Low Back Pain

It is estimated that around four (4) out of five (5) people experience lower back pain at some point in their lives, making it a common reason people visit healthcare providers. Low back pain can result from various injuries, conditions, or diseases; however, the most often cause of lower back pain is due to a muscle or tendon injury. Muscle, tendon, or ligament injuries can occur by lifting something too heavy or not lifting safely. Some people can even strain their back by sneezing, coughing, twisting, or bending over. Other times, the cause of lower back pain may be unknown. The pain usually ranges from mild to severe, but the pain can make it difficult or impossible to walk, sleep, work, or do other everyday activities in some cases.

Symptoms of lower back pain can present suddenly or appear gradually. It may be sharp, dull and achy, or it may radiate down the back of the legs (known as sciatic pain). Low back pain is often worse in certain positions (like bending over) and may get better when lying down. Other symptoms usually include stiffness, muscle spasms, and inability to stand up straight.

Usually, lower back pain gets better with rest, ice, heat packs, and over-the counter pain relievers. If the pain doesn’t resolve, you may want to consult a physician to discuss safe prescription pain relievers, such as anti-inflammatory drugs or muscle relaxers that have no potential for addiction. Because it might take weeks or sometimes months to get an appointment with your regular physician or any new specialist, you may want to try a quick and easy telehealth visit that can allow you to talk to a doctor the same day.

Saferpainmanagement.com is an online platform where pain telehealth consultation services are available for those needing a safe non-addictive prescription medication when over-the-counter pain medications are just not enough for low back pain. Telehealth visits can be completed within 30 minutes and a prescription can be prescribed based on a doctor’s assessment. This could be a more immediate solution while awaiting a doctor’s appointment or when simply wanting to avoid going to a doctor altogether.

Ultimately if symptoms persist, you should seek a live doctor’s visit so you can get a full work up and possibly some x-rays or lab tests based on an evaluation. Star Discount Pharmacy has partnered with Saferpainmanagement.com and can ensure your telehealth prescription is received and filled quickly, most times within hours. When conducting the telehealth visit through Saferpainmanagement.com use the coupon code SPMFREE for a free visit and choose Star Discount Pharmacy as your pharmacy choice.
