COVID stress cycle…The real culprit of physical pain?

By:

Vidhi Shastri, PT, CFMT

Emotional response (fear, anxiety, grief, frustration) to COVID 19 can lead to adverse effects on physical health. Wondering how? Stress releases chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol which leads to increased heart rate, tightening muscles in the body, eventually leading to musculoskeletal limitations causing physical pain such as low back, neck, shoulder, hip, knee pain, etc..

I will be posting follow up articles explaining each phase of the cycle, its effects on the body and how to manage them.
