Chronic pain is a complex problem which is maintained by many factors including injury, stress and brain activity. Increased understanding of the role of the brain in pain has led pain experts to consider it to be a neurodegenerative disorder.’ This new understanding is also stimulating new approaches to overcoming pain based on learning how to change the brain activity which maintains it. As brain expert Norman Doidge notes, ‘the brain has its own unique way of healing and when understood many brain problems thought to be incurable can be improved and even cured.’
Mark Grant will outline a 7-step brain-smart approach to changing the brain activity which maintains chronic pain. In this one-hour talk you will learn:
How pain gets into your brain
How your physical mental and emotional experience of pain relates to brain functioning and why knowing about this matters
How to harness natural brain capacities such as attention and sensory processing to change the brain activity which maintains pain
15 brain-smart bottom-up and top down strategies for overcoming pain
Which types of strategies have the strongest ability to change brain activity associated with chronic pain
40 activities for reversing the various physical and emotional effects of chronic pain
