Chronic Pain Q & A

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is pain that lasts six or more months. Your body uses pain signals to let you know something is wrong. In most cases, your pain goes away once the underlying problem heals or resolves.

However, with chronic pain, your sensory nerves continue to send pain signals for weeks, months, or years, even after the injury or damage heals. You can also have chronic pain without a known injury. 

The Sprintz Center team of pain management physicians specializes in treating chronic pain. They offer many innovative non-addictive treatments that provide long-term pain relief. 

What are chronic pain conditions?

Many conditions lead to chronic pain. The team at The Sprintz Center treats chronic pain conditions such as:

Back pain

Chronic back pain may develop after an injury or from degenerative changes that affect the structure and function of your spine. 

Neck pain

Your neck is the most flexible part of your spine and is susceptible to injuries and overuse that lead to chronic pain conditions. 


There are many types of headaches that cause chronic pain. The Sprintz Center has physicians that specialize in diagnosing and treating all types of disorders that cause ongoing head and facial pain.

Joint pain

Arthritis is a common cause of chronic joint pain, which may affect your mobility and quality of life. 

Diffuse pain

Diffuse pain refers to chronic pain conditions that cause widespread pain like fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, and autoimmune disorders.

Chronic abdominal or pelvic pain includes any type of pain that affects this part of your body and lasts six or more months. For example, chronic pancreatitis, cancer, or pinched nerves may cause this type of chronic pain.
