Low Back Pain

Why do I get back pain?


Activities that can contribute to back pain include lifting, reaching, twisting, sitting for a long time, or doing repetitive work. Stress, anxiety, and poor sleep can also contribute to low back pain.

Will my pain go away?


The duration of pain can vary from one individual to another. Pain can last a few days, weeks, or months. Receiving treatment may relieve the pain and help you return to activities you enjoy.

What can I do?


To help speed up recovery, it is important for you to participate in your care with your healthcare provider. In addition, continue day-to-day activities even if you experience some pain (within reason).
