In Part 3, you will learn:
The answers to some of the commonly asked questions, such as:
- Does the brain get better at learning how to manage pain over time?
- How does one “unlearn” pain?
- Do traditional approaches like massage and similar physical therapies reinforce learned pain?
- Why do old injuries come back and start hurting again, years or decades later?
- The objective of the new model is to interrupt the fear-pain cycle.
- We work with the brain and nervous system to dampen down and regulate the person's pain experience by reducing fear.
- Having a personalized care plan to learn new cognitive, behavioral, physical, and emotional habits and patterns is key to pain recovery.
“A primary pain diagnosis is good news diagnosis because it’s treatable and reversible”
“Every emotion has a physical sensation, and every physical sensation has an emotion it's connected with”
“One of the ways we make this positive diagnosis is to look at symptom behavior. We build a case, we're like detectives, because when all these other things aren't working, and we've ruled out [structural causes for pain], then the work that we do at Lin is to help to rule in the brain and nervous system by building a case.
