Manchester University’s study on pain management using meditation

Meditation 'reduces the emotional impact of pain making it easier to bear'.

People who meditate regularly find it easier to cope with pain because their brains anticipate it less. Those are the findings of a study from the University of Manchester, published in June 2010. The results suggest that mindfulness and meditation, as recommended by Overcoming MS, are effective tools in reducing pain, one of the most common symptoms of multiple sclerosis.
