9 Things You Should Know About Pain

7. The brain can be fooled into feeling pain in prosthetic limbs. This sensation comes from the brain’s perception of what the body is as a whole, meaning that after amputation, patients sometimes feel pain from a prosthetic or “phantom” limb.

8. A person’s capacity to differentiate right from left can change when you experience pain. Severe pain can affect the networks in the brain that determine left and right. Sense of direction can be affected when you experience pain because the map the brain creates between the tissue and itself becomes smudged.

9. It is impossible to know if you have a high pain threshold or not. Although people can claim to have a high pain barrier, there is no scientific method to prove this. There is equipment to measure how much force a person can resist before feeling pain, you can’t determine what the pain feels like.

    Everybody should have correct knowledge about the pains, just like these 9 things. But simply knowing about the pain won’t be enough, correct knowledge about the cures is also imperative. I could give a start to that knowledge; chiropractic therapy can heal many types of body pains. You only need to consult one of its experts that are named as chiropractors.
