How Long Does Back Pain Last?

Does it seem like you’ve been affected with lower back pain, leg pain, neck pain, and/or arm pain ... with no end? Do you wonder why it continues to bother you for so long? You're not alone! But Ashburn back pain sufferers do find relief with our chiropractic care at Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn.

There is an old saying that if you do nothing for your lower back pain or neck pain it will be gone in 6 weeks. Ever heard that? It’s plainly not true. The truth is that 33% of patients report back pain relief in the first 3 months, but 65% still report pain at one year after onset. A subgroup analysis of those patients still reporting pain after 1 year shows that 71% still report pain in studies that considered a total absence of pain as a criterion for recovery versus 57% for studies that used a less strict definition of pain relief. (1) But not patients who seek help from Poulin Chiropractic of Herndon and Ashburn. Our outcomes are usually better!
