The Stress-Pain Connection: Stay Mindful of Root Causes to Find Relief

Stress and chronic pain have a complex relationship, as they share significant conceptual and physiological overlaps. Pain and stress are both adaptive in protecting the body, but if either become chronic, it can lead to long-term suffering and compromised well-being. Constant stress can also lead to the worsening of pain, or vice versa. And persistence of stress, whether emotional or physiological, can deplete the body’s resources and increase its risk for disease.
