Summary of this content:

Research around chronic pain has found that cognitive and behavioural factors play a major role in the development and treatment of chronic pain. Furthermore, research has shown that there is substantial cortical reorganisation in patients with chronic pain. These findings affect our understanding of pain and the treatment of chronic pain. This article examines the cortical reorganisation that occurs during chronic pain as well as the treatment modalities that target cortical representation.
