About Pain Relief

  • About Pain Relief

  • What causes Pain?

  • How can Pain be managed?

Pain is an experience everyone will have from time to time in their life. Pain has different levels and can range from a mild knock that hurts for a few moments to excruciating pain you feel when you seriously injure yourself. No matter what the severity you should always identify the cause of the pain and get the relevant treatment to heal this.

Depending on the cause of pain, you will both experience different ranges of pain and for different lengths of time. Pain can also have a knock on effect on your day to day life, for example, sleep can be affected by pain, leaving the individual weak and tired, which in turn can lead to other conditions such as a migraine.

Pain is caused by messages running through an individuals' nervous system in their body whenever there is damage, inflammation or irritation in the body, these pain sensors send electric signals directly to the brain which is translated as pain.

Individuals experience different levels of pain depending on the situation as the brain sends the necessary amount of ""pain strength"" based on the severity of the problem, and where its located.

Once the source of pain has been treated, these signals stop getting sent to the brain and you no longer feel the pain sensation on that area. However there is occasion where individuals continue you to feel pain after treated, this is known as chronic pain.

Chronic pain usually effects those with underlying medical conditions such as arthritis

Can also occur because the individual has damage to the nerve system

Whether your pain is long-term or has just started, the NHS recommends trying the following ten self-help steps. Get some gentle exercise to ease pain as it blocks pain signals to the brain, concentrate on your breathing, read books and leaflets on pain, get counselling to deal with emotions related to pain, distract yourself with another activity, share your story about pain, try to improve your sleep routine, take a self management course, keep in touch with friends and family and relax to beat pain, practicing relaxation techniques can help to reduce persistent pain.
