    Do you know your new movies "The biopsychosocial model - Explanation of chronic pain disorders" and "Pain processing in the brain: What changes with chronic pain"?

     

    What exactly is the biopsychosocial model and what does it have to do with the development and maintenance of chronic primary pain? In the development of chronic pain, biological, psychological and social factors all play a role. These three factors can overlap and influence each other. The onset of a chronic pain disorder can start from any of the three areas. Get more information in the movie.

     

    Pain processing in the brain: What is different in chronic pain? This film was developed to illustrate the extremely complex processes of pain transmission and pain processing in the brain. The film outlines what happens in the brain with acute pain and how this is different with chronic pain.

    Everything that we perceive from our environment and from our subjective experience is passed on to our brain as stimuli: for example, movement stimuli from the muscles, sensory stimuli such as hearing and pain stimuli. The film is aimed at children, adolescents and young adults with chronic pain, as well as their families, friends and practitioners from primary to tertiary care. Watch the film.
