Dr. Shaheen Lakhan, MD
Lin Medical Advisor
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
Amazing program. Doors are opening and I am learning lots of new stuff every day. My coach is wonderful and supportive.
My concerns, honestly, come from looking at Curable and seeing that they suggest journaling and a few other elements which I think should be addressed in your initial introduction. I don't know if you are pro journaling or not.
Lin Health Gives Power to the Powerless
Lin Health teaches those who feel powerless, at their most vulnerable point how powerful they really are. Your brain is a powerful organ...it can make you feel sick and it can make you feel well.
I signed up for Lin for a month - already so much better!
I signed up for Lin for a month. I was really skeptical but I’ve spent ore on stuff that hasn’t worked for my fibromyalgia. Not a day went by that I didn’t have at least a constant pain...
I am grateful for Lin Health and all I…
I am grateful for Lin Health and all I have learned from one on one coaching and the tools provided in the app. My pain went from a 9-10 to a 1-2 in about 6 months. The tools have been life-changing and the new mindset is a growing work in progress. Give it a try, I can't say enough positive things about this experience.
A game changer
Lin is providing such an important resource for people with chronic pain. It helped to give me hope again. My coach was amazing, the tools were super helpful. I can't say enough good things about it. If you are struggling with chronic pain, give this a try. You won't be disappointed.
Thank you Lin!
My entire experience with Lin was so helpful! It was easy to navigate and full of information. I will definitely recommend Lin to anyone needing support! Thank you Lin!
Remarkable Healing Experience
I can’t say enough about my experience 👍 I worked with Hunter… he was most helpful & compassionate. I had TMS several years ago related to lower spine displacement. For me: Pain…. Is a telephone that won’t stop ringing until I stop & address my internal dis-ease. Recovery is a multifactorial process of letting go & building a strong-healthy mind-body-spirit 🌷
My coach has been extremely insightful and supportive. The learning materials are also key to changing your mindset and rewiring your brain. I appreciate Lin Health so much!

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.
