Damage to the spinal cord can also create various states of pain. Spinal cord injury nerve pain can be the result of inflammation in the area of injury or be the result of mis-directed signaling to the area of the brain controlling pain. Using the Neuro-Acupuncture technique, inflamed areas are reduced by increasing circulation. Pain signals from mis-directed communications in the brain can be re-routed to obtain a more normal and less painful state of sensation.
