Lower Back Pain with Trinity Orthopedics
There are many causes of lower back pain. It can be something as simple as a strained ligament, a strained or pulled muscle, or making the wrong movements. Many people hurt their lower back simply because they are pushing, pulling, or lifting something in the wrong manner and straining some part of their back. There are also several conditions that can present themselves as lower back pain:
- Herniated or ruptured disc
- Spinal Stenosis
There are many other causes of lower back pain, and what this means for a patient is that a thorough evaluation is needed.
In order to relieve lower back pain, the Fort Worth orthopedic surgeons at Trinity Orthopedics recommend rest and anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen or Aleve for pain relief. Hydrating your body and getting rest will take care of most simple back pains. Merely restricting your activities and giving your body time to recover will take care of the pain. Avoid aggressive activity and don’t try to rush back into your normal routine.
For severe conditions, treatment will vary. However, the doctors at Trinity Orthopedics have the skills and knowledge to help you find the source of your pain and develop a personalized plan that will drive out the pain and have you back to your normal routines as quickly as possible.
