|Psychological Factors and Back Pain
Every morning it’s the same thing. As soon as Joe’s feet touch the floor, the pain in his lower back starts up just where it left off the day before. It’s bad enough that he’s having problems at work. But now he’s plagued with low-back pain too.
But in addition to visiting his chiropractor to alleviate his back pain, Joe may want to visit a career counselor as well. Joe’s work stress could actually be playing a role in his low-back pain (LBP).
Psychological distress can make an already bad back situation worse by creating negative connections between the mind, body and spirit. Your doctor at Chiropractic for Life knows that there is an undeniable connection between emotional and physical health. Consequently, our chiropractic office focuses on teaching patients to consider the emotional as well as physical triggers of disease.
Are you suffering from LBP? If so, make an appointment for an adjustment today. Because regardless of what is sparking your LBP, one thing is certain: Chiropractic care can help! While you are healing, we encourage you to identify and address any underlying stress or emotional factors that may be playing a role.Dr. Barbara Smith
