It’s generally known that emotional stress or psychological factors can make any back pain problem worse. The diagnosis of stress-related back pain assumes that psychological and emotional factors don’t just worsen the condition, but can be the cause themselves.
The diagnosis of stress-related back pain is a “psychosomatic” or “psycho- physiological” one, an illness whose physical symptoms are thought to be the direct result of psychological or emotional factors.
