Learn strategies that you can start using right away to decrease your pain.
Presented on March 29, 2022
25% of people live with persistent pain.
Many people don't realize that persistent pain is a result of neuroplastic changes to the brain and that we can change our brain's structure and function to recover.
In Know Pain, registered physiotherapist and teacher, Debbie Patterson, explains key concepts of pain science, with an emphasis on Neuroplasticity and will explain how to begin to rewire your brain to produce less pain. All persistent pain is caused by the brain (not the mind, the brain) and all types of persistent pain are reversible with neuroplastic strategies. Debbie discusses how.
