Connection Between Your Brain and Your Back Pain

By the time they’re referred to a spine surgeon, many patients have run the gamut of treatments.  Yet, some have no clear spinal structural problem.  Their imaging and neurologic test are normal.  Even so, the brain is perceiving the pain.

Does Pain Have an Emotional Quality?

Treatments aimed at changing how the brain perceives pain are often more helpful for this subset of patients and include cognitive behavioral therapy and biofeedback.
