Numerous Thai Hospitals Have Earned Prestigious JCI Accreditation

And the first to meet Joint Commission International standards in the whole of Asia was Bangkok’s celebrated Bumrungrad International Hospital, meaning it was the first Asian facility to pass muster in over 350 international standards on their rigorous checklist.

Low Back Pain

Low back is the portion between the upper and lower body and bears most of the body weight. It is therefore not surprising that a lot of us get low back pains.

The common causes of back pain include:

  • Injury
  • Disc herniation
  • Age
  • Compression fracture
  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Depression

    Walking and maintaining good posture help with back pain. For more severe pain, a physical therapist may recommend specific exercises. Massage and acupuncture also help. Antidepressants aid in cases where back pain is due to depression. When these alternatives fail or when there is a structural deformity of the back or spine, surgery may be recommended.
