HYPNOSIS PAIN AID
HYPNOSIS has been identified as an effective drug-free treatment for chronic lower-back pain.
A study, published in journal Pain, found when combined with pain management education classes, the intensity of the pain was reduced with hypnosis.
But the Faculty of Pain Medicine has cautioned patients against rushing out to be hypnotised, saying the jury is still out on the practice for managing chronic pain. Hypnosis can work by helping the brain to “calm the noise of pain”.
