There are three main well-recognized categories of pain:
Nociceptive pain that arises from various kinds of trouble in tissues, reported to the brain by the nervous system. This is the type of pain everyone is most familiar with, everything from bee stings and burns and toe stubs to repetitive strain injury, nausea, tumours, and inflammatory arthritis.
Neuropathic pain arises from damage to the nervous system itself, central or peripheral, either from disease, injury, or pinching. The simplest neuropathies are mechanical insults, like hitting your funny bone or sciatica. Unfortunately, it’s also more likely to lead to chronic pain: nerves don’t heal well.
Other pain …. such as experienced in fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome, nonspecific chronic low-back pain, irritable bowel syndrome and other functional visceral pain disorders.
BioActiv Therapy involves an innovative “Reset” application to the central and peripheral nervous system for pain management in all types of pain.
In acute injury, the application of BioActiv Therapy provides immediate pain relief enabling the practitioner to treat acutely inflamed tissue without any associated pain.
In chronic cases, pain remains even after the inflammation in damaged tissue has subsided. This is because the memory of the original inflammation remains stored in the central nervous system from the time when the original tissue damage was done. The biofeedback loop that remembers the pain within the body is called learning, and includes the tissues affected, the nervous system conducting pathway to the brain and the emotional reaction to the trauma stored in the brain cortex. BioActiv Therapy removes these tissue signals, overcomes the nervous conductive blockages and positively affects the central emotional reaction to the trauma thereby removing the learnt pain.
