Treating Back Pain

The goal of back pain treatment is to relieve pain and restore movement. Different levels of back pain require different methods of treatment. 

Most of the time back pain is easily treatable. Depending on the source of your pain, treatments include physical therapy, cold or hot compresses, limited bed rest, over-the-counter medications, and prescription medications. In this video, Dr. Paul Knoepflmacher explains these treatments in detail and discusses how your doctor can help you get back to feeling like your old self.

Acute back pains usually get better within a week with some over the counter pain relievers and a icy hot patch. More server back pains will have to properly diagnosed by MRI's and X-Ray's before moving forward with treatment.
