What do you do when you are in pain? When asked about passers-by in a street gathering, most of them would answer, "just be patient!" Pain, as the earliest and most subjective internal feeling in our life, is a problem we often encounter. However, most people think that pain is just a symptom of the disease, as long as the disease is cured, the pain will disappear, so there are still many patients suffering from pain.
Correct understanding of pain! Don't be silly and bear the pain again!
Current situation: Chinese people are the "disaster area" of pain
According to the global pain index (GPI) report in 2017, China is the "disaster area" of physical pain. More than 90% of the respondents have experienced physical pain, but only 28% will take timely action, and even 20% of Chinese choose to "let time treat pain".
For the high incidence of computer neck, shoulder bag, sofa waist and other symptoms, most of the "victims" do not pay attention to physical pain, do not understand and do nothing.
In addition, although some people want to cure pain, they habitually choose massage, plaster, acupuncture and other slow onset methods.
Misunderstandings: the "eight misunderstandings" of pain
Misunderstanding 1: forbearance
The longer the time of pain, the lower the resistance of human body to pain! It is the wrong way for many people to deal with pain. The pain is intolerable, the more intolerable the more intolerable.
Mistake 2: make a prescription by yourself
It's dangerous to buy your own painkillers. All the painkillers have their own anti pain spectrum, and taking them randomly may delay the condition! Over the counter drugs are recommended to consult a pharmacist or pain doctor before use.
Myth 3: fear of addiction
Opioids, which are mainly used for analgesic treatment, are less likely to be addicted in conventional doses!
Misunderstanding 4: pain stops with the disease
Pain itself is a disease and will not end with the recovery of the primary disease. Chronic pain needs to be alleviated and treated.
Myth 5: women are more pain tolerant
There was no significant difference in the degree of pain tolerance between men and women. Pain perception is controlled by genes. There is no significant difference in pain tolerance between gender and race.
Myth 6: no dysmenorrhea after marriage
Dysmenorrhea has little to do with marriage and having children. Dysmenorrhea is different from person to person, there are many patients with menopause or severe pain.
Myth 7: massage for pain relief
Non strain of low back and leg pain massage may cause injury! If the pain is muscle strain, chronic strain, to the hospital for regular massage is effective, but first to the hospital for examination, to distinguish the type of disease.
Myth 8: only "medicine" is from
The fact that painkillers don't work doesn't mean there's no other way. At present, in the aspect of pain treatment, minimally invasive intervention and other means are relatively mature, which can meet the needs of more than 95% of all kinds of pain patients at all levels.
This is how to treat the four major pains
Neck, shoulder, low back and leg pain: a comprehensive conservative treatment of human aging.
Neck, shoulder, low back and leg pain is an aging manifestation of the human body's motor system, which often occurs repeatedly. In the Department of pain, comprehensive treatment other than medication can be carried out, and minimally invasive interventional surgery can relieve pain symptoms in about 80% of patients.
Postherpetic neuralgia: neuromodulation of cancer
Postherpetic neuralgia needs comprehensive treatment in the early stage. If the treatment effect is not good, nerve modulation technology can be used for treatment. The earlier the treatment, the more accurate the effect.
Trigeminal neuralgia: clear the cause first and treat it at the least cost
Trigeminal neuralgia is a kind of paroxysmal severe neuralgia which occurs repeatedly in the facial trigeminal nerve distribution area, mostly in the middle-aged and elderly people.
Patients can take nutrition and control of neuralgia drugs, or minimally invasive interventional therapy, to achieve the purpose of effective analgesia.
Phantom limb pain: cerebrospinal problems and spinal cord electrical stimulation
Phantom limb pain is one of the most difficult pain diseases, and the conventional pain relief methods are often ineffective. Patients can try spinal cord electrical stimulation (SCS), through bioelectrical stimulation, to achieve the purpose of analgesia.
