Conservative Treatment

Conservative management is an approach to treating back pain, neck pain and related spinal conditions utilizing non-surgical treatment options, such as physical therapy, medication and injections. In the context of treating back pain, "conservative" treatment is not the inverse of aggressive treatment. Most episodes of back pain can be treated through conservative care and a combination of several conservative treatments is often recommended to alleviate pain and rehabilitate the lower back. If a condition requires emergency care, conservative management may be passed up for surgical intervention. In general, surgery for lower back pain is considered only if conservative treatments fail and the pain persists for an extended period of time and limits the individual’s ability to function. Conservative therapy may help reduce your pain level and enhance your ability to function on a day-to-day basis. The information can be published in our peer reviewed journal with impact factors and are calculated using citations not only from research articles but also review articles (which tend to receive more citations), editorials, letters, meeting abstracts, short communications, and case reports. The inclusion of these publications provides the opportunity for editors and publishers to manipulate the ratio used to calculate the impact factor and try to increase their number rapidly. Impact factor plays a major role for the particular journal. Journal with higher impact factor is considered to be more important than other ones.
