Every human being has anxiety as a necessary survival trait. Every cell in the human body has evolved to survive – not to have a great time. Unfortunately humans become anxious in the face of perceived threats in addition to real ones. The result is that the hormones adrenaline and cortisol are secreted much more often than needed. These are the chemicals that create the “flight or fight response.”

In this episode, spine surgeon Dr. David Hanscom explains how chronic pain can lead to an over-adrenalized nervous system, and a cycle of anxiety, anger and more pain. He also discusses first steps individuals with chronic pain can take to break that cycle. For more information, go to http://www.backincontrol.com/anxiety-anger-and-adrenaline-3
