Conservative Therapies of Arthritis
Over-the-counter medications are the first steps to treat back pain, explains Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care. However, he recommends being very careful about them because they can cause side effects.
Other conservative therapies for treating arthritis are: injections, diet, exercise, weight loss and other natural therapies.
The doctor also says those therapies take about two or three days to start working.
