Patient Question

Hello Doctor,


I'm in severe pain in my back and neck joints. What kind of treatment should I seek for this pain?


Answered by Dr. Mohamed Elalfy


Thank you for reaching out to Dr. Galen. Please find the below response to your query.


I recommend starting with topical analgesia and systemic NSAIDs like diclofenac for two weeks. If your symptoms remain severe after this initial treatment, you may consider adding six sessions of physiotherapy to your regimen. However, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional for a personalized assessment and to discuss the best course of action for your specific condition.
