From Pain and Anxiety to Pleasure
Keywords:definitions of chronic pain, prevalence, neurological processes, anxiety and PTSD, modulating pain, bioenergetic exercise for pain
AbstractTwo definitions of chronic pain are presented and their effects on sufferers are described. One definition is of pain that is persistent even after the original insult is gone. How this type of pain affects the brain is discussed and its relationship to anxiety, post traumatic stress and other psychiatric disorders is explicated. Factors that modulate the experience of pain are presented as well as a specific somatic exercise for relieving pain.
