Pain in the lumbar area,that is, in the lower back, can have a variety of causes: muscular injuries, damage to the structures of the spine, genetic conditions, etc. In any case, mobility and imaging studies are required to determine the underlying cause of the pain.

Although over-the-counter medications such as NSAIDs (anti-inflammatory analgesics, non-steroids) can combat certain degrees of back pain, when it is chronic or acute, it is necessary to seek medical attention. After the diagnosis, the doctor can order specific medications, which can be applied by direct infiltrations into the back, something that can only be done through medical supervision.
It is indispensable for strengthening the muscles of the back and recovering normal movement. It can be used as a base or as a complement to treatment, depending on the doctor's orders.
