Don’t Delay On Receiving Care

According to the results of a 3-year follow-up study, having back problems evaluated early on is optimal. Moreover, staying as active as possible, when safe to do so, is also important. Those who wait for pain to simply disappear or think excessive rest will be beneficial are often doing more harm than good. If you do experience pain or discomfort, don’t delay on receiving care. Patients who get their health problems evaluated early on experience the fastest recovery times with the least amount of costs.
