How Long Should a Back Injury Take to Heal?

Most cases of acute (short-term) lower back pain are the result of damage to the muscles or ligaments of the lower back. While muscle or ligament strains don’t sound like serious injuries, the pain they present can be severe enough to warrant a trip to a chiropractor or hospital.

The good news is that the majority of lower back strains usually heal with time. Our Stoke on Trent chiropractor explains that the lower back contains large muscles which have a good blood supply. This facilitates the delivery of necessary nutrients and proteins for healing to occur. With good care and treatment, most strains in the lower back will resolve within 3-4 weeks. However, this will vary person by person.

People who are active are typically less likely to suffer from low back pain due to muscle or ligament strains, as regular exercise stretches the muscles so they are less likely to strain, spasm or tear.
