Treat Chronic Health Ailments using a Brain and Nervous System Approach

Welcome to The Pain PT

Most chronic pain practices offer a Pain ‘Management’ program.

I offer a Chronic Pain and Chronic Health ‘Solution’ program.

Why manage chronic symptoms forever when you can start to solve them now?

The key is getting to the underlying source of the symptoms.

The source lies in the signaling of the brain and nerve pathways, while the symptoms lie in the body.

There is now a lot of science supporting the role of the brain in chronic pain and other chronic health issues.

The brain is neuro-plastic and can change, so it’s possible to reverse these long-standing conditions.

Treat the source and you can solve the problem.
