Persistent Pain as a Sensory Processing impairment

Persistent Pain as a Sensory Processing impairment

Sensory processing is the reconciliation of information coming in from the periphery on the brain’s internal model of the world and self. Perception is the ascribed meaning about the sensation, the environment, the person, and context. The lack of awareness of neuroplasticity and sensory processing in regards to the experience of pain, is extremely problematic for patients in their interactions with healthcare providers and navigation of health systems.
