Pain Control & Gout

 

Chronic pain is unpleasant and is often associated with long term conditions such as back & nerve conditions, arthritis, fibromyalgia and migraines. However, certain terminal diseases often exhibit chronic pain e.g. cancer. Acute pain is usually an indication that the pain once diagnosed and treated, will be temporary. Pain can be exacerbated by several factors which can cause the client to feel as if they are unable to manage to control their symptoms. These factors, namely stress, fear, lack of sleep, depression and anxiety alter the severity of the pain being experienced.

 

Before hypnosis can begin it is important to have medical clearance from your GP/ Hospital Consultant to ensure that the therapy does not contra indicate your treatment. Hypnotherapy reduces and relieves pain by deep relaxation. Once relaxed, pain can be treated in several ways. Common practice is to alter the pain level in your mind to a more comfortable level where you can live a more fulfilling life. Stubborn pain can be treated by dissociation methods or by a very powerful visualisation technique.

 

Gout is a common type of arthritis which is characterised by severe pain and swelling in one or more of joints in the body but usually affects the big toe. Gout is caused by a build-up of uric acid in the body and is a waste product produced during the process of metabolism. (when the body breaks down food to use as energy). Usually, uric acid is excreted by the kidneys but some people either do not excrete uric acid properly, or over produce uric acid and have high levels of uric acid in their blood. If the level becomes very high crystals form in the joint causing the joints to become inflamed and extremely painful.
