Chronic back pain is defined as pain that lasts for more than three months. It can be caused by a variety of conditions, including vertebral misalignment, disc bulges or herniations, and muscle strains. Chronic back pain can also be caused by stress. When you’re stressed, your body releases hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline. These hormones can cause inflammation in the body, which can lead to chronic pain. In addition, stress can also make it more challenging to cope with pain. When you’re stressed, your mind is preoccupied with other things, and you’re less likely to focus on your pain. This can make it harder to manage your symptoms and get relief from your pain. If you’re struggling with chronic pain, it’s important to find ways to manage your stress levels.
