6-12 weeks = Subacute pain (self healing, no doctor consultation needed)
3-6 months = Subchronic pain (self healing, no doctor consultation needed)
> 6 months = Chronic pain (where is the pain coming from? doctor consultation)
90% of patients with one or more episodes of back pain heal without intervention
5-10% of chronic back pain patients (>6-9 months) need diagnosis and treatment
The spinal column needs strong back muscles to keep in healthy balance. Many factor have
negative influence: overweight, poor body posture, congenital disorders like spondylolysis,
degenerative disc disease (DDD), disc herniation, bone spurs, osteophytes, facet joint arthritis etc. But … symptoms and restrictions should be concordant, we have to treat
individuals, not the imaging. Also general diseases like hip arthritis, prostate cancer, gall bladder disorders, stomach problems, bladder problems, severe osteoporosis, cancer metastasis, Tick bite Lyme disease, etc. etc. have to be excluded during diagnostic review.
Only 5-10% of chronic patients need an unbiased diagnostic reviewing with accurate history, blood tests, focused imaging to get the answer where is your pain coming from?
