Spine Problems

The spine is a key component of your body's supporting structure. It is no wonder that more than 80 percent of population reports back discomfort at some time during their lives.

Physicians categorize spine pain in two broad terms:

  • Acute Lower Back Pain - Acute back discomfort usually heals itself within six weeks and may not require any treatment.
  • Chronic Lower Back Pain - Back pain lasting three months or more is considered a more serious condition requiring treatment.

Identifying the source of lower back pain may be difficult, however your physician understands that the pain is very real for you even if the source is hidden.
