Chronic back pain has the ability to immobilize people with pains shooting through lower back, numbing one or both legs and making life very difficult. Back surgery is not the only cure for back pain, but for the chronic ones, it is one of the best and most common solutions. Chronic pain disorders such as, Tension Myositis Syndrome are known to be caused by inner tension. Learn all about these pain disorders caused by mental and emotional factors and how to heal from them.

Chronic pain is the opposite of pain asymbolia. It's what happens when our brain can't stop generating the negative emotions associated with painful sensations. Chronic low back pain can be shooting, stabbing, localized in nature, or referred from another part of the body. In some cases, people with chronic low back pain are found to have distinct pain syndromes, including arthritis, myofascial pain with muscle spasm, degenerative joint disease and radiculopathic pain (pinched nerve). Chronic lower back pain usually has a more insidious onset, occurring over a long period of time. Physical causes may include osteoarthritis , rheumatoid arthritis , degeneration of the discs between the vertebrae , or a spinal disc herniation , a vertebral fracture (such as from osteoporosis ), or rarely, a tumor (including cancer ) or infection.

Chronic back pain and its sequelae can influence cognitive, affective, and neuromuscular functioning. Speech production—a complex sensorimotor activity—integrates shared cognitive, neuromuscular, and musculoskeletal resources, and therefore could be altered by chronic pain. Chronic back pain is often described as a deep aching or dull burning pain in the back or traveling down the legs. Symptoms may be tingling, burning, numbness or a pins-and-needs sensation in the legs.

Chronic back pain is usually due to one of two scenarios. The first is a physical condition that is not identified, or incorrectly identified, as the cause of the pain. Chronic back pain tends to be very difficult to treat, especially in cases involving failed back surgery or neuropathic pain ("nerve pain"). Chronic back pain can make you miserable for years on end. Fortunately, both chronic back pain and chronic neck pain both respond favorably to the heat and stimulation created by light therapy.

Treatment of acute back pain is short-term and usually successful. With physical therapy , follow-up treatment, and prevention practices, these patients typically return to full functionality in a few weeks. Treatment for sciatica and low back pain is usually conservative; surgical is rarely necessary. Treatment aims to relieve pressure on the sciatic nerve. Treatment can include rest, exercise, medication and manipulation. Staying active is an important part of managing back pain .
