Now that spring is here, many people are in spring cleaning mode.  This means moving boxes around and the possibility of a back injury.  Lifting heavy objects puts a lot of strain on our bodies and many times we end up working too hard, resulting in back pain.  If you know this feeling you know how much of an inconvenient it is.  If you do have back pain, lay down, ice or heat the painful area, and take over the counter painkillers.  For many people back pain will go away with time and rest.

If you have persistent back pain it could be the sign of a much bigger problem that will only get worse with time.  Instead of suffering in pain come see us at AFC Urgent Care Waltham.  Our entire team would love to help get rid of that pain in your back!  We are staffed by board-certified physicians and are conveniently open 7-days a week from 8am to 8pm.  Our average wait time is under 15 minutes so you can get back to your daily routine as soon as possible.  Don’t let that pain in your back keep you from doing the things you love, come see us today!
