In order to figure out how severe your back injury is and to prevent worsening it, you need to rest for approximately one or two days once the pain begins. After taking x-rays, medical facilities can automatically send the images to their online cloud where they are secure and can be accessed or shared at anytime. This video shows how a online medical image storage or cloud based pacs system works.
Using Medical Cloud Storage For Images
If your back pain subsides after a few days, any injury was most likely minor. Then again, the pain could get worse or stay the same; in which case, you’d have to see a doctor or chiropractor to determine the cause. If you rest more than a few days, it could make the problem worse with increased risk of your muscles atrophying further.
To prevent back pain, pay attention to your posture; this is even true when you are sitting down. Painful back injuries can be the result of strenuous physical activity, bad posture, trauma and a variety of other problems. In reality, just the cumulative effect of bad posture over time can cause back injuries on par with those caused by hauling boxes around. Be sure to visit your doctor to get x-rays where they can easily store your medical images online in a PACS cloud solution.
A great back-pain-related tip to use is to act preemptively if at all possible. If you have a predisposition to back pain in your family, or if you’re at higher risk of back injury due to your lifestyle, you should see a chiropractor for some periodic adjustments. Be sure to see your medical doctor for diagnostic testing before seeing a chiropractor, to avoid serious damage.
