A documentary about a massive neuroscience study that challenges the medical industry’s approach to chronic pain.
When therapist Alan Gordon suggests psychology as the cure for millions of pain sufferers, it garners the attention of Yoni Ashar, a doctoral student working in the lab of Dr. Tor Wager, who is willing to put Alan’s claims to the test.
PAIN BRAIN balances scientific breakthrough alongside intimate therapy sessions with patients as Alan attempts to cure patients with only words and information.
How successful the treatment is could catalyze a paradigm shift – from body to brain – amongst healthcare providers and patients.

Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown: Stop Chronic Pain
Alan Gordon stops by to guide Mayim through somatic tracking in an effort to alleviate her severe, stress-induced chronic back pain. After detailing his own journey suffering years of sustained pain in almost every area of his body, Alan highlights the benefits of pain as a danger signal and the importance of understanding the source of physiological symptoms in order to identify neuroplastic pain. Mayim and Alan break down the neuroscience behind the use of Pain Reprocessing Therapy to deactivate pain, the benefits of body scan meditation, and the relation between sensitivity to physical stimuli and experiencing strong emotional connections.

How To Heal Chronic Pain with Dr. Howard Schubiner
Emerging neuroscience tells us our brains actually create what we experience in our bodies, through a process called predictive processing. Pain doesn’t come from the body part where it’s felt, it’s created by our brain, signaling that something needs attention. And as Dr. Schubiner explains, our emotions and stress activate the same pain centers in our brain as an injury. The absolute key here: it’s not ‘all in your head’, your pain is real.

Unlearn Your Pain:
A 28 -Day Process to Reprogram Your Brain
Using cutting-edge research, this book demonstrates that the underlying reason for much chronic pain is brain sensitization and learned neural pathways, rather than actual tissue damage. Dr. Schubiner has used this new understanding to develop a unique program to reverse pain.

A Clinician’s Guide to Psychophysiologic Disorders
Using cutting edge psychotherapeutic and neurophysiologic principles, Dr. Schubiner and Dr. Abbass explain how the brain develops neural pathways that cause symptoms, such as headaches, irritable bowel and bladder syndrome, fibromyalgia, fatigue, insomnia, and chronic neck and back pain. They illustrate powerful, emotion-focused interviewing techniques to both detect and treat psychophysiologic disorders.
A Diagnostic Guide for Psychophysiologic Disorders
Did you know that one in six adults and 40% of primary care patients suffer from medically unexplained symptoms, chronic functional syndromes, or psychosocial factors responsible for chronic pain? As recent research has confirmed, a trauma-informed approach to diagnosis and treatment can transform these patients from among the most frustrating to the most rewarding and give them a far better chance for a full recovery.
Psychophysiologic Disorders Association
The Psychophysiologic Disorders Association aims to end the chronic pain epidemic and opioid crisis by advancing the awareness, diagnosis and treatment of neuroplastic symptoms that affect millions worldwide.
