No. Chronic pain can be excruciating, and it results from real physical changes that are taking place in the body. There is nothing "imaginary" about the pain that is taking place. Pain can often start after a physical injury that causes tissue damage, but as time passes and the tissue heals, the pain may stay. Oftentimes, diagnostic testing offers inconclusive results for what is causing someone's chronic pain. In the absence of obvious structural tissue damage, the pain is usually a result of physiological changes in the body (changes in muscle tension, blood flow, oxygen levels, etc.).
These physiological changes, though they may not show up in an x-ray or MRI, can be completely disabling. That's because the cause is not located where the pain is felt, but rather in the firing of pain signals from the brain, which controls all physiological changes in the body. As one famous pain researcher says: “Pain does not exist until the brain says it does.” The good news, however, is that physiological changes in the body can be reversible through the techniques Curable delivers.
