Unconventional methods used in the treatment of certain types of back pain


 Back pain is a problem that occurs in more that 80% of the population, and unfortunately there are clues that indicate that percentage to be on the rise. The syndrome of pain, associated with the location of the pain allow for a relatively fast establishment of the diagnosis, and without too many lab investigations – in most cases.

  However, one can not say the same about the treatment. There are numerous treatment patterns that have been conceived for this crippling disease, but all of them share a major disadvantage: the length of time elapsed until the patient is fully recovered and can fully resume his activities. From this point of view, the present paper suggests including among the therapeutic methods the association of the usual treatment with LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) and of reflex massage, performed on the inferior limbs on the areas where the projection of the spine is located.
  The study was conducted on 45 patients over 19 months. Following the analysis and processing of the data we obtained, we can state that the association between the two forms of treatment leas to a quicker recovery of the patients, with a precocious decrease of the intensity of the pain.

Keywords: back pain, reflex massage, laser therapy
