Psychophysiologic Disorders (PPD) is the clinical term for mindbody symptoms. PPD are physical conditions and pain symptoms in the body that develop in response to stress, trauma and other psychological factors. These mindbody symptoms can affect almost any structure, organ system or region of the body.
Conditions such as chronic pain, migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome, chronic fatigue and pelvic pain syndromes are just a few of the very real chronic conditions that can be diagnosed as PPD. In fact, you may be surprised by just how many different symptoms are actually mindbody disorders.
The good news is that after years of clinical research, there is now evidence that many of these mindbody symptoms (previously thought to be incurable) can be relieved and even cured without surgery, physical therapy or medication. With an evidence-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, sufferers can achieve relief from their chronic pain.
The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit with a mission to end the chronic pain epidemic and opioid crisis by advancing the awareness, diagnosis and treatment of stress-induced medical conditions (PPD) that affect millions worldwide.
