Back PainQ: I’ve hurt my back, how long does it take to recover?
A: Seven out of ten people experience low back pain. It can last from a few days to a few weeks, but 80% of people with low back pain recover within 6 weeks. If pain worsens or extends longer than this time frame, you should see a doctor. They may recommend that you see a physical therapist. There are specialized exercises and manual therapy techniques that a therapist can provide to help you recover from your injury.
