What is pain?
Pain may be defined as either an acute or chronic condition that can interfere with an individual's overall mental state and daily activities such as work, recreation, and relaxation. Back pain can make sleeping difficult or even impossible, causing fatigue, irritability, and a feeling of isolation. For many people, back pain is an ongoing condition from which there is no relief.
Acute Back Pain
The National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke defines acute or short-term low back pain as generally lasting from a few days to a few weeks. Most acute back pain is the result of trauma to the lower back or from a disorder such as arthritis. Pain from trauma may be caused by a sports injury, work around the house, or a sudden jolt such as a car accident or other stress on spinal bones and tissues. Symptoms may range from muscle ache to shooting or stabbing pain, limited flexibility and range of motion, or an inability to stand straight.
Chronic Back Pain
Chronic back pain may be defined as "nonspecific" long lasting, recurrent pain usually present for three months or more. Chronic back pain is nonspecific because in most cases the cause is unknown or difficult to pin down. The constant presence of chronic pain can not only affect a person's physical well being, but may also affect a person's emotional state. Chronic pain does not normally respond to the same treatments used for acute pain. Physical causes of chronic pain and symptoms such as sciatica can often be attributed to degenerative disc disease, herniated/bulging discs, and posterior facet syndrome.
