There are many ways to get back pain relief. Insurance companies are more likely to cover a patient if they go to a traditional doctor who will prescribe medication instead of covering non traditional treatment according to them. When a person has back pain a doctor usually prescribes imaging tests which aren’t even needed because they can’t see what is really wrong with their back. Everyone who has back pain responds differently to different treatments. When a person who has chronic back pain tries to do bed rest, it doesn’t help, it is actually opposite. Exercise takes away the pain. People with back pain also see a variety of non traditional doctors and surgery should always be the last option to treat chronic back pain.
- Non intrusive treatments like yoga and tai chi can be just as effective.
- Intrusive treatments to back pain should be a last resort measure.
- Many physicians are re thinking back pain after viewing the success of non traditional treatments.
“Growing research shows that a combination of hands-on therapies and other nondrug measures can be just as effective as more traditional forms of back care, including drugs and surgery.”
