Israeli Researchers: Strong Psychosomatic Processes Are Implicated In Chronic Physical Pain

The study appears on line as a publication ahead of print in the prestigious medical journal Psychosomatic Medicine.

To what extant does chronic pain result from a person’s psychological problems. A lot, according to researchers from Israel’s Ben Gurion University in the Negev.

In a study conducted by a team of researchers from BGU (Dr. Sheera Lerman and Prof. Golan Shahar), Soroka University Medical Center (Drs. Zvia Rudich and Hadar Shalev), and Soriasky/Ichilov Medical Center (Dr. Silviu Brill), strong support was found for the centrality of psychosomatic processes in chronic physical pain.

The study appears on line as a publication ahead of print in the prestigious medical journal Psychosomatic Medicine.

Chronic pain is arguably one of the greatest challenges of modern medicine. It pertains to a host of medical conditions (e.g., chronic low back pain, complex regional pain syndrome, fibromyalgia, diabetic neuropathy, etc.), many of which are poorly understood from the biological perspective.

These conditions are also difficult to diagnose and treat, and the suffering and burden they incur on individuals, families, and societies are devastating. Many patients with chronic pain suffer from depression and anxiety, although the direction of causality between pain and depression/anxiety remains unclear.
