    pain signals.
    Physiotherapy & acupuncture take advantage of this phenomenon.
    * 2-The gate can also be shut by the release of pain-relieving opioids, either produced naturally by the body.
    Or introduced artificially in the form of analgesics like Aspirin & Morphine.
    * 3-Psychological stress can temporarily shut off pain too ,
    e.g. footballer may continue to play despite injury & a soldier continue to fight despite wounds.
