Back Pain

Almost people at some point during their lives have been ever  feeling back pain. Back pain is ack pain is a common reason for absence from work and doctor visits. Although back pain may be painful and uncomfortable, it is not usually serious.


Even though back pain can affect people of any age, it is significantly more common among adults aged between 35 and 55 years. Experts say that back pain is associated with the way our bones, muscles and ligaments in our backs work together


Pain in the low back can be a result of conditions affecting the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, muscles of the low back, internal organs of the pelvis and abdomen, and the skin covering the lumbar area 

There are multiple over-the-counter (non-prescription) and prescription medications that can be helpful in relieving pain and addressing related symptoms while an episode of back pain is getting better. Careful attention to pain management is a critical component of a patient's recovery, as acute or chronic low back pain can lead to depression, difficulty sleeping, and difficulty exercising and stretching, all of which in turn can exacerbate and prolong a painful back condition.


How To treatment your back pain


Pain relievers are generally available in three forms: oral, topical, and injection.

Oral pain medications.
There are many forms of pain medications that are taken by mouth - pill or liquid form - and they each work differently and have unique benefits and potential risks. Some are available only by prescription.

Topical pain medications.
These products are applied to the skin and are intended to reduce localized pain, such as pain from a sore muscle or from an arthritic joint. Most are available without a prescription. Brands of several popular topical pain relievers include Icy Hot, Arthricare, Zostrix (capsaicin), Aspercreme, Ben Gay, and many store brands.
