Back pain is a widespread complaint and popular reason for doctor visits and absences from work. While back pain affects people of all ages, it is significantly more common in adults between the ages of 35 and 65 years. Acute pain is the most common type of back pain, lasting no longer than six weeks. Chronic pain can come on quickly or slowly and lasts for an extended period, generally three months or longer.
