Pain Management Hypnotherapy
Experiencing pain for an extended period of time can have many negative effects on your lifestyle and regular routine, as well as your emotional and mental health.
An injury, and the associated pain, often becomes chronic when the initial trauma is sustained or continues longer than six months. These types of chronic, long lasting injuries are often muscular, and even when the illness or injury has healed, the pain receptors or reaction to pain can last for years in the nervous system and the brain.
This constant feeling of pain can interfere with your physical movement, your general ability to work and your focus on relationships or previously enjoyable activities. It can also disrupt your comfort and patience with people around you because the pain can feel too much to withstand.
Left untreated chronic pain can lead to depression and acute stress, as the exhaustion caused by the symptoms leaves the individual feeling hopeless and miserable.
Chronic pain can take a long time to diagnose as doctors find the severity of pain difficult to measure. A sufferer may be avoiding medical treatment or prescriptions for the pain, or failing to participate in physical therapy which can often aid pain relief. It is important to be as honest and truthful as you can with your doctor when discussing the cause and precise duration of your pain, as it can help them understand and alleviate the symptoms. However, if left untreated, your pain receptors can become more efficient and effective at transmitting pain signals to your brain, triggering a persistent, and usually more extreme, feeling of pain in a specific area,. At this stage you may feel it is too late to recover healthily.
As a doctor cannot predict how long it might take for an injury or illness to fully recover, they cannot necessarily gauge how much your chronic pain is affecting your quality of life. If, after consulting your GP and taking pain-relief medication, you are still struggling to maintain a usual daily routine or your pain often leaves you bedridden, then pain relief hypnotherapy can help you relieve your reoccurring discomfort.
The basic premise for pain relief hypnotherapy is to change the way you perceive and react to pain signals in order to reduce the intensity of what you are feeling. This is achieved by working with the subconscious through hypnosis to make fundamental changes to the way your mind understands and relates to pain. It is important to understand that hypnosis cannot address any physical damage, but rather helps you deal with the manifestations of pain resulting from it.
