Behavioral Pain Management

Stress is perhaps one of the most common behavioral factors that interacts with physical factors in the experience of pain. When a person is stressed, the reaction is physical, mental, emotional as well as behavioral. Furthermore, the experience of pain itself is stressful so every chronic pain patient experiences stress to some degree.
