The Neuro-Psycho-Angio Basis of Endometriosis



The Neuro-Psycho-Angio Basis of Endometriosis

Endometriosis is a chronic condition with pain as the central symptom that persists despite treatment, and often despite improvement in general health and wellbeing. Pain processing, nociception, and underlying pain mechanisms of endometriosis have expanded in recent years.

Our understanding of endometriosis has progressed beyond the bacterial hypothesis, hormonal interplay, hormonal resistance, and suspected immunological drivers of the condition. We now know that there exists a fundamental neurological and neuropathic difference in these individuals. People with endometriosis present with neurocircuitry, emotional processing, and psychology that is uniquely specific.

Ectopic endometriotic implants recruit their own unique neural and vascular supplies through neuro-angiogenesis which influence dorsal root neurons within the central nervous system increasing pain perception. We know that endometrial cells are present in all parts of the human body and in all people regardless of age or gender. Endometriosis cells are likely to be beyond the simplified model of the condition in current perception.

The bridge between neuroplasticity, the endocannabinoid system, inflammation, pain interpretation, neural patterning, and the methodology to repair these pain pathways need to be linked in translatable treatment approaches to support our patients.

In this informative educational presentation, Leah will review this new understanding of endometriosis and outline how we, as clinicians, can evolve our treatment and assessment of this condition beyond current approaches and address the complexity with holistic, directive, and strategic measures for the health of our patients now and into the future.
