Any type of pain therapy can trigger desired effects such as the regaining of ideally pain-free movement function, but also undesired side effects such as a temporary coordination disorder of movement function.
As a warning signal, pain is an important part of our daily lives.
For example, when we accidentally touch a hot stove top, we immediately pull our hand back to avoid further burn damage.
This protective mechanism makes it possible for us to perceive both dysfunctions and illnesses promptly.
Despite this fundamentally positive characteristic, pain is usually perceived as negative and threatening. A functional and sustainable pain therapy must take this into account.
Pain therapy can also be painful, for example, if interventional pain therapy is performed on the spine or acupuncture.
Just as with endogenous pain, people perceive pain but also medically necessary pain therapy differently. Therefore, any pain therapy should be performed with a minimum of pain triggering or amplification to achieve the best possible effect.
In my opinion, exact planning with the selection of the best possible and most suitable procedure as well as precise and fast implementation of the special pain therapy measure(s) are an indispensable prerequisite for this.
In this way, the patient is spared unnecessary and additionally painful experiences that can complicate the further course of therapy.
In addition, side effects typical of the procedure, about which every patient should be informed in advance, can be avoided in this way.
Here, however, I can point out that the risk of being hit by a car while crossing a street and being run over is statistically much greater than triggering one of these side effects. Due to many years of experience, however, I can assure you that the positive effects far outweigh them.
