The two types of lower back pain most patients go through are acute and chronic lower back pains. Acute lower back pain usually starts as an immediate response to an acute injury, such as a lower back strain or a sports injury. It typically lasts less than 4 weeks. A chronic lower back pain commonly starts gradually and may or may not have an identifiable underlying cause. Pain is usually considered chronic once it has lasted at least 3 months.
If your lower back pain doesn’t improve after a week of low activity combined with anti-inflammatory medication, it’s advised to get checked out by a doctor. Here at Ascend Regenerative Medicine, we understand your pain and want to provide you with the help you need so you can be pain free!
