The Brain and Gut Role in Chronic Pain Relief

Posted by Dr. Karl R.O.S. Johnson, DC on Wed, Jun 13, 2018

Too Many People Are Hurting And I Want to Help

People dealing with chronic pain are everywhere. We are seeing both children and adults dealing with more and more headaches, back pain, neck pain, joint pain and pain syndromes. Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists longer than six months. Long term pain is often accompanied by other symptoms. These symptoms can include poor sleep, poor emotional control, depression, anxiety, fatigue and burnout.

It is important to not just cover up the symptoms of chronic pain. There is no doubt that drugs that reduce or relieve pain can help people deal with the pain. It is important not to rely on the drugs in the long term. There are major side effects with many of these medications. The CDC recently reported that deaths from prescription opioids have more than quadrupled since 1999. It is important for people to know a non-drug option exists for chronic pain.

The Brain and Gut Connection To Chronic Pain

We often find an over-firing cortex (upper brain) and limbic system (lower brain) in chronic pain cases. We can often correct this with advanced neurofeedback, brain rehab exercises and nutrition. Neurofeedback is a computerized workout for the brain. There often is an underlying inflammatory issue as well. Long term inflammation can drive the pain. We can often correct this with nutrition and dealing with gut health.

One of the first steps in finding the cause of chronic pain is a case review,  brain map and neurological exam. Brain maps are a 20-30 minute, noninvasive, computerized, EEG analysis of brain function. Maps allow us to find if there is a neurological reason behind the symptoms and provide direction as to what area of the brain to strengthen or balance. We have used this technology for over a decade with great success. For more information or to schedule a brain map, contact us at Michigan Brain Health. We are located in Shelby Township, MI.
