  • PAIN DESCRIPTION

    Pain is a message sent by the body to the brain, signaling that disease, injury, or strenuous activity has caused trouble in some area. Without pain, you would remain unaware of many problems - from torn ligaments to appendicitis - until the disorders became serious. At low levels, pain can motivate you to rest the injured area so that tissues can be repaired and additional damage can be prevented. When severe, pain can motivate you to seek treatment as well.

    Not all pain, though, appears to serve a useful function. While acute pain, the pain described above, can alert us to a problem that needs immediate attention, in some cases pain lasts long after an injured area has healed. In other instances, pain may be caused by recurring backache, migraines and other headaches, arthritis, and other disorders. Referred to as chronic pain - which is defined as pain that occurs, continually or intermittently, for more than six months - this pain may signal an ongoing problem that cannot be eliminated through treatment. In such a case, pain management often becomes the treatment goal.

    For some people, pain is cyclical - pain produces anxiety and this anxiety intensifies the pain. Fear and anticipation of the physical problem can also heighten the pain, leading to feelings of depression and helplessness. When experiencing such pain, it is natural to limit one's activities. This can lead to a "chronic pain cycle", which can adversely affect one's confidence and self-esteem.

    Being aware of the chronic pain cycle as well as understanding its psychological effects can help you avoid being drawn to it:
      1. The cycle generally begins with prolonged periods of rest and inactivity, causing a loss in physical strength, endurance, and flexibility. As a result, you may begin to lose confidence in your ability to do things, causing a lowering of personal goals.

      2. Inability to perform usual activities at home or work is likely to promote feelings of frustration, and you may begin perceiving yourself as unproductive. This sense of lowered self-esteem may further lead to depression.

      3. During times when the pain subsides or is more tolerable than usual, you may overexert yourself in an effort to prove to yourself and others that you can still do the things you did before the chronic pain began.

      4. As a result of the overexertion, the pain often returns and may be more severe than before. You may find yourself unable to finish tasks or accomplish goals. Discouraged and in pain, you begin limiting your activities, and the cycle begins again.

    Once way to keep from getting caught up in the chronic pain cycle is through pain management. Often, the reduction of physical pain can prevent the cycle from starting.

    There are a variety of treatments that can help alleviate pain. Some do so on a purely physical level, perhaps by interrupting the pain process or desensitizing nerve endings. Others approach pain control on a psychological level, by affecting the mind's perception of the pain. In the treatment of pain, however, there often is no clear-cut separation of the physical and the psychological. Just as a physical reduction of pain may decrease anxiety and improve outlook, so can the mind be used to relax muscles and effect other physical changes that then reduce symptoms.

    The following information is meant to introduce you to some of the many pain-control techniques now available. Depending on the cause of your pain, the level of your pain, and your own treatment preferences, you may want to try one or more of these techniques. While some of these approaches, like the use of hot and cold packs, can easily be used on your own; other techniques, like biofeedback, require at least initial training by a qualified practitioner, and some, like chiropractic, must be performed by a professional. When possible, get referrals from your health care provider, midwife, or from your friends. If a reputable pain clinic is available to you, this can be a wonderful resource - one that offers a range of practitioners experienced in using a variety of pain-control techniques. Make sure that the professional you consult has successfully treated a condition such as yours. Try to obtain the names of others who have used this practitioner and speak to them about their therapies.

    PAIN CONTROL THERAPY TECHNIQUES

    ACUPRESSURE

    Based on the same beliefs that are the foundation of acupuncture, acupressure (also known as "contact healing") is actually the older of the two methods. Acupressure and the healing art of shiatsu (a massage technique) are commonly referred to as "acupuncture without needles". Like acupuncture, acupressure seeks to restore health by restoring the normal flow of chi, the life energy that flows through the body along pathways called meridians. While acupuncture uses the insertion of needles to promote energy flow, acupressure uses finger and hand pressure. During pressure stimulation, neurotransmitters, which help to inhibit the reception and transmission of pain, are released.

    Acupressure is a safe, simple, and inexpensive treatment. Although it may be performed by a skilled practitioner, because of the treatment's non-invasive nature, acupressure may also be performed by the individual for the immediate relief of pain. In fact, a number of self-acupressure techniques, including Acu-Yoga, Do-In, and Tui-Na, can help you control pain through finger pressure, massage, body positioning, and a variety of other means.

    ACUPUNCTURE

    This ancient Chinese practice is based on the belief that the health is determined by chi, the vital life energy that flows through every living thing. This energy is thought to move through the body along pathways called meridians, each of which is linked to a specific organ. If the flow of energy is balanced, the individual enjoys good health. If something interrupts this flow, however, various problems, including pain, can result. Acupuncture is used to restore proper energy flow, and, as a result, good health.

    In acupuncture treatment, the acupuncturist inserts thin needles at specific points in the body. Although slight discomfort may occasionally be felt upon insertion of the needle, the treatment is virtually painless. The needles may be left in place for anywhere from a few minutes to a half hour. To support the acupuncture therapy, the practitioner may recommend taking herbs in the form of teas and capsules, and may also suggest specific lifestyle changes and exercises. Relief may be experienced after only one treatment or after a series of treatments.

    Although used for a variety of health problems, including addictions and mental disorders, in the United states, acupuncture is perhaps most commonly used to relieve pain, including backache and migraine headaches. Studies have indicated that acupuncture may stimulate the production of endorphins, the body's own painkillers. Completely safe, acupuncture has no known side effects.

    AURICULAR THERAPY (AURICULOTHERAPY)

    Auricular therapy (or Auriculotherapy) involves stimulating the external surface of the ear, or auricle, to alleviate pathological conditions in other parts of the body. Various techniques are used, including electrical stimulation and the use of acupuncture needles.

    The use of the auricle in diagnosis was first described in the early 1950's by the French neurologist, Dr. Paul Nogier. Nogier first published his comprehensive systems of diagnosis and treatment in 1957, after years of observation demonstrated to him that points on the ears that had reduced electrical resistance corresponded to specific areas of the body. Since 1982, the World Health Organization (WHO) has been sponsoring working groups in an attempt to establish international consensus on the terminology and the auricular location points. WHO used research conducted by Terry Oleson, Ph.D., and Richard Kroening, M.D., at UCLA Pain Management Center, along with a Chinese ear acupuncture text by Helen Huang, as a guide to standardization.

    There are two main schools of though regarding the auricular points, one European and the other Oriental. while there is no complete agreement on auricular points between the two schools, 43 points were adopted by WHO in 1987. The use of auricular therapy for pain management and in the treatment of addiction is in widespread use in Europe and has been increasing steadily in the United States since the early 1970s. Its main use has been to enhance treatment of addiction, particularly nicotine addiction. Auriculotherapy seeks to restore a sense of well being, reduce anxiety, and promote detoxification.

    According to theory, there are meridians that run through the body. Along these meridians are pressure points - the same points used in acupressure. There are literally hundreds of these points located in the lobe of the ear. It has long been believed in Asia that when the meridians become unbalanced, illness results. Using a tiny battery-operated machine, a small charge of direct current can be applied, eliminating the need for acupuncture needles. Very brief stimulation - 10 seconds at about 100 microamperes or less - on auricular points, can often produce profound and immediate results. The key is to treat at the exact point on the front of the ear and the one directly behind it on the back associated with the regional area of pathology. These areas are called corresponding points. They are highly conductive and sensitive to pressure, sometimes long after the health problem is considered healed. This form of therapy has led to dramatic improvements in long-standing problems that were unresponsive to conventional medical therapy.

    BIOFEEDBACK

    Biofeedback combines a variety of relaxation methods such as guided imagery and meditation with the use of instruments that monitor the individual's responses. Over time, this teaches you to consciously regulate a number of your own autonomic functions - heart rate, blood pressure, and other processes previously believed to be involuntary. By consciously regulating these functions, you can control a number of problems, including pain.

    During a biofeedback session, electrode connected to a monitoring unit are taped or otherwise painlessly attached to the skin. The machine may measure may one of a number of things, including skin temperature, pulse blood pressure, muscle tension, and brain wave activity. As you use various techniques, such as relaxation, to create the desired response, lower blood pressure, for instance, the machine, through sound or images, provides moment-by-moment feedback on your progress. Eventually, with the practitioners help, you should become able to create the desired response without the use of the machine.

    Although biofeedback has been successfully used to help a wide range of health problems, it is perhaps best known for its use in the treatment of headaches and migraines. In a large number of cases, biofeedback has been successfully used to avert the onset of migraines. it has also been used to treat injuries, as well as to relieve the pain of TMJ syndrome.

    It should be noted that biofeedback only measures stress; it does not cure it. Sessions should be conducted in conjunction with other therapies under the watchful eye of a qualified health care provider.

    BREATHING EXERCISES

    Shallow or poor breathing can contribute to many disorders. We need to learn to breathe deeply, and from the abdomen rather than from the chest, which produces short and shallow breathing. Learning this technique helps one to breathe in more oxygen, which then passes through the lungs and is absorbed into the bloodstream and into our bodies. Oxygen is needed for cellular respiration, cell metabolism, and proper brain function. If you breathe too shallowly, the body cannot eliminate sufficient carbon dioxide for good health. Proper breathing technique increases lung capacity, increases energy levels, speeds the healing process of many disorders, and helps to relieve anxiety, asthma symptoms, insomnia and stress.

    To practice deep breathing, do the following:

    1. Slowly breathe in through your nose and from your abdomen as deeply as you can and hold the breath to the count of 10.

    2. Place your tongue between your front teeth and the roof of your mouth. Slowly breathe out through your mouth.

    Do this for 5 minutes 3 times daily. Choose an environment with fresh air when doing this exercise, not a place with a lot of traffic or pollution.

    If you want to relax quickly (if you are under stress or have tension or an anxiety attack) place your arms down along the sides of your body. As you are inhaling deeply, stretch your arms up and out as if to form a V-Shape. Then exhale slowly through your mouth and bring your arms back down to your side. This is a stretching and breathing exercise at the same time. Repeat this as many times as is comfortable every hour until you find relief.

    CHIROPRACTIC

    Chiropractic is a form of treatment that seeks to eliminate pain - and, in some cases, other problems - through the manipulation of the spinal column. Chiropractors believe that if the spinal vertebrae are properly aligned, impulses from the brain are able to travel freely along the spinal cord to the various organs, maintaining healthy function throughout the body. If a misalignment of the spine occurs, however, the normal flow of impulses is disrupted, resulting in pain as well as other physical disorders. Chiropractors seek to return the spine's alignment to its normal, healthy function, allowing the body to heal itself and eliminate the pain.

    GUIDED IMAGERY

    Guided imagery is a technique that uses a mind-body connection to help people cope with a variety of disorders, including pain. Guided imagery is the mind thinking in pictures and is an effective tool for eliminating negative thoughts and replacing them with positive ones. It has been used successfully in treating rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and other illnesses and has been shown to reduce stress, slow the heart rate and stimulate the immune system. It can be an effective form of self-care.

    HEAT & COLD THERAPY

    Hot and cold packs are simple-to-use pain-control tools that have been widely used for many years. When applied singly or in combination, these techniques often provide relief not only from pain itself but in some cases any accompanying swelling and inflammation.

    HERBAL PAIN RELIEVERS

    Many herbs have been used for centuries for their pain-relieving properties. Some are take orally in tablet, capsule or tea form and others are used topically to relieve pain as lotions, creams, ointments, compresses, rubs, liniments oils, and poultices.

    HYPNOTHERAPY

    Like meditation and visualization, hypnotherapy is a method by which a qualified health care provider or therapist can induce a positive mental stated in an individual. Hypnotherapy is often used as a method to alleviate anxiety, control habits such as smoking, and to reduce pain. It has been used to successfully control back pain, joint pain, burn pain, and the pain of migraines and other headaches. It can be a valuable self-help tool, as you can learn to do self-hypnosis whenever you need it.

    MAGNET THERAPY

    Magnet therapy has been used in the Far East and Europe for some time and is becoming popular in the United states. It is said that magnets can be used to provide relief from pain and to hasten healing, Double-blind studies on the effectiveness of magnet therapy have shown that there is no scientific basis to conclude that small magnets of the type sold for the purpose can relieve pain or influence the course of disease. Many of today's products actually produce no significant magnetic field at the skin's surface, and none beneath. The initial study that is cited by magnet marketers is the pilot study done at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, where researchers found that magnets could provide significant relief for pain of post-polio syndrome. However, other subsequent studies, such as one done at the New York College of Podiatric Medicine, reported no effect on patients suffering from heel pain. Researchers at the Veteran's Administration Medical Center in Prescott, Arizona, conducted an elaborate study on back pain and found no evidence to support the claims of the magnet manufacturers.

    Magnets are believed to work by increasing circulation and blood flow to affected areas, which in turn reduces swelling and inflammation. Arthritis, asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, fibromyalgia, infections, migraines, osteoporosis, ruptured disks, sports injuries, and tennis elbow are a few of the conditions that are said to be helped by magnet therapy. So far, studies, have shown that blood circulation is not affected by magnets.

    Despite the decidedly mixed results of scientific research, the decision to try magnet therapy is one that each individual must make for him- or herself. If you are using magnets for pain relief and they seem to be working, by all means do not discontinue their use. However, if you do choose to use magnets, understand that they should not be used during pregnancy or in the presence of pacemakers, insulin pumps, and automatic defibrillators. People who take anticoagulants or use drug patches also should not use magnets. And on a particular not, keep your magnets away from your computer's hard drive and storage disks. Magnets should not be near magnetic strips found on ID cards or credit cards and they should not be near VCR tapes or any other item that uses a magnetic tape.

    MASSAGE THERAPY

    Massage involves the manipulation of muscles and other soft tissues. It is a beneficial means used in the treatment of a wide range of conditions, including muscle spasms and pain, soreness from injury and headaches. Massage works to relieve pain by increasing lymphatic circulation and thereby reducing inflammation; by breaking up scar tissue and adhesions; by promoting blood flow through muscles; and by promoting drainage of the sinus fluids. Massage is not advisable for everyone. Those with a history of phlebitis, high blood pressure, or any other vascular disorder should not receive any type of deep muscle massage performed with strong pressure. Always check with a health care provider before receiving any type of deep muscle massage. Massage should not be performed on inflamed areas or on individuals with malignant or infectious conditions. There are a variety of massage methods available and currently in use. Each is based on a different theory and utilizes specific techniques.

    MEDITATION

    Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years and is an effective means of treating stress and managing pain. Broadly defined, meditation is an activity that calms the mind and keeps it focused on the present. In the meditative state, the mind is not cluttered with thoughts or memories of the past, nor is it concerned with future events. There are hundreds of meditation techniques, most of which fall into one of two categories: concentrative and mindfulness. Meditation is an effective self-care technique that can be a useful part of your health care program.

    QI GONG

    Qi Gong (pronounced chie-gong) is a slow-motion exercises that is older than Tai Chi. Both concentrate on movement and breath meditation. Qi means "life force, energy" and gong means "work, a skill of practice". Qi Gong increases vital energy for emotional and physical health.

    According to traditional Chinese medicine, this type of exercise wards off illness. It has been linked to reduced blood pressure and increased levels of endorphins, natural body chemicals that relieve pain and maintain mental health. Work with a trained professional to begin with, and in a half-hour you will be able to practice Qi Gong on your own. You will not find the exercises too strenuous. They are done as if in slow motion.

    This particular discipline not only improves your mind, but also tones the muscles and joints and improves you balance. Remember to move your body slowly, with concentration, and remove all other thoughts from your mind. Proper breathing also is a part of Qi Gong. You want to enable your physical and mental processes to operate in balance for healing, relaxation, and internal energy.

    RELAXATION TECHNIQUES

    Once pain occurs, your psychological reaction to it can have a profound effect on th duration and intensity of the pain. In some people, pain is cyclical; pain produces anxiety and tension, and intensifies pain. In the case of disorders such as migraines, tension can be a significant cause of the initial pain. By releasing tension, relaxation techniques can greatly reduce certain types of pain and actually prevent some pain from occurring. There are a variety of relaxation techniques available.

    TAI CHI

    Tai Chi, known as "meditation in motion", is similar to Qi Gong. It is used for meditation and complete relaxation. Both techniques are characterized by slow, soft, flowing movements that emphasize energy forces. These arts are very unlike the "strong" martial arts, such as Karate and Kung Fu (Wushu). Tai Chi releases the flow of energy throughout the body. When this energy becomes blocked, one becomes ill.
