What Kind of Pain Do You Have?

Acute lower back pain can be the result of muscles spasms, tears and strains to any of the muscles or ligaments in the lower back region. Lifting heavy objects and overstretching are the most common causes and can lead to sciatica and a ruptured or herniated disk. These injuries will cause addition lower back pain and possibly leg pain. Aches can happen anywhere in your back. However, lower back pain is common since it is the part of your back that supports most of your body weight. The next type of body pain is called subacute. Subacute pain can last for 6 weeks up to 3 months. It differs from chronic pain because chronic pain can last more than 12 weeks.
