The American Chiropractic Association cites depression as the “Most common emotion associated with chronic pain,” indicating that experiencing chronic pain commonly results in sleep disturbances, inability to perform responsibilities at work or home and other symptoms.
Diagnosing lower back pain requires a comprehensive assessment by a professional qualified to evaluate and diagnose causes of lower back pain. A person typically undergoes a physical examination and diagnostic procedures. The patient reveals medical history and history of the pain.
