Dr. Jeremy describes treating Acute Severe Low Back Pain. We typically use this side lying treatment for patients who are experiencing pain that's rated 7/10 or above. As you can see in the video this type of treatment is very tolerable. Patients respond really well with this type of treatment when they are in the Acute (Flared Up) Phase of Care.
When treating a patient with Severe Low Back Pain we have 2 simple goals. #1 is to get you out of pain as soon as possible. #2 is to make sure we get you to a point in which your injury is healed and the pain is highly unlikely to return in the future. Avoiding Re-occurrence is important with back injuries.
During Acute Flare Ups we have many treatment options. We can use this Side Lying Treatment, Chiropractic Adjustments, Electrical Stimulation, Soft Tissue Therapies, and Home Exercises just to name a few. I typically find that adding a couple of these treatments into a patient's treatment plan helps them progress the quickest.
If you need help getting out of back pain, even if you're nervous about treatment hopefully this video will help. Just know that we have different options for treatment. Patient's are often surprised by how gentle this treatment is and how well they respond.
