In preparation for any chronic pain coping technique, it is important to learn how to use focus and deep breathing to relax the body. Pain control techniques primarily involve altered focus. It is a favorite technique for demonstrating how much force the mind can alter sensations in the body. Focus your attention on a specific non-painful part of the body and change the pain sensation in that part of the body. As the name suggests, this chronic pain technique involves mentally isolating the painful body part from the rest of the body, or visualizing the body and mind as separate, away from one's mind. Sensory segmentation: This technique involves dividing the sensation into different parts. Mental anesthesia: This involves visualizing an injection of numbing anesthetic (such as novocaine) into the area of pain, such as imagining a numbing solution being injected into your lower back. Mental painkillers building on the mental anesthesia concept, this technique involves imagining an injection of a strong pain reliever, such as morphine, into the painful area. Alternatively, you can imagine that your brain is producing massive amounts of endorphins, the body's natural pain-relieving substances, and flushing them to painful parts of your body.
