Chronic pain patients often present with a co-morbid psychiatric abnormality, of which the anxiety disorders and depression are the most common. Concomittant treatment of the psychiatric disorder not only improves emotional health, but can also improve pain scores, functional improvement, and overall sense of well-being. Treatment with anti-depressants and with psychiatric therapy is the mainstay of treatment.
