Pain is not what we were taught. The Blatman 5 Rules for Understanding and Treating Pain provide a template for a new paradigm that can be used to treat and reduce pain in all age groups. Headaches do not come from the head, and not the blood vessels or the nerves. Pelvic pain does not generally come from the pudendal nerve, and phantom limb pain is not central. In this talk, DrB shares the 5 Rules and illustrates a modern understanding of injury and fascial anatomy in a manner that makes sense and helps complete what you already know. More than 30 years of practice and research have resulted in expertise that can put in perspective the benefits and limitations of (when within scope) dry needling, myofascial release, trigger point injections, prolotherapy, prolozone, Platelet rich plasma, peptides, stem cells, and vSELS.
