Emotional States Leading to Different Types of Pain

Body PainWhile feeling pain in any part of the body, most of the people thinks that it is just because of physical injury but now the experts have revealed that the emotional states leads to different types of pain. Yes it is true, according to a psychologist named Dr. Susan Babel, chronic pain cannot be only caused just because of physical injury but it could be happened by emotional states and stress.

“Studies have shown that chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injury but also by stress and emotional issues.” Also, “Physical pain functions to warn a person that there is still emotional work to be done”, Dr. Susan Babel stated.

The following are the body parts where pain could be just because of emotional states:


If you are feeling chronic headache, it may be just because of your busy schedule and you must need to give sometime to yourself.


Pain in the neck could be just because of having issues with someone. So if you are feeling pain in your neck, forgive people and you should also have to forgive yourself on any issue you are facing.


Pain in both the arms and elbows could be just because of lack of flexibility.


Pain in the knees could be happened when you are feeling something high for yourself. In this situation, feel free and spend some time in voluntary services.


Depression could be a main cause of foot pain and you must try to find out some new changes to get engaged with them.


If you are feeling pain in your hands, try to make some good friends because it could be just because of lack of sincere friends in life.
