The pain may last depending upon the condition and part of the spine that is affected by the pain. Its symptoms includes sharp burning sensation of the spine.

Basically, there are two types of back pains. It could be either an acute back pain or a chronic back pain. The former occurs in case of an illness or an injury, which is a  temporary state and fades away once the symptoms of the main illness is  are taken care of. On the other hand, chronic back pain persists even after the symptoms are treated. The recovery  process may take anything from a couple of months to a couple of years.
