Training in Pain Reversal Therapy (PRT), psychophysiological disorder and medical unexplained symptoms.
To treat chronic or persistent pain, chronic symptoms such as migraine, fibromyalgia, irritable bowel, chronic fatigue, pelvic pain and many other so-called and medical unexplained symptoms, we must get out of the corset of the dualism of mind and body, where, either it is psychological, or it is physical, and recognize and apply what scientific evidence shows us, which is: pain and other conditions such as anxiety, are produced by neurological mechanisms, that is, by learned neural pathways.
These learned neural pathways are anatomical changes in the brain, which means that the resulting symptoms are generated in the brain and not “in your head.”
In fact, it’s about very real pain and conditions, to the point that recent studies have shown in functional magnetic resonance imaging, the anatomical-physiological changes that occur at the neuronal level when this type of pain is felt, which we say is learned as a consequence of an interpretation of danger or threat, by the brain, in a state of consciousness.
In other words, it is produced by an adaptation of the brain, due to the property that the brain has, called neuroplasticity, that same neuroplasticity, or brain adaptive capacity, which leads us to the production of this type of pain and symptoms, it can get us out of it, that is, the brain itself with a new learning, can reverse it.
The therapy proposed by this approach to be pain and symptoms free, without surgery, medication, or eternal treatments of physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, etc. we call it Pain Reversal Therapy, and it also can reverse many of the conditions and symptoms that we have mentioned above, and because they are called chronic, or without medical explanation, we were tend to believe until now that they were incurable, and only can achieve relief or managing.
This approach is inspired by the pioneering and empirical works of Dr. John Sarno, a cutting-edge education in pain neuroscience, and what we call “conscience medicine” (being this our very particular contribution of this approach).
Pain Reversal Therapy (PRT) is a system of both psychological and physical techniques, and the development of consciousness, whose fundamental pillar is education in the neurobiology of pain. Techniques such as Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) , Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy (EAET) , neuroeducation, “informed mindfulness”, graded exposure to movement, guided motor visualization, journaling, among others, are dynamically sequenced and adapted to the particularity of each individual, so that the brain, thanks to neuroplasticity, is trained to reinterpret and respond to the body’s signals (including emotions) in a healthy way. Thus, reversing the so-called chronic or persistent pain, and many other symptoms and conditions, which until now, due to being chronic, were believed incurable.
Pain Reprocessing Therapy has recently been validated as the current most effective treatment for chronic pain in a University of Colorado randomized controlled study published in JAMA Psychiatry. In this study, there were 100 patients with chronic back pain. Half of them received PRT twice a week for four weeks, and half of them received the usual treatment. In the PRT group, 98% of the patients improved, and 66% of the patients felt no or almost no pain at the end of treatment. These results were largely sustained one year later.
