Adversity helps cope with chronic back pain

This is according to a recent study by researchers at the University of Buffalo and UC Irvine.

The study's author Mark Seery, PhD, assistant professor of psychology at UB says: "It appears that adversity may promote the development of psychological and social resources that help one tolerate adversity, which in this case leads to better CBP-related outcomes. It may be that the experience of prior, low levels of adversity may cause sufferers to reappraise stressful and potentially debilitating symptoms of CBP as minor annoyances that do not substantially interfere with life."

Well, well, this is some discovery.

Actually, kind of common sense knowledge put in medical gobbledygook.

What the research has shown is that folks who have experienced some prior pain can take CBP in their stride. And folks who have never known any pain whatsoever will wilt under the slightest CBP.

Well, that figures!
