Physiotherapy for back pain is one of the most common treatments these days as there are many people affected with severe pain in their backs. Back pain is one such disease that most of us have either encountered or will encounter at some point in life. It can become chronic if it lasts for more than three months. Both men and women are likely to be affected by the chances of back pain. The pain gets intense gradually if not taken care from the very beginning. However, there are cases such as accidents or lifting a heavy object, where the pain can take place abruptly.
It is classified into two types such as acute (one that comes suddenly and lasts for not more than two to three months) and chronic (one that takes a gradual process to develop, stays for nearly four months and leaves an enduring effect).
