Fokusert oppmerksomhet kan påvirke smerter

En interessant post her om hvordan fokusert oppmerksomhet endrer koblinger i hjernen. Dette er interessant ifm endring av vaner, påvirkning av langvarige smerter, samt hvordan vi kan bli flinkere til det meste 🙂

Et lite utdrag her. Les hele ved å klikke på linken under:

#MT  Summary for impatient readers: focus of attention physically determines which synapses in your brain get stronger, and which areas of your cortex physically grow in size. The implications of this provide direct guidance for alteration of behaviors and motivational patterns. This is used for this purpose extensively: for instance, many benefits of the Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy approach rely on this mechanism.

Take a moment to consider what this means.

A man is sitting in his living room, in front of a chessboard. Classical music plays in the background. The man is focused, thinking about the next move, about his chess strategy, and about the future possibilities of the game. His neural networks are optimizing, making him a better chess player.

A man is sitting in his living room, in front of a chessboard. Classical music plays in the background. The man is focused, thinking about the music he hears, listening to the chords and anticipating the sounds still to come. His neural networks are optimizing, making him better at understanding music and hearing subtleties within a melody.

A man is sitting in his living room, in front of a chessboard. Classical music plays in the background. The man is focused, gritting his teeth as another flash of pain comes from his bad back. His neural networks are optimizing, making the pain more intense, easier to feel, harder to ignore.

Fysisk aktivitet tidlig i livet er positivt for hjernen #MT

“The implication is that exercising during development, as your brain is growing, is changing the brain in concert with normal developmental changes, resulting in your having more permanent wiring of the brain in support of things like learning and memory,” says Bucci. “It seems important to [exercise] early in life.”

Dr. Mick A. Thacker om smerte på et teoretisk/filosofisk plan. #MT

Morten Høegh (Twitter @MH_DK) intervjuet Dr. Thacker forrige uke under http://noigroup.com/en/Home sin kongress i Adelaide. Her snakker han om embodyment / disembodyment i forbindelse med smerter. I kroniske smertetilstander tror han at vi skal fascilitere disembodyment av den smertefulle kroppen.

Et eksempel på embodyment er om du nå tenker på din venstre albue, beveger den og kjenner at den beveger seg. Du har nå blitt oppmerksom på den kroppsdelen – noe du kanskje ikke har vært tidligere idag. Thacker, slik jeg tolker det, mener at i kroniske smertetilstander har man en veldig sterk embodyment av den smertefulle kroppen og klarer man å jobbe mot disembodyment av den i flere kontekster (kognitive, fysiske, sosiale, biologiske) vil man få smertelette.

Dette er right down my alley av interesse rundt smerter, så jeg anbefaler varmt dette intervjuet fra bloggen http://videnomsmerter.wordpress.com/2012/05/05/interview-med-dr-mick-a-thacker-adelaide-2012/

Er det behandlingen som gjør oss bedre mon tro? #MT

Her var en flott artikkel som belyser det faktum at det ikke nødvendigvis er behandlingen man har fått som virker, selvom man føler seg bedre etter behandling.

Jeg håper "alle" leser denne her før neste besøk hos en behandler.

"The best we can do (which I strive for on this site) is to base our decisions and theories on the best evidence available. A part of most (if not all) training to become a healthcare practitioner involves learning what good evidence is. Still, healthcare practitioners fall victim to biases and logical fallacies all the time. So do I, and so do you.

But that’s okay! In fact, it should be expected.

This is why the scientific method exists.

Science isn’t some institution or authority, nor is it something nerds invented to make themselves feel cool for discovering things. Science is a method of testing things in a way that attempts to weed out our errors in thinking, and see if something truly works.

How do we know if something works (or doesn’t)?"
