Chronic low back pain is the presence of pain in the lower back area: from where the lungs begin to the buttocks. This pain can persist for days or weeks, and although it can disappear it can return after a short period of time, so it requires special attention.
Chronic low back pain is not necessarily localized, that is, it can affect the entire back area in a non-specific way. When the discomfort persists for weeks or months and does not subside after rest or analgesics, it is time to seek professional medical help.
A medical assessment is essential to locate and identify pain, which can affect different structures of the spine and the tissues that support it. The diagnosis can be complemented with imaging studies such as an MRI.
At the Centro de la Columna Vertebral,we treat chronic low back pain by applying myorelaxant, analgesic and anti-inflammatory treatment using the ©Ovando Sanders formula, as well as physical therapy that includes strengthening exercises, moist heat, electrical stimulation, massages and ultrasounds.
