Chronic pain is defined as having long-term pain that lasts for more than 12 weeks after it is thought that the healing should have occurred from the original trauma, injury, or surgery.
Hypnotherapy has been shown to help as part of an overall pain management regime. When our anxiety or stress levels are high, the adrenaline and cortisol in our system stimulates the nerve fibres which means they send more pain messages. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy helps by reducing the levels of stress, and therefore the amount of cortisol and adrenaline in the system, which then helps to slow or inhibit the pain messages.
