If you have acute or chronic low back pain, you’re not alone — nearly everyone experiences low back pain at some point in their life. However, when this pain persists it is important to employ a solution that will help alleviate this nagging and painful occurrence. Thankfully, acute or chronic low back pain solutions are at your disposal with Aspen Medical back braces!
Understanding acute & chronic low back pain
Acute, or short-term, low back pain generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks. Most acute back pain is mechanical in nature, meaning it is caused by trauma to the lower back or from a disorder such as arthritis. This trauma could stem from an old sports injury, doing chores around the house or garden, a car accident, or any other stress on your spinal bones and tissues.
Symptoms of acute back pain include:
- Muscle ache
- Shooting or stabbing pain
- Limited flexibility and/or range of motion
- Inability to stand straight
On the other hand, chronic low back pain is measured by duration and usually persists for more than 3 months. Chronic low back pain is often progressive and unfortunately the cause can often be difficult to determine.
