The One to One Team
Acute and chronic back pain is a common issue among adults affecting both men and women. At one point in our lives, most of us will experience it. There are several factors that can trigger this. A sore back can be the result of aging, an accident, or lack of exercise, among many others.
The pain can be sudden or increase over time. Either way, when the pain becomes too much to handle, it can also result in absences from work or missed appointments. In some cases, it can also lead to longer term disability if left untreated.
Back pain is often classified between acute and chronic.
Acute back pain is also referred to ask short-term back pain. It can subside within a few days or weeks. It can heal on its own, without the need for medications or complex treatments, but often, if left untreated, it can become chronic. Normal function is usually restored once the source of the pain is treated.
Chronic back pain, is pain that lasts up to 12 weeks or longer. In many cases you can still feel pain even after the underlying cause has been treated.
The right approach for treating a sore back depends on whether you’re experiencing acute or chronic pain. Here are common types of treatments used to relieve low back pain.
Physiotherapists are trained to diagnose the underlying causes of back pain. Our back consists of different structures such as nerve tissues, bones, ligaments, and muscles. And the pain you’re experiencing may be connected to either of these body parts.
Through a comprehensive assessment in our physiotherapy clinic here in Halifax, our physiotherapists can devise a treatment plan so you can manage, heal from, and keep your back pain from coming back.
