Low Back Pain Flares: How do They Differ From an Increase in Pain?

Low Back Pain Flares: How do They Differ From an Increase in Pain?



A flare up is a worsening of your condition that lasts from hours to weeks


Things that can cause a flare up are:sitting too long, being in an accident, slipping on a wet surface or sleeping in an incorrect position


Recent research looked at people with low back pain for over 3 months


On days where self reported flare ups where worse, most people had lower quality sleep, higher pain sensitivity, fatigue, disability and fear avoidance


Most people do not actually have greater levels of pain, but most likely worse PSYCHOSOCIAL features
