Pains & Strains- Part 2

Being goal-focused in weight control and exercise is important to your success. An injury can cause you physical pain but also mental anguish. The pain impulse of an injury travels through the network of nerves to the spinal cord and to the brain. Pain signals share the same pathway. Stress and emotional anxiety lower your threshold for pain. You’re quicker to lose your patience and feel pain more quickly. Robert Gatchel, PhD, professor of psychology at the University of Texas explains how stress can cause the mind to put a worst-case scenario on physical pain. Studies find that ‘catastrophizing’ pain (imagining the worst can exacerbate the feeling of any pain) [Fitness Magazine, June 2011].
It’s really about attitude. If you imagine the worst, you’ll feel worse. A Thai massage therapist recently explained to me the ancient belief that if you mentally ‘move the pain through the channel’ it will dissipate. Use your mental focus to help your body heal the pain. Image the cells repairing, swelling going down, pain reducing, and visualize yourself doing the activities and exercises that bring you stress release, and better health.
