Information for Rehabilitation Professionals

“The therapy is not working, my pain is still a 8 out of 10!” It is only Wednesday, and you swear you have heard this a dozen times this week. You know this patient and others like them all have a chronic pain problem. You have attempted pain neuroscience education but it’s not getting through. You don’t have the time required to provide this education at the level required to facilitate patient buy-in that breaks the chronic pain-fear cycle.

Refer your patients for Pain Reprocessing Therapy.

Pain Reprocessing Therapy Overview 

Pain Reprocessing Therapy is a collection of psychological techniques that breaks the cycle of chronic pain by focusing on treating pain rather than managing it.

Key Points

  •  It is a new generation psychological technique

  •  It is entirely different than Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) or Acceptance and Commitment Therapy

  •  It uses a 3-pronged approach:

1. Brain-based cause for chronic pain

2. Curing pain is the goal, not managing it

3. Addresses emotional threats

  •  Evidence based and supported by a large, randomized control trial

98% response rate

66% were pain or nearly pain free

Results maintained over 12-month follow-up
