If you are experiencing back pain it is important to define the type of pain you are experiencing. Being able to define the type of pain allows your professional medication practitioner to diagnose your condition and devise an effective treatment plan. Back pain can be defined as acute, chronic, or inflammatory.
Acute back pain is diagnosed as pain that lasts less than a month. Acute pain is experienced for a short-term basis, and most acute pain tends to resolve on its own. Usually with a few days of rest and home remedies, acute back pain will resolve on its own. When the underlying source of pain is removed or enough time has passed, pain will subside
However, if it does not, it may turn into chronic back pain. And this may require a more intensive approach to treatment.
Pain and Spine Specialists will locate the area of your back that is the source of your pain and create a successful acute back pain treatment.
Acute pain is directly related to tissue damage. Typically, acute low back pain is a result of a sudden injury to the back. Injured ligaments and muscles that support the back will send pain signals to the body. The pain may manifest due to muscle spasms or muscle strain in your back.
Common causes of acute sharp lower back pain:
Pain and Spine Specialists will complete a thorough physical examination and evaluation of your medical history to identify the best treatment course. This may include MRI’s, CT scans, referrals to physical therapy, injection therapy, and/or medication management.
