Stop managing chronic pain, you can TREAT it!

Brain Changer’s 12-week pain recovery program has been developed from the latest science and clinical practice guidelines in pain neuroscience, education, movement science, behavioral health and psychologically-informed care.

But Brain Changer wasn’t developed in a research lab or a clinic. It was created by a person living with pain who was curious and committed to getting her life back. Tina McIntosh created the digital self-management system that put science into practice for her to recover from over ten years of chronic neck and arm pain.

Chronic Spinal Pain
Back and neck pain affects 80% of people at some time in their life.

Not all spinal pain creates life-altering disability that people with ongoing pain experience. Spinal pain is scary when you’ve been told you’re badly damaged, that your spine is weak and that you can’t do much about it.

The reasons that you have been given for why you have this pain, and what you can do about it, are probably inaccurate.

Modern evidence-based pain care shows that treating, not managing, chronic pain is possible with the right combination of brain, body and social influences. Change your brain to change your pain.
Unhealed Injuries
You might have had an injury a long time ago that still hurts.

Once you reach 6-12 weeks after an injury, healing has happened!

Healing is one of the most reliable processes in your body, unlike pain. Pain can persist long after healing.

Continuing to rest and protect a painful joint from movement puts you in a downward spiral of loss of strength and increased sensitivity.

Learning about pain, and the many things that can influence it – and then applying that to movement and activities help retrain your brain to decrease pain.
Arthritis and Joint Pain
Arthritis means pain that can’t change? Not true!

Modern scientific understandings about pain give you a far more hopeful prognosis for an active future without surgery and ongoing pain medications.

Structural changes don’t determine pain (although of course they can have some impact)

Many people who get strong and feel positive doing exercise before surgery end up cancelling their operations. Learn about pain, apply it to movement training and fit it into your meaningful life for a surgery-free way to treat your pain.
Whole Body Pain
Everything hurts? You can’t get out of bed? Your brain and thoughts feel fuzzy? Getting out of bed feels like you’re running a marathon every day?

Symptoms like this are hard to explain medically, but sadly common and disabling.

You might have a label “chronic fatigue syndrome” or “fibromyalgia” that sounds like a diagnosis. They tell you that you have sensitive protective systems (for many reasons!) and you need to understand them and take a comprehensive approach to your rehab.

Small daily actions, lives changed...

Brain Changer is a truly amazing tool that I have been using with my pain management clients for some 6 months. It has assisted greatly in the application of pain management principles, which some clients struggle to implement into everyday life. The notion of Brain Changer being the ‘hand-rail’ for people to use as they regain control over their pain is one of the key features. There is also a huge focus on the importance of safety, confidence and repetition, which is what the brain needs to reprogram itself from chronic pain.
