Basic knowledge of CRPS (RSD)
CRPS is an abbreviation for complex regional pain syndrome, and RSD is an abbreviation for reflex sympathetic dystrophy. The reason why this society uses the notation of CRPS (RSD) is that before the International Association for Pain Studies (IASP) established the diagnostic name of CRPS, the old disease name “RSD” was used for a long time in clinical practice and is still used today. because there is something Historically, the burning pain that occurred after peripheral nerve injury was called causalgia. It is called reflex sympathetic dystrophy (RSD) because of tissue atrophy caused by After that, it was found that sympathetic nerve problems were not inevitable, and a group of diseases with similar symptoms was collectively called "CRPS."
Clumsy, Yips, and Osgood -The Viewpoint of Mind-Body Integration-
Clumsy is a motor circuit error that occurs during the growth period, Yips is a motor circuit error that can occur in all generations, not just during the growth period, and Osgood's disease (hereinafter referred to as Osgood's disease) is a motor circuit error that tends to occur during the growth period. Pain below the knee (near the tibial tubercle) associated with Clumsy and Osgood pointed out that the rapid growth of the musculoskeletal system (hard expansion) is not enough to keep up with the neural response of the brain (soft update), resulting in kinesthetic ataxia (performance deterioration) and pain. cause.
Back pain and stiff shoulders are red flags for cancer?
Low back pain and stiff shoulders are among the physical changes experienced by people with cancer, and the frequency of finding cancer among patients with low back pain and stiff shoulders who visit medical institutions is less than 1%.
Therefore, 99% of back pain and stiff shoulders are not related to cancer.
What is EBM (Evidence Based Medicine)?
At EBM, a third-party organization collects and analyzes RCTs conducted around the world on a single theme and publishes the results. Such information is regularly updated and published on the Internet and in books.
BFI [Brain-Finger Interface]
BFI is an abbreviation of Brain Finger Interface (technology that connects the brain and fingers), and is a manual therapy defined as "desensitization and reintegration method by somatosensory stimulation". It is a treatment that attempts to improve various disorders such as pain and numbness by working on the brain through "fine and detailed stimulation of the skin, bones and joints of the whole body".
Outline report of the general lecture "What is pain? -The abyss of the world-"
When CRPS (RSD) develops following trauma, many medical professionals cannot escape from the belief that it is a hard pain and cannot have a soft pain perspective. Pain is an emotional output response that cannot be verbalized, caused by the opening of the gates of boundary consciousness.
Side effects of medications that you should at least know about
Long-term use of painkillers and psychotropic drugs (chemicals that pass through the blood-brain barrier into the brain) can increase the risk of dementia.
In this article, I have attached a clipped image that explains the side effects of such a drug. Please use it as a reference. Please see this page for polypharmacy (health hazards caused by multiple drugs).
P-reduction -A reducing drug approach for polypharmacy-
Side effects that are likely to occur in the elderly when taking multiple drugs are ``lightheadedness'', ``falling'', ``deterioration of cognitive function'', and ``loss of appetite''. It is reported that more than 40% of elderly people who use 5 or more drugs have this problem. The biggest problem with polypharmacy is side effects, as well as increased drug costs and wasted medical expenses due to leftover drugs.
Effectiveness of Touch Care for Dementia - Relationship between Brain Fatigue (Brain Overwork) and Dementia
In France, the pillar of treatment for dementia has switched from drugs to holistic therapy (holistic medicine), and in other European countries, considering the limitations of drugs, medical care that emphasizes communication between people, including touch care. I am shifting to watching.
We believe that "intervention on the skin" is one of the most important factors in trauma management, locomotorium rehabilitation, post-stroke rehabilitation, post-stroke care, and pain management for CRPS (RSD).
Also, the skin around the joints has a slight rotational movement (gliding) that is invisible to the eye. If you guide this with a gentle and delicate technique, you may see a change that you can't recognize.
Relationship between "Somatic Symptoms Syndrome/Illness Anxiety/Conversion Syndrome" and Brain Fatigue (Brain Overwork)
In clinical research, a considerable number of brain fatigue (brain overwork
are reported to be lurking.
In the various life cycles of each individual, when unavoidable conflicts continue for a long period of time or are exposed to sudden and powerful stress, the energy balance of the brain is significantly disturbed, and this manifests itself as brain fatigue.
It is already common knowledge in Sweden, a leading country in oxytocin research, that the act of "touching" has an unexpected pain-relieving effect. However, in Japan, it is not widely used in the medical field, and the effect of touching is not recognized in the first place, so it is easy to see medical equipment, injections, and medicines that look good and are easy to understand.
In April 2020, what happens when the practitioner himself touches the patient in an earthing state? When I conducted the experiment, I found that the patient was also grounded. It was later named "Earthing Touch" and is now positioned as one of BReIN. It has been found that Earthing Touch is also very suitable as a treatment for very sensitive people such as HSPs and Empaths.
Flaccid touch (touching for acute trauma)
It has been reported that manual touching of the fracture site alters electrical conductivity. For all acute injuries, including bone fractures, special touching can provide ultra-quick recovery.
Fatigue Fractures and the Relationship between Tensegrity and Brain Fatigue
Loss of tensegrity resonance as a skeleton reduces the physical strength of the bone. When the skin or muscles become overtensioned or undertensioned, this internal model of the skeleton (resonance characteristics) is impaired, resulting in a decrease in elastic capacity. As a result, the lower limb bones are unable to disperse the stress against the load and the impact of jumping, etc., which leads to shin splints and stress fractures.
What we learned from experiments on broken hearted brains - pain & emotions & individual differences.
At the University of Michigan in the United States, 40 men and women who had been dumped by their lover over the past six months were gathered, and they were first given pain by heat stimulation, and their brain reactions at that time were investigated.
Next, they were shown a picture of their ex-lover and examined their brain's reaction to the picture. Surprisingly, the same area was activated when the pain was applied.
Social voice distance - Proliferating society of boilers
Conversation on a train, conversation in a cafe or restaurant, and so on, many people consider their surroundings by consciously or unconsciously adjusting the volume of their voice to match the atmosphere of the place. However, we call this ability social voice distance (SBD), and broadly speaking, it refers to the state in which this is followed as an implicit manner.
What is brain elastoplasticity? (Explanation for the general public)
When explaining the approach to working on the brain, it means healing the tired brain and promoting rewiring of neural circuits. The concept of plasticity does not include a healing effect on the brain...
So the term neuroplasticity does not imply a process of healing the brain.
The process of healing the brain (eliminating brain fatigue) means, so to speak, restoration to the original state, and can be expressed in terms of restoration, that is, elasticity.
BReIN [ Brain elasto-plasticity induction non-invasive selective integration ]
BReIN is an abbreviation of the English name [Brain elasto-plasticity induction non-invasive selective integration], which is an abbreviation of the letters "B・R・e・I・N" of the main words. It is similar to the English word "BRAIN" for "brain", but the spelling is different in one place. The "A" is replaced with a lowercase "e". The reason for this is to emphasize the concept of "elasto-plasticity"
What is mind-body integrative medicine?
In mind-body integration therapy, in addition to the brain-gut correlation, brain-skin correlation, brain node correlation, and brain sensation correlation, the “brain intelligence correlation” is also emphasized. For example, the brain that has lost sight tries to adapt to social life by enhancing the function of hearing. At the same time as we advocate the notation of "mutual feeling" instead of the five senses, we call the close relationship between the brain and mutual feeling the brain feeling correlation.
"Emotional control", "self-esteem", "self-efficacy", "optimism", etc. have been discussed as keywords for enhancing resilience. There are no studies targeting societal-level groups.
Social sequelae caused by the corona disaster masknication (communication with masks) ~ To prevent mask addiction (obsessive-compulsive disorder) ~
The impact of masks on the brain and the communication problems caused by masks pose serious problems for Japan's future. Masknication is a term coined by our association that refers to “communication through masks”. There is a risk that non-verbal communication skills will deteriorate, and there is a danger of changing the state of society for future generations.
What to call the harasser (perpetrator) - a smart way to promote awareness.
"Sexual harassment, power harassment, moral harassment, and smoldering" still lurk in social life, and it seems that some people lack awareness. As one of the measures to have such people casually notice, we propose the following coined words. Seklar, Powerer, Moraler, Sumorer, Boiler.
Cognitive science of smelt harassment
The olfactory sensing mechanism corresponds in a one-to-one relationship with glomeruli receiving axonal projection from olfactory cells that have captured odorants (substrates). The morphology of expression of this glomerulus is depicted two-dimensionally on the surface of the olfactory bulb, and when this image information is input to the brain, recognition of "what is it smelling?" is born.
Mirror therapy & mirror touching (tactile and visual integration method)
By using tactile stimulation together, Mirror Touching shows effects that were not found in conventional mirror therapy. Here are some of the actual cases. While normal mirror therapy is a cross-modality of vision and kinematics (a phenomenon in which simultaneous input of different senses affects brain information processing), mirror touching is a cross-modality of vision & touch, or vision & touch & kinesthetic. increase.
What is Cognitive Science-Based Medicine (CSBM)?
Cognitive science experiments have shown that pain has an emotional origin. Studies have shown that the brains of people who have been ostracized or lost love show activity similar to that of people who are in pain. "Cognitive Science Based Medicine" is medical care based on the knowledge of cognitive science. CSBM for short. Mirror therapy and mirror touching are famous as treatments that symbolize this.
