Chronic nonmalignant pain is less a symptom of a disease than a disease in itself. Accordingly, successful treatments rely less on identifying underlying pathology than on treating neural causes of pain amplification, psychologic causes of disability, and the sequelae of deconditioning and psychiatric illness. The outcome, when such treatment is provided, is remarkably favorable.
