The focus of this study is chronic low back pain. The subject is the method of assessing the level of pain experienced by a patient with chronic low back pain. The purpose is to develop a system for assessing the condition of the musculoskeletal system. The system is designed to distinguish the level of pain experienced by the participant of the investigation. The methods used in this research are electroencephalography (EEG) and electromyography (EMG).The idea explored in this study involves the combination of EEG and EMG recordings in order to determine the level of localized pain. During this research, a block diagram of the system for assessing the condition of the musculoskeletal system with pain level recognition was developed. The signal acquisition block of the EMG portion of this system was also developed. A literature review is also carried out to determine the viability of EEG in the study of pain signals. The possibilities presented by this system can be applied in rehabilitation therapy for patients recovering from issues relating to chronic low back pain. It can also be applied in clinical and hospital diagnosis of patients experiencing chronic low back pain to determine the level of pain they are experiencing.
