One of the things we’re committed to is providing fast service. We see patients within 24 hours of making their appointment, because we know that back pain isn’t something you want to live with any longer than necessary. So you’ll be able to come in and see our doctors and start your back pain treatment in Houston TX as soon as possible. However, there will be time between treatments when you are at home dealing with your back pain symptoms, but our doctors will give you suggestions and methods to try at home to alleviate your pain symptoms.
Your doctor will work with you to develop an at-home care regimen, but here are some general tips that you can try for yourself:
- Don’t spend too much time on bed rest. It may be hard to get up and around, but any longer than two days in bed and your muscles will start to weaken–potentially worsening your back problems and making your recovery more difficult.
- Use low-impact exercises to get up and around. Walking in a pool is one of the best exercises you can do for your back, because it relaxes the muscles while offering you a low-impact workout.
- Alternate cold packs and heat on sore spots in your back.
Make sure you talk to your doctor at the Advanced Spine Institute before you start any medication for back pain treatment in Houston TX. They’ll help you determine the right medication for your particular needs and make sure you are taking a safe and healthy dosage. Don’t wait to call and make your appointment with our medical team today so you can start getting relief from back pain soon!
