Chronic pain can significantly affect the lives of those that suffer from it. It affects your productivity, sleep, and enjoyment in life. The causes of it can be from injuries, chronic inflammation, degeneration of joint structures.
Pain can also be caused by benign oxygen deprivation when no physical cause can be determined. In this case, the autonomic–peptide branch of the central nervous system is at play which is a system responsible for the inter-communication between the brain and the body. As such, treating the emotional aspect of health can be important to healing from pain also.
Many types of physical pain are, in fact caused by mild and benign (meaning harmless) oxygen deprivation to a specific area of the body, and brought on by stress through the central nervous system. The Stressors and/or unconscious emotions that trigger oxygen deprivation include; repressed anger, grief, resentment, frustration, confusion etc. The activity of the autonomic-peptide branch of the central nervous system controls involuntary systems such as the circulatory, gastrointestinal and genitourinary systems. It is active 24 hours a day and functions outside of our awareness.
“The altered physiology in this process that creates the symptoms and physical pain appears to be a mild, localized reduction in blood flow to a small region or specific body structure, such as a spinal nerve, resulting in a state of mild oxygen deprivation. The result is pain. The tissues that may be targeted by the brain include the muscles of the neck, shoulders, back or buttons; any spinal or peripheral nerve and any tendon. As a consequence, the symptoms may occur virtually anywhere in the body.” – Dr. John A. Sarno.
