The bad news is that you’ve injured your back and you pretty much feel like you’ve been stamped on by a herd of elephants! Your pain may be aching or stabling, well defined or vague or it could even be radiating to your thighs and hips. But the goods news (yes, there is good news!) is that there’s about a 50% chance that your injury will completely resolve in about two weeks.
According to our Stoke on Trent chiropractor, acute back pain usually subsides spontaneously over time, as the irritated tissue heals. But what you do to look after your injured spine will play an important part in accelerating the healing process. Making an effort to maintain good posture, staying hydrated and keeping yourself active will support your spine as it begins to recover from the injury.
Remember that the duration and severity of an episode of pain does not necessarily echo the extent of the injury.
