Your brain can be reprogrammed, [which can] shape perception.  Thanks to the inherent plasticity of our neural networks, a brain that becomes oversensitized can, over time with the appropriate approach, relearn normal sensitivity.

Essential Parts of Maintaining Good Quality of Life.

Just one painful incident can make the brain overreact to future experiences.

“All pain is very real, however, there are many situations in which pain does not seem to match the amount of danger your body tissues are truly in. . . . Pain depends on your evaluation of danger and the likely benefit of protective behavior, not on the true danger level or the true benefit of protective behavior.”

Lorimer Moseley

The Mental Health for Chronic Pain programs help raise a combination of awareness and activity. Pain educators help patients understand that their pain is, an output of the brain designed to protect you. It’s not something that comes from the tissues of your body.

The programs are designed to essentially retrain the body’s pain system, particularly the brain, to be less sensitive.  According to the Pain Revolutionaries, that process begins by understanding that pain is the brain’s response to perceived threat or past experinces.

Chronic pain is a common and expensive condition.  In the U.S., 1 in 3 Americans deals with the condition. The price tag of treatment, including medication, surgery and other often invasive options, as well as lost productivity and additional costs — runs more than $600 billion annually.  We beleieve that much of what we spend on chronic pain; not just money, but also time, energy and quality of life can be saved.

Pain Management treatments should include proper Nutrition, Exercise and Conditioning.
