Did you know that back pain is one of the most common ailments? In fact, back pain can impact anyone, of any age, at any time.
While back pain can cause an array of symptoms, most people will classify their pain as either causing a mild discomfort or severe agony. It seems that when it comes to back pain, there is no moderate or middle ground. In the clinical world, back pain that comes on suddenly and persists less than six weeks is considered “acute”. Acute back pain is often attributed to a fall, an awkward movement or heavy lifting. By contrast, back pain that lasts more than three months is considered “chronic”. While chronic cases present less often than acute cases, they are by no means less painful. In many cases, individuals suffering from chronic back pain may be suffering from skeletal irregularities, degenerative disc disease and osteoarthritis.
