Can You Turn Off Chronic Pain?

Yes! You Can Now Turn Off Chronic Pain, and Here’s the Proof!


There are a growing number of physicians and scientists who recognise that it is actually possible to turn off chronic pain.

But forget medication, physical therapy, or the usual psychological approaches that are rampant in the chronic pain industry. We already know that those strategies are no better than placebo!

Clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of treatments for patients with chronic pain.

CONCLUSIONS of this meta analysis:

There are limitations to the success of all the available treatments … None of the currently available treatments eliminates pain for the majority of patients … none of them appear capable of eliminating pain or significantly improving functional outcomes for all treated.


So What Is the Latest Research Saying?


Our groundbreaking clinical research in the year 2000 showed conclusively that chronic pain could be switched off by treating it in an entirely different way – as if the pain signalling were merely sets of conditioned responses.

Since that time, Dr Yves De Koninck, Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience, is just one of a growing number of researcher/physicians who have seen that chronic pain is exactly like emotional pain, sharing exactly the same nerve paths and brain regions.

Chronic pain signalling is nothing like acute pain from injury, and that is why current approaches appear to do so little to help.

Dr Koninck, who is about to be formerly recognised by the Canadian Pain Society with a Distinguished Career Award (May 2017) has shown that by specifically interrupting perception of chronic pain (a process he calls “recall and erase”) the pain can be effectively and permanently turned off.

There is just one problem.

Dr Koninck believes that the way to interrupt the perception of the pain is to deliver a particular drug to the brain, and his work is supported by studies done by hundreds of researchers around the world.

Why do we describe this as a problem? Because there are non-drug, non-invasive ways to “recall and erase” pain perception, and we have been using and refining this process for nearly 20 years.


The Key to Turning Off Chronic Pain


The “recall” part of dealing with this problem is not simple, and any therapist who wants to work with chronic pain needs to understand that what we are doing is exploring and identifying specific conditioned responses around pain production. These include but are not limited to:

  • Specific sensory awareness of the pain
  • Metaphors that are associated with the pain
  • Beliefs around the pain
  • Meaning of the pain
  • Emotions around the pain

And in addition we need to be aware that the nervous system itself may be in a hyper-sensitive state and that also needs to be identified and addressed.

The “erase” part of turning off the chronic pain signalling appears deceptively easy. We use the patient’s specific language to trigger at least two very different sets of conditioned responses simultaneously, and add further neurological complexity by adding sensory stimulation to the process.


What Happens During Treatment?


While some people will notice no or little change immediately, most patients will experience significant relief and even total elimination of their pain almost immediately.

This is not to say that this is the end of treatment because although spectacularly exciting, this is not a magic wand. For most people, the brain needs to practice switching off pain, for a few minutes each day, over days or weeks, in order to be able to stop treatment and enjoy permanent pain relief.

In between treatment sessions, the patient becomes more skilled at recognising the conditioning at play, and in applying the treatment themselves. A free support group helps them to keep on track.

Ebook - The New MDR Treatment for Chronic Pain

  • MDR is an acronym for "Multi-sensory Disruption of Reconsolidation of conditioned responses". It is thoroughly backed by the most up-to-date clinical research, which provides evidence that chronic pain is completely different from acute pain, is no longer related to the original injury or problem, and is now generated by conditioned activity in the brain itself, and that this conditioned activity can be very quickly and permanently stopped, the pain along with it. . That may sound complicated but in practice, with expert guidance, it is actually very easy to learn and master. This is why our focus is on teaching people to self treat. . Most people who come to see us for treatment for chronic pain discover that they can get relief extremely rapidly, and can often eliminate their pain altogether. ... However, that is NOT to say that this is all that is required! Even where we can eliminate the pain altogether at this early stage, it's important to realise that there is generally much more to total freedom from chronic pain than that. Your nervous system needs to experience the shut down of pain signalling for a critical number of triggers which are usually at play. . Typically, as explained in this book, there will be a myriad of triggers to that pain which need to be investigated and eliminated, using the MDR treatment approach described in this book, as well as other MDR approaches which may be more appropriate. . This book will give you an understanding of the basic MDR treatment, and enable you to use the very same approach that we use for every client's first session, in the hope that you too will experience fast relief.
