Mental State and Chronic Pain

Brian Betancourt,Diana Solares

Brian Betancourt, Exercise Physiologist at Baptist Hospital South Florida, explains it is not easy to treat the psychological aspect of a chronic pain. "You have to keep in mind that everything that occurs in the body is a stress. Exercise is a stress, it's a good stress but it is a stress", he says and points out the physician has to take the patient to where the patient is comfortable at.

Diana Solares, Physical Therapist at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, highlights sometimes everything is great, but they are still having pain, so doctors have to dig a little bit deeper and talk about how the patient feels about that pain and the daily life to deal with the mental aspect of the pain.
