The Fear - Pain Cycle

  1. Thoughts based on fear or worry stimulate the Nervous System

 

  2. Each negative thought generates tiny electrical impulses that travel down  the Spinal Cord and out through the nerves.

 

  3.They make the muscles contract, shorten, each time becoming more tensed, tight and painful.

 

  4. This causes more fear and worry, more negative thoughts, which stimulate the nervous System...and back to square 1...
