Traditional approach to explaining and treating pain is based on a structural model, meaning that the site of pain is treated with the goal of eliminating symptoms and helping the local tissue heal. A good example of this would be putting a cast on a broken arm. The problem with this model is that when it comes to chronic problems it fails to make sense or rather it cannot make sense in most cases. We know that most soft tissues heal and the time frame for that is usually about 8-12 weeks. So a twisted ankle that is still "acting up" several years after the accident is likely not due to the original injury. Now it's important to state that I am not in anyway suggesting a psychological cause for pain, not at all. The pain is very real and has a physical cause, it's just no longer the ankle. Of course the question is what is the cause? The simple answer is the nervous system.
So right away, almost within 5 minutes of posting this video on You Tube someone wrote that they have 2 discs crushing the sciatic nerve so , "it's structural!". My answer is, yes. Look I understand but remember nerves are structures as well. I am not saying that your pain in all in your head (well actually it is all in your head, more on that later) but in addition to fixing the damaged tissues you must reset the nervous system. Why do only 40% of people who have back surgery report still having pain when "structurally" the disc has been completely removed (as an example) or an even better example is in the case of spinal stenosis, the surgery removes the bony compression on the spinal cord... but the pain and dysfunction remains. Using treatments like PEMF, HAKO MED and CLASS 4 LASER we can make dramatic changes in these people lives.
