Historically, you're not really supposed to be able to do this. The whole point of a PDF is really that it's not editable and preserves formatting. With that said, Word 2013 and later should be able to open PDFs. Just try opening the PDF and you should be prompted to convert it to Word. I'd recommend against doing this, or at least doing it too often, as you'll frequently mess up formatting when converting.
