What is the difference between acute and chronic pain?


In the case of acute pain, cause and region of the pain are intensively interconnected, the causality is relatively simple, and the duration limited with a decreasing intensity of pain.
In the case of chronic pain, cause and region of the pain are mostly extensively interconnected, with multiple causalities, an open ended duration and an increasing intensity of pain.

Empirical pain research of Atlas-medicine found out, that chronic pain as dominant regulatory signal can suck in negative information signals from all body regions.
This means that functional cell units that are energetically weak and are distant from the location of pain can intensify the pain. External negative information can via the sense organs promote e.g. exogenous depressions, which further intensify the pain signal. For cybernetics chronic pain represents an information pyramid of our current state of health. This perspective opens up the possibility to withdraw from the pain, layer by layer, its negative potential. Reducing chronic pain step by step is at the same time proof and control of such interaction. This also explains why a permanent suppression of pain by constant medication must lead to a "cover up" of the pain information in a region and in the end only aggravates the situation of chronic pain.

Contralateral pain therapy and diagnostic,
a medical cybernetic treatment
according to Koerner

In this therapy the pain is directed through a manual impulse pushing it straight to the contralateral side and out of the body. This impulse together with the centrally acting TBS-IMPULS allows for a diagnostic investigation and gradual reduction of the chronic pain potential.
