What is Pain Reprocessing Therapy?
When we experience pain, we need to do two things: find out what is causing it and find out how to stop it. Pain Reprocessing Therapy (PRT) covers both.
It can often feel like we have pain all over our bodies and that the pain we experience must be coming from exactly that place where it hurts. However, it isn’t that simple – pain is an add-on feature that our brains create to alert us to any threats we experience, including ones from our work, relationships, and the world inside and outside our heads. PRT is an exciting new development in the treatment of pain because it addresses the pain right where it starts – in the brain! PRT turns down the pain alarm and, with some practice, turns it off altogether.
A randomised controlled study has shown that the majority of people undergoing Pain Reprocessing Therapy to treat back pain experienced almost zero pain after their course of this therapy. Caroline is also seeing significant pain reduction among her patients, some of whom have lived with pain for many years.
