It has been said the fear of pain is worse than pain itself. Indeed, many people experiencing pain become enmeshed in an endless fear-avoidance cycle, which compounds pain, isolation, addiction, depression and disability. Evidence abounds demonstrating pain neuroscience education provides a clinical tool to de-catastrophize pain, giving patients permission, tools, and confidence to get moving again. Manual therapy alone is a passive activity that has been demonstrated to not provide lasting pain relief and functional gain. Beginning treatment with a hands off and exercise only approach often worsens the patients pain reports.
Pain neuroscience education is an essential tool when combined with an appropriate balance of traditional treatment methods for meaningful and lasting change while combating the opioid crisis. Attain evidence-based treatment strategies to confidently and effectively offer improved quality of life for one of the most challenging patient populations.
