Back surgery is reserved for serious cases of back pain that are unaffected by less invasive treatment methods.
