Module 1 | Lesson 1:
Understanding your pain
Listen to the audio of this lesson below:
It is known that:
• The amount of pain experienced in the body does not always relate to the amount of tissue damage
• The brain responds based on how much danger it perceives you are in, not on how much you are really in.
• Pain is a distributed phenomenon in the brain – there is no one pain centre, pain pathway.
• Understanding how and why you hurt is therapy – pain literacy (or education) is demonstrated to assist your healing.
