New ways to address and overcome chronic pain
Recent studies have shown us that:
- Pain killers are not helpful for chronic pain problems so a different strategy is needed.
- Movement is necessary to overcome chronic pain, if you are scared of moving because of pain.
- Practical safe strategies can be a great catalyst for changing the pain response.
- Stress can play a big role in the pain response; whether pain is causing stress, or if you have external stressors for example in work, relationships or home life, these can all play a significant role by affecting our biology – stress hormones cortisol and adrenalin are far reaching and have been shown to impact pain.
