Sometimes our brain fights against us as we try to recover from our back pain. If the pain signal persists without a break over time, the neurological “trail” from the injury to the brain becomes a superhighway that continues to run full speed even when the stimulus for the pain is no longer there; resulting in chronic back pain that can be difficult, but not necessarily impossible to treat. 

The National Institutes of Health reports more than 25 million people in the U.S. live with chronic pain. Chronic pain is pain that lasts for more than three months. The most common type of chronic pain is chronic back pain. If you have chronic back pain, there is help for you. 

How your healthcare provider interacts with you is important. Their style can shape how you feel about your treatment. A new study found that people experienced less pain when the treatment provider expected a pain reliever to work. You can count on the doctors at Connected Whole Health to help you sort your chronic pain out and work with your other healthcare team to help you to break the chain of pain.
