Low back pain

Dr. James Bush is helping patients with low back pain.

It can result from a sports injury, lifting too much or incorrectly or simply "overdoing it" with house work or yard work.

Pain is usually due to a strain of a muscle or ligament and should improve in a few days to weeks.

Anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen can decrease the pain. Stronger prescription medications are also available.
