What Are the Treatments for Lower Back Pain?
Lower back pain can’t always be cured, but it can be treated, mitigated and, in some cases, prevented. Patients should first note whether pain is localized in the muscles or vertebrae. Numbness or tingling may indicate nerve-induced pain. Determining the cause and any patterns of recurrent pain will guide patients toward effective home treatment. Serious injury or spinal degeneration that initiates pain symptoms may require surgery or medical management.
