About


A condition that results from injury, inactivity, and wears and tear of the muscles of the lower back

84% of adults have lower back pain at some point in their lives [1]


-Can be acute, subacute, or chronic

Back pain is a medical condition that stems from inflammation in the lumbar region, degenerative disk disease, and several medical factors like injuries, age, and other reasons. Poor posture and lack of inactivity of the muscles in the lower back are common reasons behind the development of this condition.

Recurring Back pain - when lying down, sitting, or resting

Treatment


Self-care: Resting, drinking plenty of fluids, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle that combines a good diet and exercise regime are key to alleviating or preventing this condition


Medications: OTC drugs like Codeine, hydrocodone, or prescription NSAIDs can be taken by patients for relief, only with a doctor's prescription.


Specialists: Physical therapists guide patients through a series of exercises to release the tension in the muscles and relieve pain. Complementary therapies like Yoga and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) may be used as well. For more info, reach out to mfine medical team or enroll in our holistic treatment program.
