Cycle of mind and body interactions with chronic pain

Cycle of mind and body interactions with chronic pain

Chronic Low Back Pain is usually classified for back pain that persists for more than 3 months. In severe cases, intense pain can interfere with memory, concentration, mood and sleep. Ongoing pain is often present beyond the normal healing time of tissues within the low back. This is frequently seen as an over amplification of sensory signals into the spinal cord and brain, lowering the threshold for stimulation. Pain can then easily result in reduced activity, fear of movement and progressive deconditioning.

As difficult as this may be, the overall effect of this interaction is frequently seen with Chronic Low Back Pain and needs to be recognised before seeking a solution.
