Chronic pain relief with biofeedback
Our bodies normally control aspects of our their workings automatically. For example, our heart rate and muscle function are controlled in this way. Using a technique known as biofeedback, patients can learn how to control them by themselves with the aid of special equipment. This technique is specifically used in pain control.
During a biofeedback session, a patient’s blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and muscle tension are monitored with the help of electrical sensors. The results are “broadcast” to the patient via a screen or headphones. In this way, patients are able to connect their pain to their physical reaction.
For example, if you are suffering from severe headaches after a head injury, you may be able to see on the monitor that this is due to tense muscles. This allows you to consciously decide to relax your muscles, which in turn reduces or even avoids pain. The idea behind the technique is that eventually patients will be able to control their pain by their own responses and do so without the help of a machine.
If your accident happened within the last three years and somebody else was responsible for causing your it, you can claim compensation. Focusing on the future, rather than looking back to the traumatic experience, is another technique that will bring a certain amount of pain relief. A positive way of thinking can work wonders, and if you know there’s somebody like an accident solicitor in Callander fighting your corner, you have something good to look forward to: a sizeable cheque from the negligent party paying compensation for your pain and suffering!
