Back Pain Treatment

Almost everyone feels the ache of back pain at some point in their life. A day filled with bending and leaning (in the midst of a move, for example) can cause some unpleasant aches and pains.

Back pain, like many conditions, can be temporary or may be chronic. If you find that your pain isn’t going away, it could be something more. But there is hope! Multiple publications have called back pain such a universal experience that it is the “common cold” of injuries. Seeking treatment for your back pain will help to reduce or completely eliminate the pain and discomfort.

With the help of Metro Urgent Care, you can find the comprehensive treatment for lower back pain that you need to live happily and pain-free. Don’t let back pain keep you down!

Diagnosis of Back Pain

You will not typically need to undergo an extensive regiment of tests, it all depends how severe your pain is and how best your care provider sees fit to treat it.

Once our gentle, skilled staff have identified the source of your pain, we can then embark on the journey to getting you back to a pain-free life. Every back pain treatment option will vary between patients; individualized care is our focus and we are proud to get to the bottom of the problem, no matter how severe. Our objective is to offer pain relief while restoring any loss of movement.

A health care professional may test or perform the following:

  • Blood or Urine
  • Physical Range of Motion
  • Nerve Function
  • Pressure on Your Back (to locate the area of discomfort or pain)
  • X-Rays
  • MRIs
  • CT Scans
  • and more

When visiting Metro Urgent Care, no appointment is necessary, and wait times are never excessive! But while you wait to receive professional treatment, you can try a variety of different remedies to help reduce the severity of the pain you’re suffering from. Take a look at the list below…lots of at-home treatments can be combined for maximum efficacy! Always be careful in your use of over-the-counter pain medication, as excessive use can cause issues far more severe than back pain.

  • Ice packs, applied to the site of pain, never for more than 15-20 minutes to prevent nerve damage.
  • Acetaminophen (Tylenol)
  • Aspirin or NSAIDs (Adults Only)
  • Exercise routines and stretching
  • Regular massages
  • Whirlpool baths – many find the pressure applied from the jets to be soothing.
