What is back pain?
Back pain is one of the most frequent health problems. We have all suffered from back pain at some point of our lives. The most common cause is a sprain or a strain of muscles or ligaments in the area. Back pain can be classified according to the description given by the patient. It can vary from constant, dull aching pain to intense and sudden pain.
The duration of pain can range from a few days to several weeks, and it is considered to be chronic if it persists more than three months.
What causes back pain?
It is difficult to identify the causes of back pain except when there has been a forced movement or an accident that has affected the column. In other cases the pain or discomfort is caused by poor postural habits that we have acquired in the past and we are not aware of.
Therefore, the causes of back pain can be such as daily activities, aging, pregnancy, injuries, accidents, obesity, stress, poor working posture, etc.
What is the best treatment?
Integrative Medicine is about combining conventional medicine with alternative or complementary medicines that have been scientifically validated. Given the several possible causes of back pain it is important to determine the cause before developing the most appropriate treatment for each patient. Integrative medicine’s holistic approach analyzes and studies all the possible triggers of the disease. Once they are identified, we work in both the prevention and relief of the pain.
In Clínica Omega Zeta we offer acupuncture, osteopathy, Shiatsu and technologies such as Scenar and Segex. All of them have been proved effective in the treatment of back pain.
Clínica Omega Zeta medical team will advise you on the treatment more suitable to your medical condition.
