Ideomotor movement that would be counterproductive in a pain situation
Thought I'd link it here: Clenched Muscles Assist Self-Control
It's a very unconscious habit we get into, isn't it? Clenching distracts us from unpleasantness affecting us from other senses. Then we forget how to let it go, or are afraid to should pent-up unpleasantness flood us, maybe.
To resolve pain states clenching is exactly the wrong way to go/movement to encourage/habit to reinforce. Don't you think?

Looks like this is a technique for those of us who have inadequate control mechanisms. It may work, but....
