Most people will experience back pain during their lifetime. Some patients fear the worst, especially when pain is acute or severe. The most common cause of back pain is sprain or strain, although pain can be so intense and severe that the cause may be attributed to a vertebral fracture , disc disorder , or tumor .
Sprains and strains often result from excessive physical demands on the back . Lifting something too heavy, a sudden fall, car crash, or sports injury can cause soft tissues (ligaments, muscles, tendons) to stretch too much.
Inhaled corticosteroids are medications used to treat asthma. They are taken by using an inhaler. This medication should be taken consistently so that it decreases inflammation in the airways of your lungs and prevents asthma flare-ups. Inhaled corticosteroids are considered the most effective long term usage medication for control and management of asthma. Depending upon the severity of your asthma, your physician may combine an inhaled corticosteroid with a long-acting beta-2 agonist to treat your condition. Oral and intravenous corticosteroids may be required for acute asthma flare-ups or for severe symptoms.
