“Does Stress Cause Back Pain?"

Stress and anxiety in itself can give rise to a certain amount of back pain.  It can exacerbate an already painful condition and create feelings of doubt, desperation and fear.  These feelings can actually be quite normal for the average back pain sufferer.  But even a fair amount of stress can be considered by most health professionals to be “normal."

Stress may be defined as a certain demand placed on the adaptive capacities of the mind-body connection.    When we are able to adapt in a healthy way to a demanding situation, the kind of stress it generates can be a welcoming motivator in our lives.

When we are unable to “adapt” in a healthy way, stress can be become harmful both emotionally and physically.  Like that seen in people suffering from back pain.

What Causes Back Pain During Stress?

Stress should be viewed as neither a good or bad entity.  Only that events in our lives inevitably cause a certain amount of stress and our ability to cope with stress surrounding different events is essentially a key factor in how we may end up feeling.  Sub-consciously, our mind may use some pretty tricky coping mechanisms when dealing with stress.

1.       Extended work hours.

2.      Clashes with co-workers.

3.      Poor pay.

4.      Loss of a job.

5.      Loss of a loved one.

6.      Marital problems.

7.      Unrealistic expectations of oneself.
