The mental health of the person and its connection to physiological ailments has been proved in research. There is much evidence of psychological knowledge in the interventions for chronic pain. However, the application of this knowledge for chronic pain is deterred in many ways. At one end there are institutions that might oppose the introduction of newer knowledge domain on dealing with their patients. While this opens up opportunities for the patient to resolve his pain, it increases competition for trained physicians, as there is a domain merger, between physiology and psychology. Secondly institutions might be reluctant to attempt application of psychological knowledge as a complete treatment alternative. It might at best be considered in parallel with traditional medications for pain and the final issue lies in the context of the patient itself. Many research studies indicate that patient might have a misperception on the causes of their pain. They might consider that being aged is tied up with chronic pain and might not seek more than medical intervention to address the pain management. Also individuals who have used traditional medication that treats their physiological ailments and pain might be reluctant to try a behavior modifications or a cognitive therapy technique. More research is recommended in this context to increase the patient and the medical community awareness of the connection between body and mind when it comes to treating chronic pain.
