Neck and back pain are sometimes associated with psychological issues. This doesn't mean the pain is just in the individual's mind. Mental and emotional stress leads to a tense body. Stress also can make discomfort feel worse compared with times when a person is feeling relaxed and content. As holistic practitioners, chiropractors help reduce physical discomfort and also address the underlying reasons for back and neck pain.
Mental and emotional stress causes tension in the body and results in physical behavior that gives rise to back and neck pain.
