Recent researches done by the American psychologists showed that bad back could be mostly in the mind and that those suffering from backaches could benefit the most from psychological therapies.

It has been found that talking therapies like counseling and cognitive behavioural therapy were effective in reducing the back pain intensity.

It is amazing that psychological therapies began several decades ago in order help patients deal with their pain and not actually reduce the pain and such positive effects came as a surprise.

Another independent research published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine suggested that physical treatments offered by chiropractors and osteopaths often had no more than a placebo effect indicating that the back pain could be in the heads of the sufferers.
