In Lesson 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?

Key takeaways:

  • 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.

Quotables:

“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.
