Stress can manifest in a variety of ways. Sometimes it feels like you’re carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders and other times it’s more subtle, such as feeling chronically tired or anxious. It may be hard to believe that stress could have an impact on your back and neck pain but research has shown that chronic stress can increase muscle tension in the upper body which contributes to inflammation and pain. If you are experiencing pain from any type of back injury, William Cappicotto MD is here to help, call our office today to schedule your consultation (716) 881-0382.
