In this paper the chronicity of pain in non-specific pain syndromes is discussed. Experts in the study of pain with several professional backgrounds in rehabilitation are the authors of this paper. Clinical experience and literature form the basis of the paper. Non-specific low back pain and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome type I (CRPS-I) are discussed in the light of chronic pain. Many definitions of chronic pain exist. Yellow flags are important factors to identify possible chronic pain. In… 
Complex regional pain syndrome in adults: concise guidance.
TLDR
UK guidelines have recently been developed for diagnosis and management in the context of primary and secondary care and the purpose of this concise guideline is to draw attention to these guidelines.
Living with Back Pain : a Biopsychosocial Analysis of Contributing Factors
TLDR
The findings supported the creation of new diagnostic and measurement tools for chronic back that include psychological and social measures in addition to biological indicators and offered renewed backing for interdisciplinary approaches to the treatment of chronic back pain in light to its multifaceted nature.
Chronic pain: a concept analysis
TLDR
The results may help other researchers in developing a model and theory related to this topic by illuminating the chronic pain concept and regarding the fact that theories are building blocks for formulating theories.
Chronic pain profile: An interaction between biological and psychosocial factors *
TLDR
The results suggest that the chronification process of pain and its functional consequences vary between individuals and are influenced by emotional factors.
Coping with chronic complex regional pain syndrome: advice from patients for patients
TLDR
This study provides support both for the argument put forward by Redman that without appropriate preparation and support, self-management is ineffective, and that by Skuladottir and Hallsdottir that the main challenge of the chronic pain trajectory is that of retaining a sense of control.

Disability associated with pain—A clinical approximation of the mediating effect of belief and attitudes
TLDR
Results showed that pain beliefs are partial mediators of the relation between chronic pain and disability, and when depression was added to the model, there was a significant increase in the explanation of disability variance, indicating that this variable is an important factor associated with functional limitation.

CHRONIC PAIN: A COMMUNITY-BASED EXERCISE AND EDUCATION PROGRAM
TLDR
It is suggested that a community-based program for individuals with chronic pain can improve physical function and psychosocial well-being and further effort is required to establish such programs in communities for individualswith chronic pain.
Evaluating physical functioning as part of a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy approach in treatment of people suffering from chronic pain.
TLDR
Findings suggest that the pain management intervention, that includes physical activity designed to help patients to live a healthier life, can have a clinically assessable impact on reducing PI and PS, improving physical functioning and HRQL.

TLDR
A biopsychosocial model of chronic pain is described and an update on research implicating the importance of people's appraisals of their symptoms, their ability to self-manage pain and related problems, and their fears about pain and injury that motivate efforts to avoid exacerbation of symptoms and further injury or reinjury are provided.
The Prediction of Chronicity in Patients With an Acute Attack of Low Back Pain in a General Practice Setting
TLDR
The results suggest that, at the earliest stage of low back pain, fear of pain should be identified by clinicians and, where this is severe, pain confrontation should arguably form part of the approach to treatment.
Models of Diagnosis and Rehabilitation in Musculoskeletal Pain-Related Occupational Disability
TLDR
A systematic analysis of the theoretical and empirical literature on pain-related disability was undertaken to identify current conceptual models of diagnosis and rehabilitation and focused on the key theoretical tenets of each model.
[The sensitization model: a method to explain chronic pain to a patient].
TLDR
There is growing evidence that many chronic-pain syndromes, such as chronic low-back pain, whiplash and fibromyalgia, share the same pathogenesis: sensitisation of pain-modulating systems in the central nervous system at both spinal and supraspinal level.
Muscle strength in patients with chronic pain
TLDR
A strength reduction of 20–30% in a painful limb seems to be ‘normal’ in chronic pain patients.

TLDR
Although today there is a better understanding of pain, the pathomechanism of low back pain is unknown, for patients with sciatica, spondylolisthesis, and spinal stenosis, physicians are beginning to get a better perception of what causes the pain.
[Psychological mechanisms in the transition from acute to chronic pain: over- or underrated?].
TLDR
Psychosocial factors are significantly related to the onset of back pain as well as to the development of chronic pain and the psychological factors displayed more predictive power than biomedical or biomechanical variables.

Behavioural treatment for chronic low back pain.
TLDR
Behavioural treatment seems to be an effective treatment for chronic low back pain patients, but it is still unknown what type of patients benefit most from whattype of behavioural treatment.
