Back Pain: How Long is Too Long?

Back pain can strike at any time. But how long can you expect it to last?

According to our London chiropractor, the time it takes for back pain to resolve may depend on the cause of your symptoms.

Lower back pain caused by usual stresses and strains will typically ease within a few weeks.  However, the recovery process is often determined by the kind of treatment received or the severity of the damage. In some serious cases, where specialised attention and therapy is needed (such as pain caused by degenerative conditions like arthritis) symptoms may take much longer to heal.

The bottom line is that the sooner the cause of your back pain is discovered, the easier and quicker it can be treated.

Don’t put up with back pain. It is never too late to start properly managing your symptoms.
