Training the brain could help reduce pain

19 May

So many people have chronic pain and it seems like there’s no solution, or very little help.  Some things work, some times it works, but in between that time you are still plagued with pain. All people want is for their body to be comfortable…at least some of the time!

I’ve discovered this scientific news May 17, 2012 about the most recent findings of why there is chronic pain and what is happening in the brain.  This article really spells that out and also offers much hope.

If you suffer from any sort of pain, take the time to read this brief article from Science News. It offers better understanding into pain.

      I laughed when I saw how you signed this”The Chronic Pain Complaint Society”. I think that would be one of the biggest society in the world!

    One of my coworkers uses biofeedback to assist Veterans with chronic pain. It has been extremely successful in several cases. Pain medication has been reduced and decreased pain, with improvement of quality of life. There are so many other options than traditional medical approaches. Of course, work with your medical providers but also consider expanding treatment to include other approaches.

      I appreciate your comment to help others with pain and agree BIOFEEDBACK can be an option and other options should be searched outside of traditional medicine. There are a number of modalities that help with chronic pain that may help somewhat but not expected to totally eliminate pain; however, if someone finds something that helps more than others or does eliminate the pain it’s worth sharing with others. Some include and many combinations of the following but not limited to: warm water aquatics; reikki; yoga; pilates; acupuncture; meditation; prayer; and deep breathing.
