Why is Pain Management Important?
The human body evolved in such a way that it created a special mechanism—pain—to help keep away from danger. Pain is essential; it is responsible for alerting the body when something has gone wrong.
On the other hand, severe and long-term pain can be extremely stressful for the body. Pain and inflammation are part of the body’s natural defense against disease or injury. However, when pain is ignored or treated improperly, nerve fibers may become more adept at delivering pain signals. With time, the brain (where pain is experienced) becomes more sensitive to these signals and therefore experiences more pain. Additionally, long-term inflammation can actually destroy healthy tissue and negatively affect the workings of the immune system.
Many pain management practices can also be stressful for the body. In particular, unnecessary surgeries and long-term drug use can be extremely harmful.
