Women in Pain
Common examples of painful problems include:
- pelvic pain including endometriosis, bladder problems, muscular spasm, period pain
- back pain
- joint pains
- abdominal pain (e.g. irritable bowel syndrome, intolerances)
- migraine and headache
- jaw pain
It is not uncommon for there to be several painful areas that are seemingly unrelated. However, with the advancing understanding of pain, we know that there is a common biological thread that ties these problems together. These adaptations, some within the nervous system, both amplify pain and reduce our natural ability to dampen the sensitivity.
The body areas that hurt can seemingly expand and involve a range of body systems, hence why the pain can manifest in different regions and organs. The pain is an expression of this underlying sensitivity that needs to be targeted, as well as addressing the health of the body tissues and the whole person. It is the person who feels pain, much like it is the person who is thirsty or hungry.
