Common back diagnoses

Identifying the typical spine conditions

Back pain that gets better in six weeks or less is considered acute low back pain. It could be caused by a strain of a muscle, a sprain in a ligament, or degenerative arthritis. Low back pain is so prevalent that it's the second most common reason people seek medical advice, right behind the common cold. The only way to know if you have it is that it gets better.
