Lowering the Pain Threshold
What is Lowering the Pain Threshold?
Lowering the pain threshold refers to making someone more sensitive to pain stimuli. In a psychological context, it can also involve reducing emotional tolerance, making individuals more reactive to stressors or triggers.
Pain triggers stress for an individual, affecting their brain and senses. As pain and stress have a complicated relationship, learning to manage pain better can help an individual be more resilient to its effects.
