Rewiring Neural Pathways: Harnessing Neuroplasticity To Overcome Chronic Pain

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Neuroplasticity refers to the brain’s ability to structurally and functionally change and adapt over time by reorganising neural pathways and connections. This plasticity is believed to play a key role in learning new skills, developing habits, and recovering from injuries. 

Research shows that the brain can form new circuits and alter existing ones in response to experiences, behaviours, emotions, and thoughts. Neural networks rewire based on repetitive patterns of activity. This is relevant for chronic pain, as maladaptive plastic changes can cause hypersensitised pain perception even after the initial injury heals. 

The brain’s neuroplastic capacity means neural patterns sustaining chronic pain can be reshaped with targeted interventions. Approaches like meditation, cognitive behavioural therapy, neurofeedback training, and graded motor imagery leverage plasticity mechanisms to help retrain the brain’s processing of pain signals. With conscious practise, the neural networks underpinning the experience of pain can be restructured over time.
