Chronic Pain

Here are some of the most common chronic pain conditions that we can treat.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is defined as pain that lasts longer than several months without showing signs of decreasing.  For many adults, chronic pain is related to a spine condition that develops in the neck or back and can gradually worsen over time. Without the proper treatment, this pain may eventually prevent a person from enjoying daily activities or hobbies and can interfere with relationships and work.

If you’re experiencing chronic pain, you should consult your doctor to determine the cause. There are several factors that can cause continued pain in the neck or back, and diagnosing the source of your pain can help you find the right treatment for relief.

Causes of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain near the spine may be a result of nerve compression, which means a nerve in the spinal column has been constricted. This compression can be caused by a range of degenerative spine conditions, such as:

  • Spinal stenosis. This is the narrowing of the canal that surrounds the spinal cord, or the narrowing of the openings through which nerve roots exit the spine.
  • Bone spurs. Brought about by bone-on-bone contact within spinal joints, these excess growths can impinge upon spinal nerves.
  • Bulging or herniated discs. When a disc deteriorates, it can bulge or tear open, causing pressure on nearby nerves.

Many of these conditions develop as the spine naturally ages and wears down. For this reason, pain that results from these conditions may worsen over time without treatment.
