Pain and especially chronic pain (CRPS) is one of the most common reasons for patients to consult a doctor. Living with chronic pain is a life-hardenining process. We must always keep in mind some points. Chronic pain management is not evaluated holistically in modern medicine. The presence of chronic regional pain syndrome and how severe they are depends on the mental state, general personality traits and social environment of the person concerned. As well as their metabolic status.
However, in some people, the body may react with anxiety, chronic pain depression or sleep disorders as well as pain control problems . Especially chronic pain and depression is affecting people’s social life. With the combination of these symptoms, the person becomes inoperable and creates an additional burden. We can also call all these symptoms “triggering negative factors”. The factors that intensify the pain. For this reason, our approach in chronic pain treatment should be holistic.
Disease’s Defining: How is It Different From Acute Pain?
Chronic pain usually begins with acute pain. These pains should be interpreted as an alarm signal and should tell you: “Take action against the chronic pain syndrome now, otherwise there is a risk of permanent damage.”
Acute pain does not necessarily mean damage to the body, but warns of long-term damage. For example, when you first feel the tension in your lower back, you should act directly.
What Happens in Your Body When You Experience Chronic Pain?
With crps disease, the brain’s warning and guidance function is lost. For this reason, it has been seen as an independent clinical picture independent of cause and effect.
For example, if you injure your finger, many pain sensors are activated at this point. Pain in the form of electrical signals is transmitted through the entire nervous system to your brain. This eventually processes the pain signal and sends the “pain” message.
Once the cause of the pain has been addressed and the wound has healed, the pain alarm usually goes away. However, in the case of crps syndrome, pain transmission does not stop even after your wound has healed for a long time.
The nervous system develops hypersensitivity to pain and creates a memory of pain. Subsequently, the disease persists, especially affecting the back.
There is 10 important question for detection of this syndrome.

What does pain memory do?
Pain memory is responsible for this disease. For example, if acute pain occurs after an operation, the pain is stored in the memory. Even if the cause of the pain is removed, the pain memory can remember and trigger the pain. This is where multimodal therapy comes in to avoid further surgery.

Which exercise methods are suitable for this disease?

How is the syndrome related to the psyche?
People with pre-existing psychiatric illnesses or exposed to work or family stress are more likely to experience crps. The social environment is often unaware of the crps experienced.
