Back Pain

Back pain is common but most cases aren't caused by a serious problem.

Most cases of back pain get better on their own within a few weeks.

Stay active. Bed rest for more than a couple of days makes it harder to get going. Gradually increase your normal activities and do regular exercise.

Take painkillers if needed so you can stay active.

Your pain should ease within 2 weeks and you should recover over
approximately a 4–6 week period.

If the pain is severe or not improving after a week or so contact your doctor.
