The Purpose of Pain & How to Manage it!
Pain initially always has a purpose. Its purpose is to serve as a warning signal that there is something wrong in the body. Once you have discovered what that is, pain is or may no longer be necessary, but it can still be experienced even if it no longer has a purpose!
However, It is important that you find out what is wrong before using any techniques for pain control.
Self-hypnosis is a supplement to medical treatment. However, it is not intended to take the place of medicine. The body of professional literature which has investigated whether hypnosis can reduce pain sensitivity has been overwhelmingly supportive.
In investigations of what types of pain hypnosis is effective and which types are not, most seem to indicate that hypnosis is universally successful in pain management. Hypnosis has been shown effective in management of many varied types of pain, including pain associated with childbirth, angioplasty, phantom limb pain, leukaemia and even headaches and back pain. Pain control through hypnosis can be very useful for the sports person or athlete who has had medical assurance that they can perform/play through the pain without additional injury.
If you are feeling unwell in any way, you should always visit your GP or Medical Adviser in the first instance.
