YOUR PAIN IS REAL

THE RELATIONSHIP TO STRESS AND BRAIN-GENERATED PAIN

PPD/TMS (Psychophysiologic Disorders/Tension Myostis Syndrome)

PPD/TMS are disorders that result from the system being in a state of dysregulation. This happens when the system has been affected by chronic stress, hidden stress, psychological stressors, repressed emotions, and adverse experiences.
The mind and body are interconnected, and these psychological factors can cause very real and painful physiological symptoms.

Treating chronic pain effectively involves an integrative approach

This involves working with the body, brain, and nervous system to support the system in shifting to a place of health, resilience, and regulation.
This approach also lends itself well in treating anxiety and depression by getting to the root of these symptoms using a nondualistic treatment approach.

 

Pain Reprocessing Therapy

Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) is an innovative evidence-based pain relief treatment for chronic pain and conditions. PRT works to rewire the neural pathways in the brain that are causing pain in the absence of a structural condition or lasting symptoms after the body has healed from an injury or procedure. This type of pain – caused by altered neural pathways in the brain – is referred to as neuroplastic pain and neuroscience shows that this pain can be unlearned.
PRT is a technique rooted in neuroscience that moves beyond pain management into relieving chronic pain by deactivating these pain cycles. The Colorado Back Pain Study found that PRT improved symptoms in 98% of chronic back pain participants while 66% were pain-free or nearly pain-free by the end of the study. The results were maintained one year later. Functional MRI brain scans (fMRI) showed changes in the brains of those receiving PRT treatment compared to those in other groups.
