Oh yes, you can. Of course, each case of back pain requires an individual solution. But there are a great number of resources available for any back pain sufferer who chooses to be proactive and help get rid of the pain and its source. Moderate exercise, back-strengthening and other measures can in most cases effectively help you overcome your pain.
The sooner you resume sports and your daily activities, the better. If these measures do not help, ask for an evaluation from your doctor. Being in pain for a longer period of time can take a lot of energy, be stressful, and can have negative effects on your psychological well-being and the immune system. The sooner you forget the misconception that back pain is some sort of disability that you must accept, the better.
