How Long Does it Take to Heal?

Lower back injuries can be one of the most debilitating injuries of the body, but it often varies on healing time based on severity and mechanism of the injury. Minor muscle strains or sprain typically heal within a few days or weeks depending on measures taken to help the healing process. More severe injuries such as herniated discs, fractures, nerve impingement can take several weeks to months.  In chronic lower back pain due to degeneration can take a lifetime and constant management of physical therapy, non-invasive treatment and last resort surgery. 

Having a proactive approach of proper lifting techniques, back support, lower back brace, exercises for strengthening and mobility can help in the long run in reducing lower back injuries and timeline of healing. 


Treatment for lower back injury typically involves a combination of treatments to manage the pain. This is always dependent on severity and cause of the lower back pain.
