CHRONIC LOW BACK PAIN
WHAT IS CHRONIC BACK PAIN?
By definition, any pain lasting longer than six months is considered chronic pain. The most common cause is from a torn disc or discs. Facet joint arthritis is a less common cause of chronic low back pain. Treatment should only be considered if it interferes with everyday life. Physical therapy has never been scientifically proven to resolve the underlying source of chronic low back pain or neck pain.
