There are several ways to treat lower back pain. Some treatment options include:
In some severe cases, medication or surgery is necessary to treat lower back pain. Patients who want to pursue natural treatment options, however, can usually get the relief they need from chiropractic adjustments.
An initial appointment with a healthcare provider for lower back pain takes about as long as a typical doctor appointment. The appointment usually includes some preliminary paperwork, taking the patient’s medical and family history, discussing symptoms with the healthcare provider, and an exam of the lower back. After all of this is taken care of, the healthcare provider will recommend an appropriate course of treatment.
Treatments are often scheduled for another appointment, although they can sometimes be performed on the same day as the initial appointment. How long appointments for treatments takes can vary dramatically. Non-invasive procedures, like chiropractic adjustments, can be done in just a short amount of time, often less than an hour. In comparison, surgery can require a multi-day hospital stay.
Doctors, physician’s assistants, nurse practitioners, physical therapists, and chiropractors all offer treatment options for lower back pain. Doctors are able to perform surgery, and doctors, physician's assistants and nurse practitioners all are able to prescribe medication.
Patients who want non-surgical and non-medicated treatment often choose to see a physical therapist or chiropractor. Chiropractors, in particular, are highly qualified to assess the root cause of lower back pain and determine the best way to treat it naturally. Like medical doctors, chiropractors have doctoral degrees, but they specialize in the musculoskeletal system and treating it naturally.
