Let’s say you have pain

  • A massage therapist may think it’s a tight muscle and you need a massage
  • A physical therapist may think it’s joint or muscle imbalance and prescribes stretches and exercises
  • A orthopedics may think it’s a joint or nerve issue and prescribes medication (pain pill muscle relaxer or an injection) or sometimes surgery
  • A chiropractor may think it’s a joint and does an adjustment

All these treatments work, however, most of our patients have tried these and not found success

Brain Based Pain

Pure brain-based pain occurs when your brain tells you that your body hurts, even though there may be no physical injury. For example, Phantom Limb pain is when a person feels pain in the limb that is no longer there. This is a clear sign of brain-based pain.

Often, people with Brain Based Pain experience going to the doctor and being told that their pain is NOT real. They are told that the pain is all in their head because no injury was found on the MRI or X-ray. The person is either given medication to cope with the pain they say it is “all in their head” or sent to a therapist.

Here at Georgia Chiropractic Neurology Center, our Doctors are trained to understand what parts of a person’s pain is coming the part of the body that hurts and what aspects of the pain are brain based.

But this pain is physical NOT psychological. It is a physical alteration of brain activation that causes the pain.


Body Based Pain

People get different types of injuries such as; pulling a muscle, tissue tear or a disc injury. Pain from these injuries can be coming from different tissues even in the same area. For instance, your can get pain from a tendon and from the fascia around the tendon. Each tissue may need a different treatment.

Most people will see a specialist for their specific injury, but the problem with this is, the specialist is only looking through the lens of their specific expertise and may miss seeing the whole picture.

If the treatments do not address all of the different problem areas people will often only experience partial relief and continue to live life with chronic pain.

Chronic pain syndromes are the cause of debilitating suffering for many individuals. We understand how to help people heal from chronic pain because our doctors examine and treat the whole person.
