There is no pain until it reaches the brain.

When injured the nervous system sends a signal to the spinal cord where it becomes a neuron and travels up the spinothalamic track to the Thalamus gland where it is filtered and directed to the appropriate gland in the endocrine system for a response to the injury. The type of response depends on many factors which are discussed in this program.
