Low Back pain is often treated with drugs. This has been scientifically proven to be less effective than manual care and the natural methods which we employ nearly every day in my practice. Unfortunately most people first reach for pills or see the family physician before consulting with me. If you are suffering with Low Back Pain it is highly recommended you seek out a professional who will properly diagnose the condition and take the time to uncover the root cause of the problem and to select the appropriate treatment. A physical dysfunction cannot be corrected chemically, it can only be corrected with the correct physical medicine technique. It is also vital that you have your condition thoroughly examined and a complete history and workup be done prior to deciding on the course of action that needs to be taken. Don't gamble with your health in chasing the symptoms for an extended time period with drugs. Temporary use of medicine is sometimes necessary, but for Low Back Pain it is best to seek physical medicine as soon as possible. Additionally, be cautious when seeking advice, especially all internet and media related advice. Only after a reputable clinician has done a full workup on you (preferably after you have had more than one opinion) should you decide on what course is best for you. Most of all, avoid self-diagnosing. I do not recommend it, even for doctors like myself! Often the subjective view is not as accurate as an objective observer.
