London, If you get injured on the hand try to cross in front of the body (like a form letter X). Based on the research of this powerful way to reduce pain due to injury.
Research by a team from University College London (UCL) suggests that crossing the hands can relieve pain due to injury.
The results have been published in the journal Pain also showed that the crossed hands can make the brain becomes confused with pain that occurs, so that ultimately may help reduce pain.
Researchers say this is because putting his hand on the side of the body that ‘salah’dapat disrupt sensory perception.
“In everyday life you mostly use your left hand to touch things on the left side of the world and right hand to the right side,” explained Dr Giandomenico Iannetti, from the department of physiology, pharmacology and neuroscience UCL, who led the study, as reported by BBC News.
This means, continued Dr. Iannetti, the brain area that contains the right side of the body map and a map of the right external space is usually activated together, so it is very effective for the processing of sensory stimuli.
“When you cross your arms, this map will not be activated together again, so that the brain processes sensory stimuli become less effective, including the pain that become weak,” said Dr Iannetti.
According to Dr Iannetti this discovery could potentially lead to new ways to treat pain, namely by exploiting the confusion of the brain.
“When we hurt, we do not just rub hands to feel better, but also with crossed,” explained Dr Iannetti.
Tim Dr Iannetti together Australian researchers, are now testing these theories in patients who have chronic pain conditions.
A spokesman for Pain Relief Foundation said more research to relieve chronic pain is being carried out, between the way the brain puzzling and disturbing message of pain.
