Acute Pain

Acute pain is generally sudden in onset and associated with a specific event. Trauma, work or sports injuries, and surgery are common causes of acute pain. Anything that causes damage to the tissues or bones in and around the spine or joints can lead to acute pain. This type of pain typically lasts less than three months and doesn’t last longer than six months.
