Our daily chores bring on a lot of pain as we have to work, do our daily household jobs, sit in front of the computer and go around the house and out of it. We have to handle the daily stress and strain of life and this can take a toll on the musculoskeletal system of the body. There are 5 types of pain which are very common – pain in the legs, arms, musculoskeletal, strain and
injuries, arthritis and joint pains, back, headaches and migraines.
We usually try out over-the-counter medications and cold and hot treatments when the pain is somewhat manageable but when the pain becomes chronic and unbearable it spoils the regular working of life. According to a recent research, it was found that chronic pain has no real
cause and it can occur even twelve months after visiting the doctor. Living with chronic pain is difficult but you can always regulate the pain of your body with the power of the mind.
You might have more control of the pain that you can realize through the mind body interventions. The central nervous system and the brain are constantly connected to each other and they are regularly sending and receiving messages of the body. These are messages related to injury and pain and they stop once the body recovers. The pain treatment therapy helps establish a very healthy connection between the nerve paths and the brain.
The techniques related to this therapy are biofeedback, behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy,meditation, hypnosis, and relaxation therapy. The mind body interventions work in case of headaches caused by tension, acute sciatica, fibromyalgia, and several other painful conditions for which there is no specific cause.
Depression, anger, tension and anxiety can cause a loss of connection between the body and the mind. When the brain responds to such feelings and emotions, it develops some negative stimulus.It is important that the therapist finds the reason for such reaction to pains. You have to develop more effective ways to handle the stress every day and then you have more hold over the physiological response to such feelings. This takes some weeks to get regular. Meditation helps to keep the body and the mind cool and this helps to ease the pain and get out of the stress and strain that causes the pain to get enhanced.
