  Title Literature Review. Back pain: what is happening when it becomes chronic? [review]
Journal Clin Chiropr. 2009 Mar;12(1):45-51
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Review
Abstract/Notes In the absence of pathology most back pain settles quickly; however, for a significant minority of patients, the symptoms and disability it causes endure, often for a protracted time.

It is not believed that this ongoing pain is related to persisting tissue damage but is rather a consequence of inappropriate adaptions to the original pain or predisposing factors within the individuals.

This paper reviews the available evidence for the role of mechanical, neurological, psychological, social and genetic factors surrounding chronicity in back pain.
