How dangerous is this really?

  1. 1. (Understand &) Explain Pain Lorimer Moseley NHMRC Senior Research Fellow Prince of Wales Medical Research Institute, Sydney, Australia Senior Fellow The GAMFI project University of Oxford, UK © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  2. 2. Nociception is neither sufficient nor necessary for pain © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  3. 3. The relationship between nociception and pain is variable © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  4. 4. Pain Tissue danger pain Take action – remove danger © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  5. 5. © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  6. 6. Complex reasoning mechanisms based on experience, context, environment…MEANING © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  7. 7. Complex reasoning p ain mechanisms based on experience, context, environment…MEANING © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  8. 8. Complex reasoning mechanisms based on experience, context, environment…MEANING “How dangerous is this really?” © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
  9. 9. Pain does not provide an accurate indication of tissue state – It makes us take action to promote our well-being (get out of danger!) © GL Moseley www.BodyInMind.com.au
