When you experience sharp (brief) or chronic (more than 6 months) pain, it can impact many aspects of your life: love life, family life, work life, social life, and sports and recreational activities. Chronic pain can cause fear, anger, discouragement, despair, and a sense of injustice or a feeling of abandonment.
In order to minimize the negative effects of pain, it is important to understand where pain comes from and how you can treat it.
Where does the pain come from?
When we feel pain, the nerve endings of our joints, muscles and skin tissue send signals to the brain. The brain receives these signals and perceives pain.
Undoubtedly, illness and pain often go hand in hand. For example, arthritis encompasses a wide variety of afflictions of which chronic pain is the main symptom. Arthritic pain can affect joints, ligaments, tendons and bones. Muscle pain can be caused by a physical stress to the muscle—from a light contusion to a deep tear, or even fibromyalgia.
How can I prevent or decrease pain?
Oftentimes, and particularly with people suffering from chronic pain, tradition medicine simply does not work. In such cases, an excellent way to treat pain is using a mix between physical activity and alternative medicine.
When patients partake in physical activity, their brains secrete chemical substances that can naturally ease the sensation of pain by stopping its signals that are sent throughout the body. The effects can be extremely impressive. Just a few minutes of walking per day can suffice. With respect to alternative medicine, several solutions are also available, including acupuncture, osteopathy, chiropractic and natural products.
In all cases, reducing the level of stress and identifying the initial causes both play important roles in managing and healing pain.
