Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.

According to duration and cause, pain can be divided into:

  • acute pain
  • chronic pain (pain lasting more than 3 to 6 months).
  • physiological (nociceptive) pain
  • neuropathic pain
    • peripheral (e.g., in diabetic melitus, phantom pain after amputation)
    • central (e.g., in multiple sclerosis, stroke)
  • Psychosomatic pain.

Therapeutic approaches:

It has proven to be extremely successful to treat pain both physically and mentally.

On the one hand, a healing process can be initiated by eliminating the physical cause and strengthening one’s own ability to regenerate,

On the other hand, an improvement of the behavior can be achieved by changing thought patterns and the emotional state.

whereby self-healing, the own resilience and thus also the own capability to action is increased.

In addition to manual therapeutic methods such as

  • Acupressure,
  • Fascial manipulation according to Stecco (FM),
  • Tuina,
  • Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST)
  • Resistant stretching

I also use

  • RECBT – Rational Emotive & Cognitive Behavior Therapy after Albert Ellis
  • Respiratory therapy

It can also be worthwhile to intervene with medication, but since this only represents a symptomatic approach and does not solve any causes, the other methods are preferable. Nevertheless, a pain medication can be considered individually.
