Spine – Chronic & Severe Lower Back Pain – Support For Sore Muscles & Herniated Discs
How is your back feeling lately?
Is your lower back giving you problems?
If your back is hurting you, it could be caused by a few key problems. Herniated spinal discs, sore muscles and a host of other back aliments can seriously hold you back. It can get so bad that you are wishing you had a way out of the pain,…the pain that you just do not deserve to deal with!
2.) What A Physician Would Say
A qualified spinal surgeon will tell you that surgery is not necessarily their first option to treat a patient. Let’s face it, sometimes surgery is the only and first option to consider in extremely severe situations, but most of the time conservative treatment options can be considered first. Among the effective conservative treatment options most relied upon are rest (of course), therapy and low profile back supports for pain relief.
3.) Rest & Therapy
Nobody can argue about the cost of rest. You do not have to pay anyone out of your pocket, like you would in therapy. However, you may pay in other ways when you are strictly resting to help alleviate back pain. Your time is consumed and with our busy lives, it is hard to always find the time to rest away a back problem.
Moreover, therapy can be useful, but it will have to be utilized in specific scenarios that your doctor agrees to. Do not get us wrong, therapy can be a useful adjunct to the healing process, but each session can cost you.
4.) Back Supports, Why They Should Not Be Overlooked
There are many low profile back braces available on the market today. Some are good, some are bad; just like anything else. However, your physician may totally agree that the use of a quality low profile, lightweight back support can be used to help you to get pain relief. Moreover, they can be used to help promote healing for many injuries that are located in the lower spine.
Sometimes custom back supports are required, but your physician will need to special order these and you will need to be seen by a brace specialist to be cast and measured for these devices. Mostly, these kinds of braces are used for fractured bones and just after an invasive spinal procedure.
