Psychophysiologic Disorders Association Website
Many years of clinical experience and considerable recent research has shown that stress, trauma and repressed emotions are capable of causing persistent real pain and other physical symptoms. This is what we call a Psychophysiologic Disorder (aka PPD or MindBody Disorder). Unfortunately, there is no conclusive diagnostic test for this condition so the single most common question patients have is whether their personal symptoms could be caused by PPD. This page is designed to help you with this question.
