Brainman – Explains Pain in Five Minutes

We now realize that understanding pain is not as easy or simple as once thought. It used to be that if the scan showed disc disease we would consider that as a cause for the pain. Though the changes we see in imaging can often contribute to our pain experiences, they are rarely causal in and of themselves.

Pain is a Universal Human Experience

That means we have to start thinking differently about pain and Brainman can help with that. One part of understanding persistent or chronic pain is realizing that our nervous system plays a big part in processing the information that can result in pain. When pain persists beyond normal tissue healing times, it becomes more about the sensitivity of the nervous system and less about healing tissues or damaged tissues.
