Psycho-neurological factors and chronic pain

Posted on March 1, 2013 at 8:45 PM

The attached articles show just a few of the many links between psycho-neurological factors and chronic pain. In particular, the first article discusses the value of psychological interventions aimed at reducing stress levels as viable treatments for chronic pain. The second article refers to research which has found brain differeces in people who suffer from chronic pain, supporting the general proposition that psychology (and in reality, nueroogy) are more important in the production of chronic pain than are bio-mechanics in general, or structural pathology in particular.
