Chronic back pain can be defined as having pain in your back for more then 3 continuous months. Now the term chronic back pain is vague and does not describe the type of pain or the reason for the pain. It is highly recommended that you get a proper diagnosis of your back pain in order to know what course of treatments you will need to consider.
There are two considerations you need to know about when you are getting evaluated, the first is the diagnosis proper and then you should also have the medical professional give you the physical reason why you have the condition that you do. More on the physical reason later because it may just hold the reason why the condition developed in the first place and the answer that has been overlooked in your treatments...
Getting a MRI or X-Ray of your back can give you your diagnosis but it can not tell you why you have the condition. And again the why is the key to getting rid of your chronic back pain.
In the absence of trauma, there are many different physical variables that can contribute to chronic back pain and your inability to get lasting relief. The most important is education about the way the body works and how to identify areas of the body that are not working properly or positioned properly.
Let's assume a body that is perfect, is in balance with it self, in harmony with its self and does not have pain of any kind, that is a reach for some I know but follow me for a minute.
If a body begins fall out of balance and out of harmony with its self, that body has begun the process of degenerative changes and the degenerative changes lead to chronic pain and when you only address the symptoms of the pain you accomplish nothing in the fight to get lasting relief.
In order to control degenerative change you need to identify them a then work backwards or in other work your body back to balance and that is the missing link for most chronic back pain suffers.
So if you and your health care professional can take the diagnosis and then look at the physical reason why you have your condition you will be on your way to relief of your chronic back pain.
If you would like more information on how to look for the physical reasons of your chronic back pain please read the article on Muscle Balance Therapy it this article we describe why traditional treatments fail and what you need to know in order to get lasting relief.
Let me also personally invite you to the worlds most active Back Pain Discussion Forum where you can get many of your answer to your question from medical professional and back pain suffer alike.
