There is no single area in the brain responsible for processing pain. There are several regions that contribute to the individual experience of pain: Motor Cortex (organization of movement), Cingulate (concentration), Prefrontal (memory), Amygdala (fear), Hypothalamus (stress, motivation), among others.

Similar to Hastag in social networks, a NeuroTag represents a mechanism for “organizing” / “grouping” the information of a given injury, functioning as a database so that, in a second event, the protection response is faster - and many times more painful, even if the injury was less severe.

Pain in the athlete/dancer can be a limiting factor for their performance.
Therefore, the intervention in rehabilitation should present a broader view than just focusing on the recovery of tissues/physical structure. The mechanisms adjacent to the Bio-psycho-social model should also be explored.

The amount of pain we feel is therefore proportional to the threat perceived by the brain rather than the magnitude of the damage to the physical structure (Melzack, et al. 1995)
