Chronic Neck and Back Pain Diagnosis and Treatment
Chronic Neck or Back pain describes pain that lasts longer than 6 months. Chronic pain can be mild or excruciating, episodic or continuous, merely inconvenient or totally incapacitating. With chronic pain, signals of pain remain active in the nervous system for weeks, months, or even years, taking both a physical and emotional toll on a person.
Depending on the underlying reason for the pain, myriad treatment options are available to help individuals experience relief from pain and restoration of quality of life.
