Study suggests social interaction can 'ease pain'

18th October 2012

A new study has suggested companionship and social interaction could help patients recover more quickly from pain linked to nerve damage.

The charity BackCare say the findings by a US team have merit and agreed that psychology played an important role in the level of suffering experienced by some patients. The charity’s head of research Dr Adam Al-Kashi said: “Research evidence demonstrates that social and environmental interventions can have a tremendous impact on health, and they could certainly become the basis of new and effective therapeutic approaches.”
