About the disease

Chronic spinal pain is the condition, when pain which originated in the spine, became continuous. There are two main types of chronic spinal pain: identifiable and unidentifiable pain generator. In the first case the condition was caused by an injury, during which spine underwent serious damage. This type can also be caused by chronic diseases of the spine, heavy lifting, and age. In the second type the cause of the pain is unknown and not related to disease or injury. Most often, the second type is related to problems with nerve endings. Unidentifiable pain generator can also be a spinal brain. which sends wrong electrical impulses down the spine.

Spinal pain diagnosis is given when pain lasts over 3 months and worsens in its intensity over the time. Most commonly chronic spinal pain is caused by problems with herniated disc. It has been for a long time believed the chronic spinal pain is caused by genetic anatomic deformities. It is not true. In 90% of patients with chronic spinal pain there is no anatomic deformity in the spine. Chronic spinal pain usually develops from an acute stage, when tissues of the back become damaged.

Symptoms

  • Nagging pain in the spine
  • Numbness
  • Pain in the lower back
  • Otosclerosis
  • Inability to stand or walk for long periods of time
  • Inability to lift weights or bend

Diagnosis

  • Diagnosis is usually carried out after several months have passed since the first symptoms of chronic pain appeared and they did not alleviate over this time. Diagnosis usually tries to determine the exact cause of chronic spinal pain to choose the most preferable treatment option.
  • Spinal X-Ray can show all the sections of the spine and determine if there is problem with some of its discs.
  • MRI or CT scan acquire the images of the spine and are more precise in detecting damages.
  • Nerve stimulation test determines if there is disruption with nervous system.

Treatment

Implantation of neurostimulator is a commonly used surgery for this type of spinal pain. During this surgery a neurostimulator is implanted into the back to deliver electrical signals to the epidural space through special wires. In most cases neurostimulator is effective in relieving the spinal pain. 

Spinal surgery is used if diagnosis showed exact cause of the pain, which can be eliminated by surgical intervention. For instance, herniated disc can be surgically repaired and alleviate the pain as well. Surgery is also used to treat such diseases as spinal stenosis and degenerative disc damage.

Injections are also used to relieve the pain, but they must be chosen individually for each patient.
