The “Gate Control Theory”
Developed by Ron Melzack and Patrick Wall, the "Gate Control Theory" states that throughout the nervous system there are many types of nerve fibers responsible for relaying all the sensory information in the human body from the limbs, tissues, and organs, to the brain. Small diameter nerve fibers carry pain impulses while large diameter fibers carry non-painful impulses, among which is vibration. Applying vibration to an area of discomfort decreases pain because touch stimulates the large fiber diameters which in turn close the “gate.”
