Mind Body Syndrome

The Northwestern Medicine Osher Center for Integrative Medicine has specialists interested in the mind-body connection, or Mind Body Syndrome (MBS).

These integrative medicine specialists have trained with renowned physicians in the field of mind-body pain management and have an understanding of the significant emotional component to such chronic conditions as:

  • Back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Arthritis
  • GERD
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Fibromyalgia

The Center offers a four-week course in the area of MBS for patients who believe that the power of the mind can play a part in helping to heal the symptoms in their bodies.

All patients who are interested in a mind-body evaluation can contact the center for a consultation. During this consultation, the patient's medical history will be explored, with particular attention to episodes of severe pain and any stressful events or emotions that may have accompanied those episodes.
