A Psychologist can help reduce pain9. Psychologists
Mental health experts are important for anyone suffering from any kind of chronic pain—whether the source is cancer, migraine headaches, lower back issues, or anything in between—because those who live with pain on an ongoing basis are more likely to get depressed. Once that happens, the depression itself can bring on additional discomfort, kicking off a vicious cycle. Psychologists can help stop that downward spiral in its tracks by providing the emotional support pain sufferers need.
