About this Episode:
A conversation with Dr. Howard Schubiner on the latest neuroscience approaches to understanding and treating chronic pain. Dr. Schubiner’s Mind Body Program emphasizes the way the unconscious brain and neural pathways (versus structural abnormalities) are the cause of most chronic pain and require a different approach to treatment than standard pharmacological and/or pain psychology frameworks.
Dr. Schubiner is the founder and director of the Mind Body Medicine Program at Providence Hospital. This program uses the most current research methodologies to treat individuals who suffer from the Mind Body Syndrome (MBS) or Tension Myositis Syndrome (TMS) as described by Dr. John Sarno. Dr. Schubiner has created a program that uses both meditative and cutting edge psychological techniques to help individuals with chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia, whiplash, back and neck pain, myofascial pain, TMJ syndrome, tension and migraine headaches, irritable bowel syndrome, irritable bladder syndrome, insomnia, anxiety, and other related conditions. He is currently performing the first randomized, controlled research study in the field of Mind Body Syndrome or TMS for individuals diagnosed with fibromyalgia. He was included in the 2003-2004, 2005-2006 and 2007-2008 lists of the Best Doctors in America. Dr. Schubiner lives in the Detroit area with his wife of 25 years and has 2 children in their early 20’s.
