How do I treat pulles ligaments in the lower back?

How do I treat pulles ligaments in the lower back?

Diagnosis first: It is unusual to have back pain that stems only from pulled ligaments, so your first step should be to see a spine specialist (often, a physiatrist) to determine the diagnosis. If it is truly a pulled ligament, it will usually improve with time, physical therapy, and strengthening of the muscles surrounding the spine and core. Depending on the location of the ligament, prolo therapy may be option. ...Read more

I have a torn ligament in my lower back above my buttocks. My doctor has prescribed me to take naproxen. Will naproxen effect my ibs?

I have a torn ligament in my lower back above my buttocks. My doctor has prescribed me to take naproxen. Will naproxen effect my ibs?

Yes it likely will: Depends upon how sensitive your system is to these meds. I would say it wouldn't likely be harmful to try. However, given that these meds are likely to aggravate your condition, why not try tylenol (acetaminophen) (no effect)? Salonpas hot patches, ice/heat also will not affect your GI system. On the contrary, Naproxen will not heal this ligament, only time does that... ...Read more

When you have an injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament in the pelvis or low back area and do not treat it right away. How long will it take to heal?

When you have an injury to a muscle, tendon or ligament in the pelvis or low back area and do not treat it right away. How long will it take to heal?

Depends: Avoid anti-inflammatory medications for a ligament injury. The body's own inflammation can help healing. If you take Ibuprofen type medications, no repair of ligament to bone occurs and muscle pain syndromes are common and long term. Seek a prolotherapy trained physician to help treat old ligament injuries. Healing is possible, even if late. Surgical fixation doesn't give back flexibility. ...Read more
