Can Emotional Stress Cause Back Pain?

Could my divorce be giving me low back pain?

Stress can certainly take a toll on the body, and the low back is no exception. Research has shown that a host of psychological and social factors can lead to low back pain. A recent study showed that factory workers who didn't have a confidante were more likely to develop low back pain than those who had someone close to talk to. So as you're going through your divorce, find a friend or counselor you can confide in. Your back may thank you for it.
