IF YOUR BACK ACHES FOR MORE THAN 3 MONTHS, SEE A DOCTOR

Do you have acute low back pain? This is a pain that is felt on the lower part of your back. If it is felt for about less than 3 months, it is consider acute lower back pain. Lower back pain may vary from person to person. Sometimes without treatment it can heal in several weeks. But if it persists, it may progress to chronic back pain. That will mean that the pain lasts for more than 3 months.

Most of the time the pain is caused by muscle strains. Although rare, there are few cases caused by some serious medical problem. Much to the surprise of many as many as 95 per cent of these back pain can be managed effectively and in 90 per cents, the patients recover within six weeks.

If the pain really bothers you, it is important to see your doctor. Some are consultant chiropractors which are trained in bones, spine, posture and also managing lower back pain.
