Treatment for Back Pain
Depending on the severity and cause of the dorsalgia treatment will vary. Heat therapy is a common means of release. In some instances cold therapy may work too. Muscle relaxants, NSAIDSs and opioids are used quite often to relieve the pain. Massage and accupressure are optional treatments. In some cases specific exercises can help alleviate back pain. Physical therapy consisting of stretching, strengthening and manipulation of the back muscles has been effective in some cases. Surgery is an option for those with physical deterioration of the intervertebral discs, fractures, scoliosis and spondylolisthesis.
