A common problem, back pain affects countless people and becomes more common with age. It has multiple causes, ranging from poor physical fitness to hereditary conditions. It generally lasts from a few days to a few weeks but can last longer. Most acute back pain is mechanical in nature. Pain from trauma may be caused by a sports injury, strain from heavy lifting, or a sudden jolt such as a car accident.
The pain can range from a dull overall ache to a sharp pain, even limiting range of motion or causing an inability to stand straight. Occasionally pain felt in one part of the body may “radiate” from a disorder or injury elsewhere in the body. Some acute pain syndromes can become more serious if left untreated.
