Neck Pain Classifications
The three neck pain categories are:
Acute pain involves sudden onset and is usually the result of an injury or stress. Acute pain may resolve itself and care usually involves pain medication to hold a person over until the pain goes away.
Chronic pain, by definition, has to last at least 3 months. When conservative methods of relieving pain are exhausted, a doctor may recommend drastic measures such as surgery to correct an underlying issue.
