BACK PAİN. Treatment in BAKU.
Back pain is epidemic in most industrialized countries, especially where industrial compensation is avialable. It is estimated that up to 65% of the population will have back pain at some time and low back pain is the single commonest cause of time lost from work in many countries.
It is likely that the most common cause is mechanical, causing soft вЂ“ tissue injury, facet joint damage or disc protrusion. Ageing is also relevant, as the various tissues become less elastic and less piable with age. Most causes show little on initial investigation, especially in the young, and the majority(90%) resolve with adequate analgesia and rapid, progressive return to normal activity, which has now been shown to be better than bed rest, physiotherapy or exercise therapy. Some patients progress to overt clinical evidence of root compression, and this is usually associated with the herniated intervertebral disc.
Massage, Manual therapy, manipulation an traction, manual and osteopathic techniquesmay all have a place.
