This podcast is a relatively new addition to Curable's free content and like much of the educational content I post here, it is based on the premise that pain starts in the brain, not the body. Effectively using real-life chronic pain patients' stories, the episodes illustrate the effectiveness of the latest mind-body techniques to help listeners understand and overcome chronic conditions.
Hosted by psychotherapist Alan Gordon, LCSW (founder of the Pain Psychology Center in Los Angeles) and Alon Ziv (author and neuroscientist), each episode focuses on specific cases and sparks fascinating discussion on topics related to each patient's diagnosis and treatment using Gordon’s Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) techniques.
Despite each case being different in nature, their collective patterns are clear: the brain causes physical pain through learned neural pathways. Alan and Alon refer to TMS frequently as 'neuroplastic pain' or sometimes 'psychogenic pain' but the principle is exactly the same as TMS...pain caused by the brain, not a physical structural abnormality.
As you listen to each person's story, whether here or in other case study resources, you will start to notice patterns. When it comes to the fears, doubts and struggles around pain, we all suffer in a very similar way emotionally, even though our physical manifestations of TMS can be very different.
Hear powerful case study stories, where patients recover completely from seemingly incurable problems, avoiding risky surgeries and unnecessary medications.
