Millions of Americans have ongoing back pain. It is one of the most common reasons people go to the doctor or miss work, and it is the leading cause of disability in people younger than 45, and many things can cause it.
Back pain can range from a dull, constant ache to a sudden, sharp pain that makes it hard to move. It can start quickly if you fall or lift something too heavy, or it can get worse slowly.
Acute pain starts quickly and lasts less than 6 weeks. It is the most common type of back pain. Acute pain may be caused by things like falling, being tackled in football, or lifting something heavy. Chronic pain lasts for more than 3 months and is much less common than acute pain. It is important to know that anyone can have back pain, but some things that increase your risk are:
- Poor physical fitness
- Other diseases
- Your job
