Massage Therapy For Pain Management – Types of Chronic Pain
There are different types of chronic pain that a person may experience because of different medical conditions:
These are deep aches, which are generally described as pain in a wider area of the body.
This is an immediate, intense spike of pain in a localized part of the body.
It commonly refers to the crushing, tightening, or squeezing pressure in the chest area.
It is usually described as tight squeezing in a very concentrated area of the body, making the pain feel more intense without shared distribution of the pain.
This is an itchy, numbing type of pain that usually affects the hands, arms, legs, and feet. Tingling is sometimes described as being pricked by pins and needles.
It is a form of pain that is caused by the force applied to the muscles. Pressure normally feels like a dense tension.
This is a painful, involuntary spasm of one or more muscles, usually described as sharp and convulsing pain.
This is an irritation in a part of the body that feels hot and flushed, usually with visual redness accompanying the pain around the affected area.
This is a burning type of pain that is accompanied by an electric-like shock that spreads along the limbs.
This is the term for the loss of sensation in a certain part of the body. Sometimes the tingling feeling accompanies numbness, where the surface of the skin has lost sensation and the nerves are feeling prickly.
