I’m wondering if he is experiencing Centralization.
I am traveling abroad at the moment and missed this post. In my opinion based on what you are describing that is exactly what your patient is experiencing. Pain centralization is a normal part of the healing process and should encourage your patient that he is going in the right direction. At least that has been my experience.
I will be gone until the 19th, training fellow doctors in Singapore and Dubai on spinal decompression with the Hill DT table. The world is catching on that we have a great tool to assist them with their patients and they are eager to implement the use of the table. I will update you all when I get back.
