Effective Pain Management: 4 Tips To End The Suffering

Tim was in pain for as long as he could remember.  His back began hurting years ago and never went away.  He had seen multiple doctors who only prescribed him narcotic pain medications, which didn’t really work, or they suggested surgery, which rarely works.  When he came into my office, I tried a different method for getting rid of his pain: I gave him a book.

The book Healing Back Pain, by John Sarno, MD, explains Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) and how to get rid of it. Tim has now been pain-free for several years!

Why Do You Have Pain?

Most physicians treat pain without trying to find out the root cause.  There is always a reason.  I will repeat that…There is always a reason for pain!  We may not be able to always find the reason for your pain, but most of the time, it is possible.

There are four primary reasons for pain:

  1. Inflammation
  2. Poor circulation
  3. Muscle spasm
  4. Nerve pain

Each of these primary pain triggers has a different set of reasons for causing pain and, therefore, different ways of treating it effectively.

Pain From Inflammation

The repair mechanism of the body contains hormones that act as “inflammatory mediators,” which switch on the four signs of inflammation:

  • Redness
  • Heat
  • Swelling
  • Pain

If there is some injury to the body, these reactions are essential for fighting infection, preventing excessive blood loss and repairing any damage.  However, when there is no injury and these mediators are activated, they can actually do a great deal of harm.  These are all the “-itis” diseases:

  • Arthritis
  • Tendonitis
  • Myositis
  • Bursitis
  • Arteritis
  • Pneumonitis
  • Others
