There is a connection between mental health and physical health, and it is important to care for both. Those with chronic pain conditions are at higher risk for experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, or insomnia. Similarly, those with serious mental health conditions are at a higher risk for developing chronic physical conditions.
Often lifestyle changes such as exercise, a balanced diet, and sleep help regulate both physical and mental health. Positive mental health such as decreasing stress can reduce the likelihood of heart disease and stroke. If you are interested in caring for your physical health by caring for your mental health, book an appointment with one of our therapists today.
