Emotional Causes Of Pain
When our body suffers from some physical pain, most of the time the first thing we think is that we made a bad movement, that we slept in a weird position, or something related. We rarely stop to think that all our physical pain can be a consequence of our emotions. Our bodies and emotions are inextricably linked because the body and mind can merge. Poorly managed emotions and stress can manifest as diseases such as headaches, stomach pain, neck pain, back pain, joint pain, and so on.
How Can I Relieve This Emotional Pain?
Physical Rehab Therapy
Most pain patients benefit from rehabilitation therapy as part of their treatment plan. The rehab therapist is trained to help you learn to stretch, strengthen, and exercise your painful body part in a safe and effective way. It is important that rehab therapy be coupled with education so that patients can be empowered to take charge of their own recovery.
Physical rehab therapy can also help you relieve your pain through massages, which will help you relax and take the stress out of your body.
Acupuncture stimulates the nerves in skin and muscle tissue and increases the body’s release of endorphins (natural painkillers) in the pain pathways of the spinal cord and brain. Acupuncture is therefore frequently used to treat musculoskeletal pain, such as back, shoulder, neck, and leg pain. It is also successfully used to treat:
- Trapped nerves
- Chronic muscle strains
- Sport injuries
- Arthritic and rheumatic pain
Talk About It
Releasing emotions, feeling them, and talking about them with someone is a very beneficial practice for recovering from your physical pain, which is why we recommend you see an expert in emotional therapy. Through therapy, the psychologist will help you feel better and release your emotional burden by verbalizing your problems with someone who is not there to judge you but to help you. It will teach you tools and strategies so that you can solve the conflicts that arise as well as perceive them differently.
