Almost everybody experiences back pain at some point in their lives, but what happens when over the counter medicines don’t provide relief, or when pain moves from acute to chronic? When should you call a doctor and where should you start?
In this segment of TriHealth’s Doctor on Call, James Bruns MD, a pain medicine specialist with TriHealth Orthopedic & Sports Institute answers these questions and more such as how long should pain last before considering it chronic, which doctor to call, what role can alternative therapies play in finding relief and which symptoms might indicate a more serious issue?
