Pain Psychology Q & A

What is psychology?

Psychology is the study of the mind, how the mind works, and how it affects behavior and emotions. The psychology specialists at RehabOne Medical Group counsel you when you’re in distress due to injury, trauma, or chronic pain. 

What are common mental health disorders?

If you experience chronic pain, physical or emotional trauma, or a long-lasting injury, it might result in:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Panic disorder
  • Phobias

What are the symptoms of a mental health disorder?

If you experience a mental health disorder due to a chronic disease or illness, you might notice the following symptoms:

  • Constant sadness
  • Difficulty concentrating or confusion
  • Feeling fearful, worried, or anxious
  • Withdrawal from social activities and people
  • Extreme mood changes
  • Fatigue and sleeping problems
  • Inability to cope with stress or pain
  • Alcohol or drug abuse
  • Opiate addiction
  • Anger or suicidal thinking

If you experience one or more of these symptoms and need help, the experienced team of mental health professionals at RehabOne Medical Group is here for you every step of the way.

What should I expect during a psychology session?

At RehabOne Medical Group, you’re greeted by friendly staff in a warm, welcoming environment. Your provider reviews your medical history and symptoms, and asks you questions about your thoughts, behaviors, and emotions. 

Which treatments might I require?

Your personalized psychology treatment plan at RehabOne Medical Group depends on the type of pain or trauma you’ve experienced. Your doctor might recommend:

  • Individual counseling
  • Support groups
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Stress-management techniques
  • Behavioral therapy applications

Behavioral therapy applications include learning self-directed, nonmedical pain coping skills. Pain-management strategies your doctor might suggest include massage, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, movement therapy, other relaxation techniques, art therapy, and chiropractic care.
