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 ... for eternity? Do you wonder why it continues to bother you for so long? You're not alone! But Groton back pain sufferers do find relief with our chiropractic care at Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office.

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 just 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 rigid definition of pain relief. (1) But not patients who seek help from Shoreline Medical Services/ Hutter Chiropractic Office.
