Pain Relief


What is pain and what causes it?

Pain can be very uncomfortable and a difficult sensation. It occurs when a part of our body is damaged. Many people suffer from pain on a daily basis. Pain comes and goes, however for many pain sticks around for some time such as in cancer patients or patients who have had surgery.

There is mostly 3 type of pain as follows:

  • Short term / Acute pain – from an injury such as a broken leg
  • Intermittent pain – from recurrent episodes such as a toothache
  • Long-term / Chronic pain – from persistent back pain or cancer

Pain signals use the spinal cord to reach the brain, where it is processed and linked to the emotional centre of the brain. This means it will determine how we feel and in most cases angry and anxious
