Who is Pathways for?

For when the pain just doesn’t go away

3 Months +

Pain that lasts more than 3 months – and often many years – is known as chronic or persistent pain. Persistent pain is very different to ‘normal’ acute pain and that needs to be reflected in how we treat it

No Obvious Treatment

Perhaps treatment provides little or temporary relief. Maybe you’ve received contradictory diagnoses. And despite all your efforts, pain just doesn't go away

Strange Pain

Has pain outlasted the normal healing period? Does pain change with your mood or environment? Perhaps your pain migrates from place to place?

Science Behind Pathways

A few of the scientific studies that support our techniques:

Recent Research

2017Research by the University of Utah published in the Journal of General Internal Medicine concluded: “After participating in a single, 15-minute session of certain mind-body therapies, patients reported an immediate decrease in pain levels similar to what one might expect from an opioid painkiller.”

2015 A 2015 study from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine resulted in this conclusion: “A mind-body program for chronic LBP [lower back pain] improved short-term function and long-term current and most severe pain…”

20112011 research titled “Pain and Emotion: A Biopsychosocial Review of Recent Research” concluded that “Emotions are integral to the conceptualization, assessment, and treatment of persistent pain…”

Pre-2010 Research

2010The 2010 study by Howard Schubiner, MD at the Department of Internal Medicine, found that: “The affective self-awareness intervention improved pain, tenderness, and self-reported physical function for at least 6 months in women with fibromyalgia compared to wait-list control."

2010 The Department of Neurology in the Oregon Health & Science University published a study in 2010 stating, “The desire of patients to engage in mind–body techniques as an additional therapy to more conventional treatments needs to be recognized”

2009The Department of Psychology at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte conducted a study in 2009 on the effect of brief mindfulness meditation on pain and concluded with: “Our findings indicate that a brief 3-day mindfulness meditation intervention was effective at reducing pain ratings and anxiety scores when compared with baseline testing and other cognitive manipulations”

Even More

2007A study led by David Schechter, MD, in 2007 concluded with this: “We believe that a mind-­body approach is more effective and involves much less risk and expense than conventional approaches in appropriately diagnosed cases.”

2004 A 2004 study by John A Astin, PhD recommended that: “Based on the evidence reviewed here, the adjunctive use of MBTs [Mind-Body Therapies] should be considered in the treatment of health-related problems that include pain as a major component.”

2003A clinical review in 2003 titled ‘Mind-Body Medicine: State of the Science, Implications for Practice’ concluded with: “There is now considerable evidence that an array of mind-body therapies can be used as effective adjuncts to conventional medical treatment for a number of common clinical conditions.”

2002 A 2002 study from the Royal National Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases and University of Bath concluded: “Current BT-CBT helps many patients with chronic pain…”
