[fa icon="calendar'] Mar 22, 2017 5:00:00 AM / by Isadora Guggenheim

Suffering with lower back pain?
Acute back pain typically has a positive prognosis, even if it is with sciatica, meaning improvement within the first month of treatment. Non-pharmacological treatments are usually the first options considered in patients with chronic low back pain. There is evidence that supports exercise as an effective way to treat - such as stretching and strength training. Other non-pharmacological treatments include:
multidisciplinary rehabilitation, acupuncture, mindfulness-based stress reduction, tai chi, yoga, motor control exercise, progressive relaxation, electromyography biofeedback, low-level laser therapy, operant therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, or spinal manipulation.
In patients who have had an inadequate response to the non-pharmacological therapy, the next step is usually non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs while the ACP recommends duloxetine as a second line of therapy.  Benzodiazepines feature somnolence, or a strong urge to sleep and are extremely addictive among other adverse side-effects. Acetominophen features hypoglycemia and systemic corticosteriods feature hyperglyccemia or high blood sugar.

Prolozone therapies provide a safe and effective way to treat back pain. Prolozone is an injectable combination of natural steroids, tissue regeneration homeopathics, cellular nutrients, proliferants and ozone.  This combination repolarizes cellular membranes so injured cells can heal.  Inflammation and swelling disappear.  Proliferants stimulate growth factor production and ozone stimulates healthy blood flow.
