A strained back can happen in a split second, but may take days or weeks to return to normal. When the back muscle becomes torn or strained, inflammation spreads through the muscle, making it feel like every fiber in the back is on fire.
Generally, a strained back isn’t a serious injury, but it definitely results in serious pain. If the condition continues for more than a couple of weeks with conservative treatment, it may indicate that further damage has occurred.
Some of the most frequent complaints of strained back injuries come from athletes. Runners, football players, cyclists, boxers, and other athletes are all extremely susceptible to back pain. Fortunately, many professional athletes have discovered the rapid response of stressed muscles to Blood Flow Stimulation Therapy.
Pain from a strained back often increases when the supporting muscles are allowed to atrophy. Lack of use often leads to a buildup of lactic acid in the muscle, which only adds to the pain.
