Pain Management


Patients and medical professionals are turning to alternative approaches for pain management.  One leading form of alternative pain management is hypnotherapy


Current traditional medical methods for the treatment of pain involve drugs and surgery.  Both of these have potentially harmful, life-affecting side effect, including addiction, physiological risks, and negative psychological effects.  More over, the high costs of prescription drugs can be a serious barrier for people without adequate insurance.  To avoid these negative aspects of pharmaceutical and surgery, increasing numbers of health professionals and patients themselves are turning to hypnosis, a cost-effective treatment alternative without the risk of addiction or physical injury.


More and more studies are showing that hypnosis is effective for pain management. 


"If this (hypnosis) were a drug, everyone would be using it," says David Spiegel, MD, a psychiatrist at Stanford University. "Changing your mental set can change what's going on in your body."


"Most patients benefit from the use of hypnotic suggestion for pain relief," says Guy Montgomery, Ph.D., a behavioral scientist at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York. (Montgomery published a meta-analysis on the subject in the April 2, 2000 issue of the International Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis.)
