Basic yoga exercises. Somatoform disorder is a mental illness in which no physical cause can be found for the patient’s pain, but the patient experiences the pain as very real. Anxiety often occurs with somatoform disorder and the OT can address the anxiety by introducing basic yoga exercises. If the woman’s pain is caused by muscular bracing due to stress, yoga may also help the upper body pain.
