    The role that STRESS plays - and the creation of learned nerve pathways – (9:00 minutes) Youtube Video by Dr. Howard Schubiner Explaining chronic pain:

    Based on Dr. Howard Schubiner MD's book - 'Unlearn your pain'

    Summary: Dr. Howard Schubiner MD discusses how chronic pain can be devastating, but that it is often not what it seems. Pain can be caused by tissue damage, however many people with chronic pain have no tissue damage. Their pain is caused by learned nerve pathways which are explained in this video. Stress and emotional reactions to stressful life events can produce nerve pathways of pain, fatigue, insomnia, anxiety and depression. Learned nerve pathways can be reversed as described in this video.
