This Is Very Important Regarding Pain Treatment
Physical pain is a signal that something is not right. Depending on the severity pain is usually a signal that alerts us to problems. You need to see your physician or doctor first. Once you doctor has offered their opinions and you have considered your options you may well consider the so called alternative treatments.
Having explored standard medical avenues regarding pain you may consider how using hypnotherapy to manage pain can help you.
Hypnotherapy – Pain And Bio-Neurology
Pain comes to us in a very basic sense in two forms. Fast sharp pain and slow continuous pain. The fast sharp pain is a signal we have injured or damaged our bodies. This is like stubbing a toe, a burn or cutting a finger. An immediate and comparatively short lived sting that alerts to damage.
Afferent nerve fibres of which there are two types relay pain sensations from the periphery of skin, muscles or fibres or the deeper viscera to the brain. This is where you have the experience of pain. Glutamate is the neurotransmitter involved in pain along with a peptide know as Substance P. The presence of Substance P increases the intensity and efficacy of pain transmitters.
Our pain sensing nerves are on a job share. The nerves in your brain and body use the same tracks to convey information ( pain ) back to your brain and to your cerebral cortex so you have a conscious recognition of what the neuro-transmitters signal as pain.
Seemingly intractable pain is often the slow dull pain the can be visceral, from extremities or even both. Symptoms of allodynia and hyperalgesia can compound nociceptive and neuropathic pain. Prolonged pain can trigger long term cellular and neuronal changes which exacerbate pain even more.
A further insult can be the aspects of remembered and anticipated pain. Remembering pain can and will activate the neurology of that pain. Same kind of experience for anticipated pain.
