What is anxiety?



Anxiety is a generalised mood disorder that results in feelings of apprehension, fear or worry. Anxiety can be characterised into different types which include:

Panic disorder - recurrent panic attacks over a period of one month. Pain attacks are intense periods of fear associated with palpitations, dizziness, shortness of breath, and chest pain.

Generalised anxiety disorder - excessive and unrealistic worry over a period of at least six months, which is associated with difficulty concentrating, irritability, muscle tension and sleep problems.

Phobic disorders - intense, irrational fear of certain objects (such as snakes, spiders, or blood) or situations (such as heights, speaking in front of a group, or public places), which may lead to a panic attack.

Anxiety is often caused by stress such as a difficult situation at home, work or school which can affect a person's physical health. Anxiety can cause muscles to tighten which then leads to pain and stiffness.

Physiotherapy treatment plays an important role in the management of anxiety and is effective at reducing tension in your muscles and improving sleep, mood and self-esteem.
