Let us look at this in a positive light. Both are a sign from the body that something is wrong and the body needs attention. One is a physical symptom and the other is an emotional or psychological symptom.
Each can cause the other, low back pain can cause depression and depression can cause low back pain. Dr. John Sarno's message is that the mind and the body are intimately connected. Stress-induced anxiety or psychosomatic symptoms will cause depression and Chronic Pain/TMS (Tension Myoneural Syndrome).
Dr. John Sarno has proven over and over the relationship between chronic pain anxiety and depression.
