Dr. John Sarno
Visionary Healer on Pain Relief Method
From the Wikipedia entry for the late Dr. John Sarno … “Sarno’s most notable achievement is the development, diagnosis, and treatment of tension myoneural syndrome (TMS), which is currently not accepted by mainstream medicine. According to Sarno, TMS is a psychosomatic illness causing chronic back, neck, and limb pain which is not relieved by standard medical treatments. …
“He includes other ailments, such as gastrointestinal problems, dermatological disorders and repetitive-strain injuries as TMS related. Sarno states that he has successfully treated over ten thousand patients at the Rusk Institute by educating them on his beliefs of a psychological and emotional basis to their pain and symptoms. Sarno’s theory is, in part, that the pain or GI symptoms are an unconscious “distraction” to aid in the repression of deep unconscious emotional issues. …” (emphasis added)
Further quoting Wikipedia …
“Sarno originated the term tension myositis syndrome (TMS) to name a psychosomatic condition producing pain, particularly back pain. The theory of TMS and Sarno’s treatment of it have been hailed by many lay people as life-changing. A 2017 book on back pain treatments described Sarno as the “rock star of the back world”. A documentary on his life and work titled All the Rage (Saved by Sarno) was released in 2016.”
A useful and important distinction Dr John Sarno developed was when he changed his diagnosis from Tension Myositis Syndrome to Tension Myoneural Syndrome.
He originally thought the muscle (myo-) pain was from inflammation. When he realized there was little of no evidence that inflammation was present in such conditions, he renamed the syndrome from Myo-SITIS (-sitis meaning inflammation) to Myo-NEURAL, having to do with the nerves.
