Acute low back pain usually gets better with time, and there are simple things people can do at home to help manage pain and get back to normal activities. To help people with acute low back pain understand these strategies, the Informed Medical Decisions Foundation has developed a Shared Decision-Making® program called Acute Low Back Pain: Managing Your Pain through Self-Care.
