Did you know that pain is experienced differently by everyone?
In this episode of the Align podcast, Garrett and I chat about why an MRI scan may not show physicians and therapists everything they need to know about the source of chronic pain many patients experience. In fact, the psychological stressors we have within us could be just as much the culprit as something being physically and structurally wrong in the body. Garrett also explains how pain is something that is subjective and is tolerated differently by everyone, as we all separate psychological pain from physical pain differently.
Garrett Salpeter combined training in neuroscience and engineering to start NeuFit, a company at the nexus of neurology and fitness, dedicated to treating athletes and patients in the realization of fitness goals, effective rehabilitation, and improved overall health.
