Scrambling the Brain to Relieve the Pain

Written By: Brenda (B.K.) Walker

How many times have you been told that your pain is all in your head? Turns out, the brain may be the answer to relieving the pain for many patients with cancer. For decades, clinicians have recognized the residual damage rigorous chemotherapy treatment causes patients. They may have survived the cancer, but the chemo leaves its own destruction behind, often in the form of peripheral neuropathy.

According to Mayo Clinic's Dr. Charles Loprinzi, "It's a major problem from a number of chemotherapy drugs, probably the most prominent problem we have these days. For some it limits the amount of chemotherapy we can give and for some that get the chemotherapy it gets better afterwards, but for some it stays there and can be a persistent problem for years."

A recent report provides information regarding new research of a device that "scrambles" the signals the brain is sending in an effort to reduce the chronic pain resulting from various chemotherapy treatments.
