How do we define pain?   

21 september, 2017

Pain is categorized differently based on where in your body you actually feel pain. The strength and category of the pain, and how long it has been on, is also important. Despite how pain is perceived and for how long, pain is in fact generated in our brain. 

Pain could be: 

·         Sharp 

·         Tingling 

·         Grumbling 

·         Aching 

·         Burning 

·         Exhausting 

 

The brain produces pain for protection, also to protect you against further injuries. 

The pain created by the brain does not necessarily correspond with the actual injury on your body. Sometimes you can even feel pain without actually being injured at all. 

 

There are several factors at play when you feel pain, for example: 

·         Physical injury 

·         Mental or physical factors 

·         Environment 

·         Social factors 

·         Sensitivity 

·         Experience and previous history 

 

 

Pain in your lower back is very common, often released by unfavorable working position or postures over time.
