Research has found there is a strong link between emotions and chronic illness or chronic pain. Chronic pain and illness can be linked to elevated stress levels, sleeplessness, depression, suicidal thoughts and grief.
Here’s what we want you to know: these are all very common responses to what you’re going through. These chronic issues are complex as they include components that are biological, psychological and emotional. Treating these symptoms appropriately requires that we adopt a holistic approach, which means we address all of these symptoms as they relate to one another. In fact, current approaches to pain management recommend an integrated and inclusive approach to symptom management.
Another interesting fact: physical pain and emotional pain are processed very similarly by the brain. This new finding in the medical community has led to a deeper understanding of the importance of psychotherapy when managing pain and chronic illness. Individuals who do not address unpleasant emotions may, in fact, experience more physical pain.
At Lifeologie, our therapists are passionate about partnering with your medical team and coordinating to ensure that you’re receiving excellent care and support, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.
