When asked about the remedy people take, when they are
confronted with a more permanent back pain for the first, most
people will tell that they take some form of medication. Often a
non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs is prescribed by a doctor
or a muscle relaxant so the muscles (if that is the cause of the
back pain) can relax and stop the tension.

Physical therapy is the next step if the drugs or muscle
relaxers on their own don't work or are not showing the expected
results. Often the physical therapy will start while still
taking the prescribed drugs. The therapist will have a choice of
techniques to choose from, some of them are ultrasound, ice or
heat and even electrical stimulation. And while applying the
techniques the therapist will look at the results so he can
pinpoint which treatment will work the best for the patients
particular back pain problem.

With electrical stimulation a weak electrical current is sent
from a unit through the skin in to nerve pathways. Although this
does not work for everyone or all kinds of back pain it is
becoming very popular and it can be tried to see if there are
positive results.

be, surgery. The percentage of people with back pain who can
only be helped with surgery is very low. A type of surgery where
a part of the vertebra, the spinal column bony part, is removed,
this is called lacminectomy and laminotomy. Another surgical
option is intradiscal electrothermal therapy, with this option a
needle is inserted into the disc through a catheder.

hard work you should consult with your doctor. He or she can
