Most adults will complain of back pain at some time in their life. Back pain, usually in the lower back, most often results from a strain caused by lifting something heavy or suddenly moving in an awkward position. That type of pain will usually heal on its own with rest and patience.
Chronic back pain, on the other hand, might indicate a more serious condition. A herniated disc or spondylosis are two examples of chronic back pain causes. That type of back pain will likely require medical intervention, in the form of physical therapy or even surgery.
You should talk with your doctor about back pain if you experience numbness or tingling in your arms or legs, the pain extends down your leg, if pain is accompanied by fever or if the pain gets worse or doesn’t improve with rest. Those could be signs of a more serious problem.
With back pain so prevalent in our population, numerous paid clinical trials are underway to find relief. Chronic upper or lower back pain can interfere with daily activities and lead to larger problems. Aventiv Research professionals are investigating a pain relieving medication targeting lower back pain sufferers.
If you have suffered from upper or lower back pain for more than three months, you may be eligible for a paid back pain clinical trial. Volunteering for a paid clinical trial can not only provide you with some back pain relief, you can also help many more people suffering like you.
