Back Pain Treatment
Back pain is the primary cause of long-term disability worldwide. Nearly 1.5 billions people suffer from either acute or chronic back pain at some point in their lives. Thereby, it is the most frequent reason for which people see their medical professionals.
What is back pain?
The pain that arises due to nerve and muscular problems, degenerative disc disease,arthritis, or damage to synovial joints (facet joints) of the spine is known as back pain. The synovial joints damage has been identified as the primary source of the pain in approximately one-third of people with chronic lower back pain.It usually feels like an ache, tension or stiffness in the back.
Acute Back Pain
Acute back pain is a brief episode of pain that appears suddenly and usually lasts a week or month. The pain is a normal response of the body to injury or tissue damage and gradually recedes as the body heals. Acute back pain has an identifiable cause and if left untreated, it will turn into chronic pain with significant variation among people with similar conditions.
Spinal conditions such as spinal stenosis, spondylitis, fibromyalgia and slipped discs can cause ongoing acute back pain. The biggest struggle of patients with spinal disorder is the unresponsiveness to initial treatments because it requires a thorough diagnostic examination.
KKT Consultants execute a detailed physical evaluation to determine the underlying cause of the pain and then develop an individualized treatment plan.

Just like with every condition, if not treated early, you are at a huge risk of developing complications.

The Canadian Certified KKT Orthopedic Surgeons recommend that being inactive for long periods is bad for your back. Moderate activity, such as walking or doing routine tasks, will help you in early recovery of the disease. A positive state of mind also plays a significant role in healing. Although it may be a bit difficult to be cheerful if you are in pain, researchers have shown that people who remain positive tend to recover earlier than those who get depressed.
