The Pain Threshold

Who much hurts the same whack received by two different people? And you, do you feel the same pain today as you felt yesterday for a whack of the same characteristics?

It is possible to measure pain intensity and certify its impact? The Pain, perhaps the oldest and most loyal friend of human being. Are pains that are really unsupportable and drive you crazy? I should give a negative answer to some of those questions: the pain caused for a similar whack in two different people has a very diverse intensity in each one.

You could suffer today much more than yesterday or than a year ago from the same whack. And what for a person could be a maddening sensation for another one could be very painful but not insufferable.

And this is what is known as the pain threshold, or, in other words, the tolerance facing the disgusting and negative pain sensation. Doctors know that there is a threshold but there are not yet equipment and concepts able to certify pain intensity and is determined by a doctor after checking the patient and the appreciations of this one.

There is not infallible certification to know the levels of a painful sensation; the first step for pain treatment is to recognize that every person has a unique threshold. Today, thanks to the analgesics ever y time more specific and precise, it is believed that no one, - not even the sickest person – should has to face the stress of maddening pain.

The pain today is object of several studies and coud be cured, but I don’t want to confuse with this concept, what it is cured is not the pain itself, it is whatever caused it.

It is true that the pain is always accompanied mankind and it is equally accepted that every culture, every civilization, had developed their own methods and treatments to domain pain.

To be honest, to mention pain is to mention a word which has an infinite variety of conditions and circumstances. Scientists have established 3 big categories: Psychologically originated pain, neurologically and peripherally.

The neurological pains are originated in the nervous system, also could response to an amputation, the peripheral pain could be produced by muscle disease or dental illness, arthritis, wounds and even cancer.

About psychological pain we have to consider the threshold, stress, depression, and emotional problems, we may also include in this category: neck and back pain.

And the threshold? The classification does not prevail when it comes to the threshold of pain but it has to do with the subjective appreciation that the doctor has over the patient. Anyway, when we talk about the pain there are involved an infinite range of factors leading to a marked difference between how one person or another experiences a painful sensation.

Among the factors cited by the immunologists and specialists in arthritis include: culture: some cultures endorse pain and give to it a purifier value and even sublime.
