Is pain in the head? Finding pain flare up at random times? Curious about current perspectives on pain? "Pain is an experience and perception," says Dr. Kyle, co-founder of Integrated Kinetic Neurology. Dr. Kyle unpacks the truths around pain and deciphers the mechanisms behind how the pain experience is elicited. With an emphasis on survival and protection, Dr. Kyle discusses 2 reasons why revisiting pain may occur and how they may relate to stress, and the concept of the path of least resistance. Then, he provides his insights on the dichotomy between pain from the body versus pain from the brain. In doing so, he explains how pain perception may be molded by stress threshold and 2 ways to address it. Moreover, Dr. Kyle provides 2 ways to build resilience in the nervous system, speaking to the power of breathing and novel movements. He shares his go-to breathwork activity and why breathing may be your first line to saving your pain, through integrated understandings between neurology & and biochemistry, He briefly discusses hyperventilation, the importance of nasal breathing, the role neural tricks play in rehabbing chronicity, and how to create lasting change within the nervous system. Finally, he addresses the role tools can play in optimizing an individual's rehabilitation journey and the role touch plays in the brain's internal map of the body.
