It seems like everyone, at some point in their lives, will experience some degree of pain in the lower back. For some, it’s just a twinge after lifting something heavy, shoveling snow, hauling wood or doing too much yard work. For others, that first twinge turns into chronic pain that can interfere with sleep, standing, sitting, activity, exercise or work, causing them to seek some kind of treatment. If you’ve never had back pain before, your first thought might be to mention it to your doctor or with Acupuncture Sydney you can make that pain reduce faster. He or she might prescribe ice, rest and a non-steroidal ant-inflammatory drug (aspirin, ibuprofen, acetominophen), or might order an x-ray or MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging, a test that provides a much more detailed image than x-ray), or refer you for a Physical Therapy, Orthopedic Surgeon treatment or Pain Specialist.
