The (Piano) Keys to Fibromyalgia Pain Relief

Published: August 24, 2017

A recent study published in the journal Clinical Rheumatology presents a novel therapy, and gives us a critical key, to easing fibromyalgia pain. Pain has two key physiological components. The first is an electrical signal generated in response to a stimulus and sent to your brain. This is no different than the signal your brain receives in response to the sensations of heat, softness, cold and countless other stimuli. The second component is how your brain reacts to the signal. Unfortunately when the signal is pain, your brain reacts by creating the physiological condition of suffering.

Note from Dr. T: Although sometimes it seems you don't have much control over your medical situation (which is not really true in my experience), you do have control over how you view and respond to it. So although it's critical to address the physical causes of your pain, it's also very helpful to address your suffering — which is often tied to how you respond to the pain and stress.
