Often times physical ailments have an emotional basis, and similarly, physical interventions like yoga and exercise can improve our moods, while reducing anxiety and depression.
For other things, environmental factors needed to be assessed. For instance, neck and shoulder pain are often due to office work and sitting too much. Allergies, fatigue, anxiety, and excess weight can also have strong environmental factors that contribute to the condition.
