Types of Back Pain

Amir Mahajer, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health Neuroscience Center, explains the difference between chronic low back pain and acute low back pain. “It’s really a time course, you have acute pain which means pain being going on for less than four weeks and then you have chronic pain when the pain is going on for greater than twelve weeks,” he says.

He also explains the mattress plays a big role. If you have no back pain, you can sleep in whatever position you want, but if you have back pain, you want to have a firm mattress and the preferred sleeping position is on your back.
