We've Got Your Back

Better Homes & Gardens—October 1, 2017

Better Homes & Gardens featured HSS physiatrist James F. Wyss, MD, PT in an article about the best treatments for back pain management.

For acute pain, Dr. Wyss recommended to move as much as possible after one day in bed. "Even just walking around a little bit can help gently stretch muscles and increase the blood supply so you start to feel better faster," he said.

He noted that applying a big gel cold pack or crushed ice can also help inflammation for acute pain.

For chronic pain, Dr. Wyss stated that seeing a physical therapist can be useful to prevent future recurrences.
