BACK PAIN EXPLAINED

What causes chronic back pain?

As your spinal column wears with age or following injury and disease, various types of chronic back pain can develop.

 

Unfortunately, the cause of this pain is not well understood since spinal degeneration is a normal part of aging. Though you may not experience any symptoms, simple actions such as bending forward, coughing, and even sitting may become very painful, impacting day-to-day life.

 

The good news is that effective treatment options do exist. See why COOLIEF* Cooled Radiofrequency might be the answer for you.

BACK PAIN TIPS & MANAGEMENT

How can I manage my back pain?

While it may not be obvious what causes chronic back pain, there are steps you can take to help manage it.

 

Developing strong back muscles through regular exercises is crucial if you’re looking to effectively manage back pain. By better distributing the weight on your back, less force is placed on the spine itself.  Talk to your doctor before starting any exercise regimen.

Surgery: An invasive and expensive path to pain relief

Surgery can be beneficial in properly selected patients. However, it is not for everyone.

Due to BMI, age, other co-morbidities, or invasiveness, surgery isn’t for everyone.16,17

Medication: An old way of thinking about pain relief

Pain relief has long relied on a daily regimen of  prescription medication and other over-the-counter pharmaceutical treatments, yet these don’t effectively target nerves that cause pain, and may be associated with:

  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Feelings of grogginess
  • Possible breathing problems
  • Potentially slower recovery
  • Potential addiction or dependency
