The latest pain definitions from Prof Lorimer Moseley

Getting a grip on pain and the brain – Professor Lorimer Moseley – Successful Ageing Seminar 2013

Always great to hear the latest definitions and discoveries regarding pain from THE pain Professor, Lorimer Moseley.

It still stumps me however, to hear how ‘intelligent’ the brain is but yet how stupid its ‘brilliance’ is of learning pain tunes. In fact I’m not sure I’m stumped, I’d rather call it disbelief that all this horrific pain I’ve endured the past 6.5 years can be a tune… a learned behaviour. I certainly don’t dismiss the research and of course we’ll all be examples of different definitions of pain but in my tail’s tip, I believe my undiagnosed and unrecognised injury to my pudendal nerve injury, and the lack of treatment, has created a great wound that if not scarred will need its time to heal.

Yes, I pace up my activity (or is it better put that I juggle it well), but now that I am having appropriate treatment, I’m going to hold the thought that I may be nursing my wound towards healing. I am happy however, to let anyone who swears by ‘pain tunes’ to believe that I’m also slowly changing my brain’s pain signal and that the process is more about plasticity.

Whatever floats your boat I say, so long as it leads to cure.
