"They actually increase pain transmission, particularly in a nerve that has been damaged," says Dr. Patricia Morley-Forster, medical director of the interdisciplinary pain program at the University of Western Ontario's Schulich School of Medicine and St. Joseph's Health Care in London, Ont. "If you're anticipating something's going to give you a lot of pain, you'll generally have more pain than if you prepare yourself that something is not going to hurt. The anticipation response is a physiological (process) of increasing your own pain-killing substances to block incoming messages."

In her work, Morley-Forster is especially interested in harnessing the placebo response, which is a beneficial response to treatment that cannot be explained by the treatment alone.
"There are a lot of good pharmaceutical options out there, but they all carry side-effects," says Morley-Forster. "For some people that precludes them using anything. So...we have to have a lot of tools in our toolbox."
Those other tools include acupuncture, massage, physiotherapy and lifestyle changes. Morley-Forster adds, "I personally like warm water therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy, to try to get people to think differently about their pain.
