Sudden Back Pain

Sudden (acute) back injuries may be severe. Additionally, bruising and swelling may develop soon after the injury. Pain from an acute injury usually does not last longer than 6 weeks.

Acute injuries include sprains and strains, fractures or dislocations of the spine, torn or ruptured discs, and compression of nerves in the lower back.
