Brain-based treatment approaches are the evidence-based recommendation for primary pain conditions

Breakthroughs in pain science have led to a whole new way of understanding and treating chronic pain. A brain-based treatment approach has been clinically proven to be highly effective in treating primary pain conditions.

  • While all pain, ultimately, is mediated by the brain, primary pain is pain that is out of proportion to medical findings. This is a very common condition. In the newest medical codes (ICD-11), many chronic pain conditions have been reclassified as a type of primary pain.

  • Because in primary chronic pain conditions the pain signaling system is over-firing, a brain-based approach that addresses cognitive, emotional, and behavioral patterns allows us to train our brain to change our experience of pain, and in many cases, reverse it completely.

Our approach is proven to work

In a recent study of chronic low back pain, 98% of people reduced their pain and 66% were pain free at the end of treatment when treated with a brain-first approach (Pain Reprocessing Therapy). [Read]

In another series of studies, a different brain-first treatment (Emotional Awareness and Expression Therapy) has been shown to reduce pain levels in patients with chronic pelvic pain, fibromyalgia and medically unexplained symptoms. [Read]

59% of patients who join Lin with medium-to-high pain reduce their pain to low or no pain after six months. And only 1 in 10 patients still regularly experiences high levels of pain.

Real people, real relief

Our approach

The Lin approach is clinically proven to help people recover from chronic pain.

The core pillars of our care model include:

1. Understanding pain and recovery

Reducing pain starts with pain neuroscience education and self-awareness.

2. Shifting cognitive and behavioral patterns

Learn to respond differently to pain through somatic tracking techniques, tools for addressing pain flare-ups, and shifting your avoidance behaviors.

3. Addressing pain triggers

Learn to regulate your nervous system as well as emotions, stress, and thought patterns to promote healing.

4. Replacing pain with the good life

Learn to move safely and confidently again. Cultivate a positive orientation, build resilience, and implement tools for self-care.

5. Empowering people

Make informed and judicious use of medication, imaging, and interventional approaches to pain management.


While we work with many patients taking medications for their pain, Lin Health does not prescribe controlled substances, including opioids.

We will partner with your current providers if a change in medications could be helpful to you.
