A negative pain mindset — catastrophizing — undermines pain treatment effectiveness and facilitates structural brain changes that serve to maintain pain and distress.

In short, catastrophizing makes pain more painful, last longer, and much harder to treat. Researchers are focusing on treating catastrophizing efficiently and early on to prevent persistence of pain.
