Frequently Asked Questions

Mind-body or psychophysiologic disorders arise from the intricate interplay between our mental state and physical well-being. Mind-body disorders are sometimes also called TMS, PPD, or neuroplastic conditions. They refer to conditions where psychological factors, such as stress or emotional distress, significantly influence physical symptoms or impairments. Common examples include irritable bowel syndrome, tension headaches, and certain forms of chronic pain. There can be a link between childhood trauma or adverse childhood experiences and the later development of mind-body disorders. Understanding the connection between one’s mind and body is crucial for effective treatment.

Therapy to treat chronic pain can help you retrain your brain to interpret bodily signs and sensations in a different way. It can also assist you in working through the underlying thoughts and feelings that may be causing or contributing to your pain in the first place.

Pain that responds well to psychotherapy tends to be different from other types of pain in important ways. This type of pain tends to be inconsistent, changing from day to day or week to week. Sometimes it can spread or move throughout the body. It tends to be triggered by stress or by other triggers that are non-physical in nature. Many people with this type of pain report that the pain began during a stressful time in their lives, and they have trouble identifying a specific injury that caused their pain. If this sounds familiar to you, it may be helpful to talk with a therapist about your pain. Most importantly, if you’ve tried numerous medical interventions and nothing has worked, or if your doctors cannot figure out what is wrong or what is causing your pain, psychotherapy for chronic pain may be a good option for you.

Yes, studies indicate that women frequently report experiencing pain in a manner that’s more intense and prolonged than men. They might also be more susceptible to certain chronic pain conditions, such as fibromyalgia or migraines. Several factors, including hormonal fluctuations, biological differences, and societal roles and expectations, can contribute to these variances.

Treatment for chronic pain often focuses on managing your symptoms and learning to cope with them. Our approach is rooted in the belief that pain is not something you need to learn to live with. By directly addressing the root of the problem, we focus on symptom reduction, and for some people, symptom elimination.
