HealthCasts – Robert Watkins, IV, MD – Alternative Treatments For Back Pain


Visit Us:


If you suffer from back pain and do not wish to undergo surgery, there are some alternative treatments that can reduce back pain for a period of time. However, alternative treatments do not cure the problem and surgery might be needed if the condition advances. Acupuncture, chiropractic treatments, epidurals or oral medication can help break the cycle of pain. However, these measures are usually not enough, thus, you will need to go to a physical rehabilitation program, where a physical therapist will help you train your muscles to take the stress off the joints, discs, and spine.
