Most drugs that treat pain manipulate channels in the brain to reduce electricity, thus dampening pain signals. Most treatments and centers for pain utilize these drugs to treat your pain which not only mask the underlying root of your pain, but increase your pain over time! With these medications, incoming signals to our nervous system are changed in a matter of hours to in fact, sense more pain than before. The persistence of sympathetic stress pathways from both the pain, and the medications used to treat them, results in a significant imbalance in electrical activity throughout the Mind-Body. Once the Brain and Nervous System are calmed and returned to a Baseline, the Body AND Mind are much less sensitive to incoming pain signals and widespread bodily pain.
