5 Reason Why Anxiety isn't just a Behavioural Issue

Updated: Jun 8, 2023


  1. Anxiety leads to muscle tension causing pain

  2. Injury risk is increased due to changes in posture and muscle tension

  3. If pain or tension in the muscles occurs then exercise must be reduced, this can lead to muscle atrophy and decreased muscle strength

  4. Anxiety limits social interaction reducing the opportunity for enrichment

  5. Anxiety can lead to a reduction in appetite leading to poor nutrition and lack of energy and resources for the animal during exercise
