Types of Back Pain

Acute (lasts less than 4 weeks), subacute (4 to 12 weeks) and chronic (more than 12 weeks) are the types of back pain.
Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, says acute back pain is very common and everybody is going to feel some back pain in his or her life.
He explains the other two types are the reasons why we start visiting the doctor to receive a treatment. In the United States the cases of chronic back pain are increasing so the patient does not have to wait until the pain is unbearable to ask for help.
