To evaluate the probability of great Orthodontic Health, we need to breakdown the cycle from the time of the accident when the ball is set in motion. The body is affected as a result of the awareness of a condition that will affect the body.
Several conditions have manifested themselves as a result of an accident. They are: TMJ, whiplash, and disc displacement. Actions that are now limited as a result of the accident are: jaw motion and muscle tension/relaxation. The longer the decreased mobility and presence of pain the more the feelings head toward a feelings of hopelessness, awareness of pain leads to awareness of anger. Thoughts head toward negative emotions and thoughts with “Why me?” & “I can’t do anything right!”
Remember the statement in a previous blog that said: Sometimes it shows that a negative emotional state gives people a better chance to cope with situations than a positive state. People who seem to be in a positive mood often are more prone to judgmental mistakes. But in a more negative mood they tend to be more correct in their decisions.
Again the longer our conditions exist the longer the effect it has on the patient. Socially the family is affected due to the patient’s health with the lack of ability to perform duties that they are usually responsible for handling, and then negative obstacles’ pop up: strained family relationship for one. Due to the lack of healing of
health problems that are from the accident of the conditions we remain out of work. These problems and more are used as an excuse for missing work.
Our actions that substantiate the negative response to the accident area: substance abuse related to missed work due to pain and abuse of prescription medication. The more pain, the more abuse of meds the more the family dynamics are affected and the patient is under pressure. This is where the clenching of the teeth and tension on muscles increase with more awareness of pain is increased.
After all of our actions start to head toward “Chronic Behavior”, it is not always a good thing. We again break this down into: Feelings-depression and frustration due to the lack of health improvement of our condition. Socially we feel we should get special treatment from friends and family. Actions that place a negative feeling on us are: over use of health and medical services seeking drug therapies, abuse of prescription drugs for pain. Now the final thought is: “I’ll never get better.”
All of the actions, feelings, and results do not help our condition improve. This is where you need to build new skills toward a more positive lifestyle that will support the patient in making those changes. Seek help with your support system to make the changes health changes you need to make and awareness of what you need to. The people from these groups will help you achieve your goals and stay on track. They are: family, friends, and the medical team. What this shows is that a negative attitude can be turned around to a more positive attitude with a little help and guidance by changing our feelings that affect our actions.
