What Is the Difference Between Acute and Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain lasts for at least 12 weeks. It persists even after an initial injury or the underlying cause of acute back pain has been treated.

Acute pain serves as a warning of injury or illness. However, chronic pain can continue for months or even years. It can be constant or intermittent, often disrupting daily activities and quality of life.

What Causes Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain can result from many factors, often making it complex to diagnose and treat. Some common causes include:

  • Injuries and Accidents: Traumas from accidents, falls, or sports injuries can lead to lasting pain if not properly healed.
  • Medical Conditions: Conditions such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and nerve damage can cause chronic pain.
  • Spinal Problems: Issues like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease are frequent culprits of chronic back pain.
  • Surgery: Sometimes, surgical procedures can lead to prolonged pain post-recovery.
  • Psychological Factors: Depression, anxiety, and stress can exacerbate chronic pain, creating a cycle that’s challenging to break.

The multifaceted nature of chronic pain requires a comprehensive approach to diagnosis and treatment. At Freedom Spine & Pain Center, we use a combination of advanced diagnostic tools and innovative therapies to identify and address the root of your pain.

Does Back Pain Run in Families?

Yes, back pain can have a genetic component. Research suggests that genetics can influence certain conditions, including:

If your parents or siblings have chronic back pain, you may be at a higher risk of developing similar issues.

How Can I Prevent Back Pain?

Preventing back pain involves adopting healthy habits and practices that support spinal health. Here are some strategies:

  • Maintain Good Posture: Always be mindful of your posture, whether you’re sitting, standing, or lifting objects. Proper alignment reduces stress on your spine.
  • Exercise Regularly: Opt for exercises that strengthen your core, back, and leg muscles. Activities like walking, swimming, and yoga are excellent for maintaining flexibility and strength.
  • Healthy Weight: Maintaining a healthy weight reduces the amount of strain placed on your back. Excess weight, particularly around the abdomen, can interfere with spinal alignment.
  • Ergonomics: Ensure your work environment supports good posture. Use chairs that support your spine’s natural curve and set up your computer screen at eye level.
  • Lift Properly: When lifting heavy objects, bend at your knees instead of your waist, and use your legs to lift. Avoid twisting your body while lifting.
  • Quit Smoking: Smoking can impede the flow of blood to the spine. This increases the risk of degenerative spinal conditions.
