EPISODE 315: Chronic pain: Is it all in the brain?
Chronic pain—the most common of which is back pain and digestive pain—affects as many as one in four people. Pain plays a crucial role in the body as a clear sign that something is injured, diseased, or in need of extra care. However, when pain becomes chronic, many times the pain signals sent to the brain no longer correspond with any kind of dysfunction. The pain is literally all in the brain, and faulty neural wiring can ruin your life.
When people are in constant pain, they will try anything: yoga, meditation, acupuncture, cannabis, and, of course, opioids. Sometimes these solutions work, sometimes they don’t, but statistics show that chronic pain is a problem that’s getting worse, not better. So what can we do?
On this week’s Yoga Talk Show, we will explore a new type of noninvasive, nondrug treatment for pain that involves electrical stimulation to rewire problematic neural connections, otherwise known as Scrambler Therapy®.
What You’ll Learn:
- Why 100 million Americans have chronic pain
- Why pain can be present with or without any underlying condition
- Why the threat-neural matrix complicates your pain
- Why all pain is in the brain, and the solution to all chronic pain is rewiring this mind-body neural fail
