Overcoming Persistent Pain: Healing the Body by Healing the Mind Pain seems to be conscious and cognitive. Persisting pain is related to changes in the physical body and neuro-plastic changes in the nervous system. The “danger button” is constantly activated. Pain changes us in many ways. There are equally many ways to change it back. Develop skills to keep your body, breath and mind calm. Put evidence-based pain self-care processes in your pain care toolkit. There is hope for finding more peace and ease.
