What is pain?
Feeling pain is an unpleasant – but essential – part of everyone’s life. In fact, we actually NEED to feel pain in our body! It is the body’s “surveillance system” that tells us that we are doing something our body and brain feels could be causing us harm.
Unfortunately there are many times that our bodies have pain and this very surveillance system becomes challenged. In these instances we often experience pain we find hard to control, do not understand, or the pain lasts for longer than we expected. In these circumstances pain can have many negative effects on your life and living with this essential aspect of life, can be difficult.
Despite these challenges, there are many things you can do to improve the way the “surveillance system” works, and Rehab 4U can help you with this.
Understandably, pain has a very bad reputation as a horrible feeling that nobody wants to experience. But pain is NOT as simple as pain = your injury, or a damaged part of your body. Instead it is a very complex phenomena that even has the experts in neurobiology and pain science working hard to understand it!
Where is my pain coming from?
Although it may not feel it, the level of pain you are experiencing right now, is not solely due to a problem in your painful area. It is also most certainly not, just in your head! The pain you are experiencing right now is a very complex “living experience“ that has many factors that are influencing it, and the impact it is having on you.
Where your pain is on your body, how it has come about, past pain experiences, your pain beliefs and your current health and wellbeing, are just a few of the factors that are making your pain what it is.
