Alternative Treatments for Back Pain

Alternative therapies such as Tai Chi (it’s one of the good ways to engage the core muscles) and massages (it’s a good source of relaxation) are good ways to treat back pain, says Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care.
However, he says he tells their patients those treatments are not a panacea, because they’re to be done in conjunction with strengthening exercises, physical fitness and right diet modifications.
The doctor adds treatments should be a combination of things: to change lifestyle and get more in tune with a healthy lifestyle, among others.
