It may come as a surprise to you that many people with back problems can lead a nearly pain-free life. If you experience chronic back pain, you can be one of these people.
To determine how severe your back injury is and to keep from further injuring it, you should rest for a couple days after your pain starts. If the pain ends quickly, it was probably just a minor injury. Although, if you experience the same amount or an increase in pain, then a doctor or chiropractor will need to perform an examination to see what the cause of the problem is. If you spend more than two days resting, you will not cure the problem, and you may make it worse by letting the supporting muscles weaken furt
