Session 2.  Retraining the pain systems. Start here…


Key themes today:

  • Bioplasticity got you into this mess. Bioplasticity can get you out again.
  • MANY different things can make our pain go up or down, these things are not always obvious. 
  • To address the different contributors to your pain, you must first identify them. “Know who’s sinking your boat!”


What other key information do we want you to take away from today?

  • Tools like The Protectometer handbook can help to identify ‘hard to find’ factors in your pain. See the example on the next page. 
  • Think about your pain and what’s contributing. Are there contributors that need to be addressed that perhaps haven’t been?
  • Fears, concerns or worries will always be a factor (large or small) in pain. Discuss these concerns with the right person – many myths exist that feed certain worries.  Unfortunately, many are perpetuated by health professionals.  Examples of common myths:


  • ‘Correct Posture’
  • ‘Tighten the Core’
  • Scan findings will always explain your pain.
  • ‘Slipped’ discs, and spines ‘out of place’.


Upcoming sessions will continue to explore different contributors to pain, and give practical examples of how to tackle many of these issues.
