Pain Management

 

There are different types of pain.

 

Acute pain is of short duration, but it gradually resolves as the injured tissues heal.

 

Chronic or persistent pain is pain that carries on for longer than 12 weeks despite medication or treatment. Most people get back to normal after pain following an injury or operation. But sometimes the pain carries on for longer or comes on without any history of an injury, disease, or operation.

 

How can my approach help?

 

  • We reduce your stress level

 

Pain is a stressor

More stress=More Pain

Less stress=Less pain

 

  • We create more serotonin

 

Serotonin (the happy hormone) - The fastest inhibitor of pain

Brings the pain signal down

Closes the pain gates

 

  • We activate the parasympathetic nervous system (The “chill out” brain) which controls the perception of pain.

 

  • We get into your subconscious mind and change your old beliefs like “I will never get better”
