Neuroscience of Pain

We have discovered a lot about how pain works in the nervous system over the last 20 years - understanding what's going on with your pain can make a big difference.

This is the way I try to explain it ....

 

 

You can find other explanations from Lorimer Moseley here .... (You might notice I nicked some of his ideas)

Or "The mysterious science of pain"

The message from these scientific discoveries is that pain is caused by activity in the nervous system 
If your pain goes up and down - sometimes it's really bad and sometimes not so bad - then using pain management techniques can help to turn down this activity.
That means less pain and you being able to do more of what you want to do!
