Conservative Management of Back Pain
There are conservative care options to treat back pain such as pain medications, back brace, bed rest, physical therapy and antiresorptive medications.
Dr. Georgiy Brusovanik, Spine Surgeon with Baptist Health South Florida, explains if pain is lasting for 24 hours, the patient needs a diagnosis. Narcotics have no place in treating back pain, because they can cause addiction.
Dr. Brusovanik affirms new medications can help prevent degeneration and can lead to tissue healing.
