Law of Pain: The Biochemical Origin of Pain Theory

Law of Pain: The Biochemical Origin of Pain Theory – We propose a Law of Pain which states that: The origin of all pain is inflammation and the inflammatory response[21]. This Law unifies all pain syndromes as sharing a common origin of inflammation and the inflammatory response. It is our theory that nociceptive and neuropathic […]

Law of Pain: The Prior Theories

Law of Pain: The Prior Theories – We are proposing a unifying theory or law of pain, which states: The origin of all pain is inflammation and the inflammatory response. The biochemical mediators of inflammation include cytokines, neuropeptides, growth factors and neurotransmitters.   Abstract We are proposing a unifying theory or law of pain, which […]

Gate Control Pain Theory

(ĐTĐ) – The gate control theory of pain was developed by Melzack and Wall to account for mechanisms by which other cutaneous stimuli and emotional states alter the level of pain. Tiếng Việt >> They suggested that within the substantia gelatinosa of the dorsal horn, there are interneurons that presynaptically inhibit transmission of nociceptive information […]

Pain Pathways

(ĐTĐ) – Pain is a central perception of multiple primary sensory modalities. This interpretive function is complex, involving psychological, neuroanatomic, neurochemical, and neurophysiologic factors of both the pain stimulus and the memory of past pain experiences. Tiếng Việt >> The peripheral mechanisms for sensing and modulating pain have been extensively studied during the past 30 […]

Temporomandibular Disorders

Temporomandibular Disorders

(ĐTĐ) – The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is the hinge joint that connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the temporal bone of the skull. Temporomandibular disorders (TMD) occur as a result of problems with the jaw, jaw joint, and surrounding facial muscles that control chewing and moving the jaw. This joint is immediately in front of […]

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (Muscle Pain)

Myofascial Pain Syndrome (muscle Pain)

(ĐTĐ) – Myofascial pain syndrome (MPS) is a fancy way to describe muscle pain. It refers to pain and inflammation in the body’s soft tissues. Myofascial pain is a chronic condition that affects the fascia (connective tissue that covers the muscles). Myofascial pain syndrome may involve either a single muscle or a muscle group. In […]
