What is Pain?

 

 

What is Pain?

 

It is an unpleasant sensation occurring in varying degrees of severity associated with injury, disease, or emotional disorder.

 

Types of Pain

 

1/ Acute Pain occurs as a result of injury to the body and generally disappears when the physical injury heals. Acute pain is linked to tissue injury. Anxiety is common with acute pain.

 

Examples include:

  • Surgical pain
  • Muscle strains
  • Orthopaedic- type injuries
  • Labour or delivery

 

Symptoms: Patients is able to point to site of pain

  • Sharp
  • Burning
  • Cramping
  • Aching
  • Pressured

 

2/ Chronic (Persistent) Pain lasts beyond the normal healing period usually at least 3 months. The pain may be multifocal and vague. There may be no signs on x-rays or scans to indicate the source of the pain since some pain may be generated by tissue injury. Depression is common with chronic pain.

 

Neuropathic Chronic Pain - is a type of pain that is caused by injury to a nerve. Patients describe the pain as having tingling, numbness, or burning sensation. Neuropathic pain is difficult to treat.

 

Common types of neuropathic chronic pain include:

  • Diabetic neuropathy nerve damage as a result of high blood sugar.
  • Post- herpetic neuralgia pain from shingles after the blisters have healed.
  • Peripheral vascular disease pain in legs, usually during activity, from lack of

blood supply to the extremities. The legs may be discoloured, cold, and the skin

may be shiny.

 

Symptoms:

  • Painful itching
  • Strange sensation
  • Extreme sensitivity to normal touch and temperature
  • Burning
  • Electric like sensation
  • Painful numbness
  • Pins and needles

 

Non-neuropathic Chronic Pain is pain that is not caused by injury to the nerve.

 

The most common types include:

  • Low back pain pain in the lower back from muscles, ligaments, tendons, arthritis or damaged discs.
  • Osteoarthritis- arthritis resulting from wear and tear of the joints and with normal aging.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis an autoimmune disorder resulting in pain, stiffness and inflammation of the joints.

 

Symptoms: Poorly localized pain (patients may not be able to point site of pain)

  • Gnawing
  • Pounding
  • Deep aching

 

 

3/ Unknown There are many chronic pain syndromes that are neither known to be chronic neither non-neuropathic nor neuropathic.

 

These include:

  • Fibromyalgia syndrome diffuse body pain with tenderness in the muscles.
  • Tension headache pressure type headache lasting days to weeks and often not severe.
  • Migraine headache episodic headache that persists for hours to days with nausea and is often severe.
  • Irritable bowel syndrome ( IBS) abdominal pain with cramping, bloating, and constipation often alternating with diarrhoea.
  • Some low back pain back pain that is not muscular, not related to disc injury, and without a know cause.

 

Symptoms:

May be a combination of chronic non-neuropathic and neuropathic symptoms.

 

Treatment:

Specific treatment options need to be tailored to the individual patients.

Always professional therapist should determine the right treatment for you.

RISK FACTORS FOR  SCOLIOSIS

 

1/SEX - mild curves affect boys and girls equally, but girls are 10 times more likely

to have curves that can progress.

 

2/AGE - the younger the child when scoliosis appears, the bigger chance of progression.

 

3/GENETIC FACTORS - it is thought that scoliosis runs in families. 

 

Do you suffer from: 

pins and needles?

spine problems?

Back pain?

Do you exercise spine?

 

Early detection may lead to early treatment,which may stop the curve from getting worse.

 

Children of women who have scoliosis should be screened for scoliosis regularly...
