Acute cases:-

If Pain does not subside with this treatment:-

  • Go to the doctor and ask for an injection of pain killer or anti-inflammatory drug into the sorest spot.
  • Avoid X rays they are rarely useful and can cause damage. You many have to get them if the pain does not go away.
  • There is rarely any need for surgery. If the doctor insists on surgery make him wait for 2 weeks, if the pain does not decrease in that time, consider surgery. More than 50% of people who have back surgery will have another attack of back pain within five years, the same or worse than before the surgery.
  • At this stage nothing more can be done, they must live with it.
  • If the back is not operated on most pain will subside naturally within two months.

    • extension exercises
