11 Chronic Pain Control Techniques
To prepare a technique to overcome chronic pain, what needs to be learned is how to focus on using deep breathing to keep the body relaxed. Learning to relax requires practice, especially when you are feeling pain. But surely this is valuable enough to reduce stress on the muscles of the body and distract from the pain itself.
Overcoming chronic pain can start from taking a deep breath, as follows:
- Try to put yourself in a relaxed, sloping state in a dark room, close your eyes and focus on one thing.
-Then slow down your breathing. Take a deep breath, using chest breathing. If your mind feels worried or your mind is disturbed for a matter, then think of a word, like "relax", and think together with your breathing ... syllable "san" while taking a breath and "tai" while exhaling.
-Continue to control the breath for 2-3 minutes
-When you feel your body calmer, you can start the parable technique.
Eleven techniques to control chronic pain and an effective parable are:
1. Changed Focus
This is a favorite technique to show how powerful the mind can alter the sensations in the body. Focus on the attention on any non-painful part of the body (hands, feet, etc.) and alter the sensations in that part of the body. For example, imagine your hands warm. This keeps the mind away from focusing on pain, such as your back pain.
As the name implies, this technique involves mental separation between the painful body parts and the non-painful body, or imagine separate body and mind. For example, imagine your back pain staying in a chair and telling him to stay there, and your mind goes away.
3. Sensory Separation
This technique involves the separation of sensations (pain, burning, kecetit and impaled needles) in a separate section. For example, If the foot or back pain feels the heat, focus on the heat sensation rather than the pain.
This involves trying to imagine an injection of an anesthetic (like Noacaine) on a painful part of the body, like a numbing medicine injected in your lower back. Similarly, you can do it by imagining an ice pack placed in the affected area.
5. Anti Mental Pain
Developed from the mental concept of anesthesia, this technique involves an extremely powerful anti-pain injection, such as morphine in the affected area. Or you can imagine your brain producing a large amount of endorphine hormone, a pain-reducing hormone naturally present in the body and flowing into the painful part of the body.
Use your mind to change sensations, such as heat, cold, anesthesia in painless hands and place the hands on painful areas. Imagine transferring a sense of comfort, from the hand to the painful area.
7. Advance / Backward Age
Use your mind to project yourself and go forward or backward when you are not experiencing the pain. And tell yourself that the painless condition that you are experiencing first is now happening.
8. Symbolic Imagination
Imagine a symbol that represents your chronic pain, such as a sound, glaring noise or glow. Gradually reduce the intensity we agree on as a symbol. As an example
dim light or reduce the volume of noise, which we share with less pain.
9. Positive Imagination
Focus on the fun places you can imagine - beaches, mountains, etc. - where you feel pineapple, safe and relaxed.
Counting in silence is a good way to make peace with pain. You may be able to calculate your breath, calculate the pores above, count lots of ceramics, dhikr, etc.
11. Movement of pain
Move chronic pain from one area to another on your body, where the pain is easier to overcome. For example, mentally move your lower back pain slowly to hand, and from hand to outside air.
Some of these techniques may be better learned alongside a professional, and usually require practice so that it can be effective in relieving chronic pain. It is often recommended to run about 30 minutes and 3 times a week. With practice, you will be able to control your pain.
Sometimes, once you can use this technique, you'll get used to it and it's easy just to get a few deep breaths. And further you will be able to use in activities, work, talk, etc.
