Finding the Missing Link to Chronic Pain

Maggie Phillips On The Levels Of Unreleased Trauma

Pain is usually associated with a currently existing physical injury, which makes helping clients who suffer from chronic pain especially challenging. Oftentimes, the source of their pain isn’t physical, or it’s an injury that occurred so long ago that it should no longer be hurting them. So where’s the connection to the pain they’re feeling now?

Maggie Phillips—author of Reversing Chronic Pain—has identified the missing link as unreleased trauma. When the body holds onto a trauma from the past—physical or not—it causes localized pain problems. Maggie believes that there are four levels of unreleased trauma that apply to chronic pain.

Watch the clip below from Maggie’s session in our webcast series, Is Attachment the Problem?, to hear her describe these four levels and how attachment issues can play a big part in unreleased trauma.

This is just one aspect of attachment-based issues that is covered in this series.
