Health Tip: Dealing With Low Back Pain

Ask your doctor if medication may help

(HealthDay News) -- Low back pain can result from an injury or from degeneration of disks between the spine's vertebrae.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how to manage with low back pain:

  • Ask your doctor about taking medication, such as a pain reliever, anti-inflammatory drug or a steroid.
  • Consider physical therapy, an exercise program for back pain or chiropractic treatment.
  • Consider wearing a back brace.
  • Talk to your doctor about whether you need surgery.
