Emotional and chronic Pain management
Ongoing pain? Does old pain limit your life or activities? Does it feel like your pain is getting worse in particular situations or when you feel emotional? Well, you’re not alone, 8-10 million in the UK, resulting in 2008 million days off work per year or impacting the quality of life. So, how about tackling it now and reducing or eliminating your pain?
Pain is our alarm system. Physical pain is a feeling that lets your brain know something is wrong with your body. It sends a warning message which can be felt as discomfort, tingling, burning, throbbing, stabbing, soreness, aching, or sometimes agony. Sometimes habits are created by being in pain – moods, inactivity, comfort eating, and panic attacks. But then the messages to your body can get mixed up, pain habits are formed and then we feel the pain increasing, we lose confidence and feel worse. But, we can help the brain to heal the pain and switch off!
Chronic pain – is when the original problem is solved but the neurology has not been turned off, therefore the pain outlives its usefulness. Pain signals continue to be generated in the injured area long after it has healed which results in permanent pain processing changes in the brain and spinal cord giving rise to chronic pain. Imagine the brain is amplifying the pain!
By breaking down the communication and the amplified music, pain can be reduced or eliminated, the brain can relearn the tune.
We can feel physical pain from traumatic events. The pain was created in the brain and is a ‘brain problem.’
Pain can lead to mental stress, weakening the immune system and slowing down the healing process.
You may feel fatigued and may affect our ability to work or socialise and experience depression and mood swings.
Emotional pain can be felt with feelings of loss, guilt, rejection, loneliness and can lead to feelings of anxiety and stress.
