Back Pain

Types of Back Pain

There are several types of back pain, but the most common types are acute low-back pain and chronic low-back pain.

Acute Lower Back Pain
Patients with acute low-back pain often improve on their own, through self-care, and stay active. If acute low back pain persist after four weeks, you can consider non-drug therapies, including Chiropractic manipulation. Chronic Lower Back Pain
Long-term use of pain medication usually does not improve functioning for patients with chronic low-back pain. Natural therapies, including spinal manipulation prove more beneficial. Psychological and social factors also contribute to chronic low-back pain. Most patients with chronic low-back pain will not become pain-free so treatment should be more focused on improving function and reducing pain.
