Types of Neck Pain

There are three general types of the pain: acute (pain that lasts less than 4 weeks), subacute ((pain that lasts 4 to 12 weeks), and chronic (pain that lasts 3 or more months).

Dr. Jose Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says chronic pain becomes more challenging in terms of treatment. Everything is possible. Patients can get better with a chronic condition, but it is more challenging than someone with an acute system.”
