Back pain will effect 8 out of 10 people some time in there life. Fortunately most back pain goes away after a few days of rest, ice and Advil. But what do you do when your back pain doesn’t go away?!
Back pain that lasts more then two weeks could be an indication that there is an underlying cause that may need professional care. There are many options out there for someone suffering from back pain.
Some common treatments include over the counter medication such as Advil, Aleve and Motrin, but if that was going to fix your back pain then you would probably be fixed by now.
You can try prescription medication such as pain killers or muscle relaxers but they can be addictive and are only designed to take the edge off the pain until your body heals. There is Physical Therapy, but you will need a medical doctors referral and may have to go 3 times a week with each treatment lasting an hour or longer. You might be told that you need surgery or that your condition is not bad enough yet and to come back when its worse. Not to mention that surgery should be the last option after all else has failed.
