• Back pain or ache is usually not due to serious disease.
  • Most back pain settles quickly, at least to a stage where you can get on with your normal life.
  • Back pain can be very painful and you may need to reduce some activities for a time or even bed rest for a short initial period. But rest for more than a day or two usually does not help. It may do more harm than good because you tend to stiffen up. Keeping generally mobile is the accepted way forward.
  • Your back is designed for movement, and the sooner you get back to normal activity the sooner your back will feel better. Although, be aware that, this needs to be a graded return.
  • People who stay active and retain their normal pattern of activity, despite the pain, tend to respond better to treatment.
