Trauma Recall and PTSD
Trauma recall is how we explain the bodies physical reaction to an emotional trauma.
Studies have shown that chronic pain might not only be caused by physical injury but also by stress and emotional issues. In particular, people who have experienced trauma and suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) are often at a higher risk to develop chronic pain.
It is becoming more accepted that emotional stress can lead to stomachaches, irritable bowel syndrome, and headaches, but might not know that it can also cause other physical complaints and even chronic pain. One logical reason for this: studies have found that the more anxious and stressed people are, the more tense and constricted their muscles are, over time causing the muscles to become fatigued and inefficient.
During a traumatic event, the nervous system goes into survival mode triggering the sympathetic nervous system and sometimes has difficulty reverting back into a relaxed mode again. If the nervous system stays in survival mode, stress hormones such as cortisol are constantly released, causing an increase in blood pressure and blood sugar, which can in turn reduce the immune system's ability to heal. Physical symptoms start to manifest when the body is in constant distress.
Here at The Jade Healing Centre we work with your therapists to create a holistic approach, where we work with the bodies response to the emotional trauma.
Treat a symptom by fixing the cause,
fix the cause by helping the person.
