ATLANTA, GA, January 17, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- It is a fact of life that, at some point, each of us will experience back pain. However, for most people, that pain is temporary and passes within a few days or weeks.
Back pain that does not go away on its own is generally considered to be chronic. The Atlanta spine doctors at Atlanta Spine & Alternative Pain Management Center know that chronic pain is unlikely to go away on its own and they recommend that patients who experience chronic back pain seek medical attention.
Chronic back pain can range from mild to excruciating, feeling anywhere from inconvenient to completely incapacitating, and it can come in episodes or be constant. The Atlanta pain center notes that it is often caused by trauma, but that trauma is not always the source of discomfort.
Unfortunately for patients with chronic back pain, the toll is more than just a physical one. The Atlanta pain management doctors have seen that patients with chronic pain often suffer from negative emotions like anxiety, stress, anger and depression, which are caused by their condition. These in turn decrease the body's production of natural painkillers and may even encourage the body to create hormones that amplify sensations of pain.
It is not necessary to live with chronic back pain. Even if you have seen doctors about it previously, the skilled physicians at Atlanta Spine & Alternative Pain Management Center may have a solution that you have not tried.
