Q. Will my doctor prescribe medications for my condition?

A. Mild pain medications can reduce inflammation and pain when taken properly. Medications you may be prescribed include:

Aspirin - over-the-counter pain relievers that can help relieve minor pain and back ache.

NSAIDs - non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are very effective in relieving the pain associated with muscle strain and inflammation.

Non-narcotic analgesics - relieve pain at the point of injury.

Narcotic pain medications - help relieve severe pain by numbing the central nervous system.

Muscle relaxants - help a little in relieving pain from muscle spasm.

Antidepressants - help relieve the emotional stress that often compounds the symptoms of back pain.

General Caution: All medications can have side effects. Be sure to discuss these with your doctor before beginning to take any of these medications.
