Back and Neck Pain

Transforming Negativity Through Mindful Inner Work, Part V

Author| Barry Kerzin, MD

From the Dalai Lama's personal physician

Regarding the emotional component of chronic pain, it is important to work on combating negativity, cynicism, doubt, and suspicion. This type of inner work often gets to the root of our pain and suffering.

It is hard work that requires courage, courage to “see our stuff” and not run away from it.

This requires looking inward to see the inner landscape of our thoughts and emotions. Thus when we find negativity, to first recognize it and not run away from it. Secondly, we start to work with the negativity in order to transform it into its positive counterpart. Let’s start by looking at forgiveness.

After 13 years of debilitating back pain, I am living proof that The Pain Project method for chronic pain really works. I've never felt better.

I suffered from recurrent, severe headaches ever since law school. My Pain Project therapist helped get me back in control of my headaches and most importantly my life.

After a sports injury, I had back surgery which did not help me and in some ways made me worse. The Pain Project was the only thing that cured my back pain.

I was actually scheduled and pre-oped for surgery when a friend referred me to The Pain Project. After my first session I quickly improved and subsequently cancelled my surgery and it was the best decision I have ever made.

I had horrific neck and shoulder pain for years and had tried pills and steroid injections several times without relief. After my Pain Project therapist helped me change how I thought about my pain and overcome my fear, I improved immensely. Now I can definitely manage my own pain, my way.

-Mark - Portland, OR

I used to wake up every day wondering, "How much knee pain will I have today?" The Pain Project tele-therapy allowed me to unlearn my chronic knee pain from the convenience of my home. If you have long term pain, I highly recommend you try The Pain Project before any other unproven treatments or procedures.
