Your doctor can help you, so see them for a timely diagnosis and treatment. Once they analyze your symptoms and your medical history, they will perform a physical examination to analyze your postural habits, your muscle strength, and range of motion.
Depending on your symptoms, your doctor may request, in addition to laboratory tests such as blood tests, the following:
- Discogram (disc x-ray).
- Electromyography (electronic study of the nerves and muscles).
- Myelogram (x-ray of the nerves).
- Computed tomography.
Back pain usually improves after treatment with painkillers, anti-inflammatories, and muscle relaxants.
Although if the pain does not subside, then you may require physiotherapy, intramuscular cortisone, the implantation of nerve stimulators, or surgery.
