What is back pain?
Back pain can originate from nerves, muscles, joints, bones or other structures in the spine. There are different types of back pain such as acute pain, chronic pain, and neuropathic pain.
Acute pain can last up to six months or is pain that is directly related to tissue damage. The longer the pain goes for the more susceptible it is to developing into chronic pain.
Chronic pain can be due to an injury. Structural spine conditions such as degenerative disc disease can cause ongoing pain until successfully treated.
Chronic pain can be influenced by ongoing pain signal input to the nervous system, lack of exercise, person’s perception of the pain and depression and anxiety.
Types of chronic back pain:
• Failed back surgery syndrome
• Chronic back pain without a clearly determined cause
Neuropathic pain is usually unrelated to the original injury or condition and certain nerves send out pain messages to the brain even though there is no ongoing message.
