Predicting Back Pain Recurrence Difficult

New research indicates that approximately one in four individuals suffering and recovering from acute (occurring suddenly) low back pain will have another episode of low back pain within the subsequent 12 months. Worse yet, predicting which individuals will likely have a recurrence is extremely difficult. This is why most chiropractic experts recommend not only getting yourself immediately checked out when back pain arises, but additionally recommend periodic spinal checkups to ensure your spine remains healthy, ultimately reducing the risk of spinal injury and back pain in the future.
