Hypnosis for pediatric pain management

Hypnosis for pediatric pain management is a drug-free, integrated and sometimes front-line approach for treating acute and chronic pain in children.

In a review published in February 2019 in Children, investigators emphasized that the integration of nonpharmacologic therapies has become the gold standard of care in pediatric multidisciplinary pain clinics.

Kids are, of course, naturals at hypnosis and other mindfulness based interventions and as a result effective with pain management.

Hypnosis for pain management is also effective for people of all ages, including those of us old enough to qualify for AARP. If you or someone you love are suffering with acute or chronic pain give me a call at (760) 219-8079 or send me an email and find out how hypnosis can benefit you.

You can meet me at my Palm Desert Hypnosis office or online worldwide from your home or office.

On the Need for a Multidisciplinary Approach for Pediatric Pain Management

August 7, 2019: “Hypnosis. Several studies indicate that hypnotic analgesia benefits adult patients with chronic pain. “[H]ypnotic analgesia is hypothesized to enhance nervous system inhibitory processes that attenuate pain experiences through a variety of brain areas involved in pain processing,” noted the authors.1 In a meta-analysis of 18 studies (n=933), hypnosis was found to significantly reduce pain and to be superior to other psychological interventions.5

Studies in which hypnosis was examined in pediatric patients with chronic pain are scarce, but evidence suggests that this approach may be beneficial. In one randomized controlled trial, patients who underwent hypnosis vs standard medical therapy reported greater reductions in pain frequency and intensity.6 In another randomized controlled trial, self-hypnosis training was associated with better pain control and reduced morphine use during a 5-day hospital stay in adolescents.7″
