Pain resulting from functional changes as opposed to structural damage.
‘Non-specific’ pain involves an experience of pain that cannot be attributed to a clear structural cause. It is more complex in nature than 'specific' pain, and often involves dynamic changes within your nervous and immune system.
Solving non-specific back pain requires that we look beyond 'anatomy' – your physical body structure – and towards 'physiology' – how your body actually functions.
Our treatment approach
Non-specific pain requires a holistic, multidisciplinary treatment approach. This often includes a combination of physical rehabilitation, medical support, lifestyle interventions and neuroplasticity therapies.
Neuroplasticity based therapies are particularly effective for non-specific pain conditions. They work by reprogramming the brain’s pain pathways – effectively ‘teaching’ your brain to produce less pain.
