Changing the way you picture pain can help
Most people who suffer from serious pain have one or more mental images that they associate with the discomfort and what it represents to them.
A new study discussed on our Research Digest has shown that these pain-sufferers can be taught to re-imagine this pain imagery in a more positive light, bringing them instant relief and emotional comfort.
