Psychosocial Factors in Back Pain

Psychosocial Factors in Back Pain

Here’s a 3 minutes and 13 seconds video Psychosocial Factors in Back Pain.

Historically the medical establishment has assumed back pain was solely based on physical causes.

Hinterland Chiropractic recognizes that pain can be an interplay between body and mind.

There are dual psychosocial causes of pain.

  1. Somatization – or physical pain based on a psychological disorder.
  2. Somataform – or physical pain with no apparent physical or psychological disorder, instead a mental disorder.

The important thing is that the pain is real and needs treatment.

Non-physical causes of back pain can include depression, anxiety, grief, or other conditions.

The physical root of back pain may be an injury or a vertebral subluxation (misalignment).

But psychosocial elements can worsen such pain by inducing tightness, spasm, and constriction.

Psychosocial wellbeing is important in reducing and treating back pain.

Chiropractic adjustments can deal with the physical causes of pain.

Your chiropractor can help you develop a psychological approach to back pain as well.

Positive thinking, mind-body techniques, deep breathing and social support can be combined for optimum results.

Chiropractic care can help treat ALL causes of your back pain.
