Chronic Pain

New research in the past ten years has shown that pain is 100% produced by your brain as a response to a perceived threat. If something is happening in your body that your nerves and brain determine is “dangerous” then you are going to experience pain. With chronic pain, a nerve or multiple nerves have become “sensitive” or too active and react very quickly to sensory information that may or may not be causing tissue harm.

How can physical therapy help?

At LBPT we utilize a unique approach to treat chronic pain. Therapeutic Neuroscience Education to understand the science behind the pain, Graded Motor Imagery to address long-standing nerve-pain programming, and more traditional physical therapy treatments of manual or hands-on techniques and stretching or strengthening.
