We often take for granted feeling physically well and fit, so when we experience pain over prolonged periods of time it can have multiple effects on our everyday lives.
CHRONIC OR ACUTE PAIN?
A sudden onset of pain is known as acute pain, generally acute pain tends to disappear when the underlying cause has healed, though there are cases in which it is more severe and lasts for weeks and months.
Chronic pain is pain that lasts for longer than six months. Here the nerve fibers which transmit pain signals to the brain become more efficient and affective at sending the messages to the brain. This means that the intensity will increase, this is necessary to get your attention and as a result your brain becomes more sensitive to pain.
Hypnotherapy can be used to manage, Joint Pain, Neck Pain, Spinal Stenosis and a variety of other injuries and illnesses.
