Pacientes com dores crônicas sofrem mais do que apenas a dor, depressão e ansiedade, distúrbios do sono e dificuldade de tomar decisões, também diminuem significativamente a sua qualidade de vida.

Atenção, abrir em uma nova janela.

A dor crônica pode lesar o cérebro:

 
     Pacientes com dores crônicas sofrem mais do que apenas a dor, depressão e ansiedade, distúrbios do sono e dificuldade de tomar decisões, também diminuem significativamente a sua qualidade de vida.

 

     Estudos recentes têm demonstrado que a dor crônica prejudica áreas da região cortical do cérebro relacionadas a dor.

 

      Possivelmente, como propoem vários autores, a dor, a longo prazo altera a conectividade funcional de regiões corticais conhecidas como DMN, ou seja rede neural em modo default.

 

      A dor crônica tende a causar alterações na DNM. Está afirmação está calcada em estudos que utilizam ressonância magnética funcional que demonstram diferenças cerebrais significativas na comparação entre pessoas normais e pacientes com dor crônica.
