Pain associated with emotional trauma therapy

What is pain associated with emotional trauma?

Emotional trauma is when one is exposed to a shocking and terrifying event – either witnessing or experiencing it. One can develop some emotional or physical symptoms in response to the trauma; when the symptoms are intense enough, a diagnosis of post traumatic stress disorder will be given.

Treatment for pain associated with emotional trauma

When treating pain or dysfunction associated with emotional trauma, a whole-body approach needs to be considered. The assessment takes into account the tissue tension and body alignment, the patient’s body awareness and connection, joint mobility, and the function of the autonomic nervous system. In addition to gentle hands-on treatment, patients will be instructed physical and mindful exercises to restore the mind and body balance and calm their nervous system.
