There are different types of pain. Acute pain starts suddenly and can last for only a short time, or for days, disappearing once the underlying cause is treated. Acute pain occurs generally as a result of illness, trauma, surgery or painful medical procedure. The presence of pain is beneficial to the patient, it acts as an alarm signal. To ignore this might lead to any number of complications, or even death.
Chronic pain on the other hand, starts as an acute pain, but then it continues for an extended period, beyond what would have been the anticipated healing time.
Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can be used to manage pain. Hypnosis helps to change the way you perceive the pain messages and as a result it can help to reduce its intensity.
