Some new thoughts are emerging on pain control that is good news for people who are suffering. Traditionally, pain has been controlled by blocking the pain related pathways in the nervous system with drugs or by attempting to physically disrupt those pathways through what is known as ablation. As our understanding of the nervous system increases, a new concept of pain management is emerging. See the human body has circuits that carry pain signals to the brain and also its own circuits that block pain signals from ever reaching the brain. The traditional way of relieving pain is to block the first pathway.  More recently research has focused on stimulating the internal pain blocking circuits.  This approach is called stimulation induced analgesia. It means rather than trying to block or destroy the pain pathways, treatment seeks to stimulate the internal pain blocking pathways. The body has its own morphine, serotonin GABA and all the other chemicals it needs to block pain. In fact, many researchers call the nervous system the greatest drugstore in the world.  So the question becomes, how do we access and activate these available pain suppressing pathways?  There are stimulation techniques known as Direct Current Brain stimulation, Transcutaneous Vagal Nerve stimulation,Galvanic Vestibular stimulation and Cranial Nerve Neuromodulation techniques that research has shown can activate the body’s own pain relieving pathways. Often, these gentle procedures will activate the right pain suppressing pathway at just the right time, producing amazing and long lasting pain relief for patients.                                    .     .     .
