Neuroplastic Pain: Refers to pain cause by OR pain increased because of changes within the nervous system. These structural and functional changes can occur at every level of the nervous system.
Neuroplasticity: refers to the ability of the nervous system to alter its structure and function. Neuroplasticity (also deals with brain plasticity, cortical plasticity and cortical re-mapping) refers to changes that occur in the organization of the brain and entire nervous system as a result of experiences. "Plasticity" relates to the learning by adding or removing connections, or cells.
Neuroplastic changes related to pain can occur at multiple levels of the nervous system. More pain receptors may be in an area, the area of the brain that feels pain increases, the pain sensory system becomes more efficient, and the brain can learn pain.
"Neuroplasticity can make it easier for you to feel tissue damage (acute) pain."
