Chronic pain is one of the most costly and difficult conditions to treat and traditional medicine fails to provide effective relief. The resolution of chronic pain can be best understood and resolved using the evolutionary neurophysiological framework of the polyvagal theory based on systemic brain-body responses to safety and threat. To heal chronic pain, safety is needed in order to promote health, growth and restoration of the nervous system.
