Pain “ALL In The Brain”?: The Dangerous Oversimplification of Pain Science

The medical system focuses on the mechanical model of pain despite copious amounts of evidence pointing to the involvement of the brain. But these advancements in pain science have caused this huge pendulum wing to the opposite extreme, where claims are being made that ALL pain is ALL in the brain.

This is a HUGE jump from one extreme to another and both viewpoints are dangerous oversimplifications of the pain experience.

In this episode, we’re discussing the complex nature of pain and how it's not just a physical sensation OR purely a psychological experience and the need for a multifactorial approach, integrating physical, mind-body, and neurological approaches.
