If you’ve been suffering from back, neck or shoulder pain lately, much of it could be a direct result of the financial crisis gripping the world, says pain specialist Norman Marcus, M.D., who offers suggestions to help you deal with that pain. They include talking, walking, laughing and sex.

Dr. Marcus is Clinical Associate Professor in Anesthesiology and Psychiatry and Director of Muscle Pain Research at the N.Y.U. School of Medicine and a past president of the American Academy of Pain Medicine
