Common Aggravating Symptoms

Stress – chronic stress is bad for health & your pain.

Tension – unconscious holding may aggravate pain.

Inflammation – an immune response which is part of healing, but can also greatly increase pain.

Trauma – triggers issues in your body/mind & aggravates pain.

Over Doing It – over loading your body can be a factor towards pain.

Weakness/Muscle turned off – with no muscle support your body can feel more at threat, and aggravate pain.

Not enough rest – no recovery for your body.

Physio can HELP you correct these aggravating issues 

Physiotherapy Definitions

Pain

Pain is not simple. It occurs when your brain senses DANGER in your body and ACTION is required. So pain acts as a PROTECTOMETER for you. Inflammation, stress, tension, anticipation of pain, low mood, and many other factors can affect your pain protectometer. This means pain is not a direct measure of body tissue damage, but rather a measure of danger & what your brain thinks about it ie an Xray can show joint damage, but you feel little pain ie low danger, or it can show minimal damage & you feel lots of pain if your brain feels danger. Pain can learn ie Chronic pain (pain for more than 3 months) is how the pain pathways & brain have changed to better express the pain signal.

The best way to deal with pain is to understand pain… Pain can be unlearnt but it takes time & work…

The brain has a powerful ability to dampen danger signals  – slow yoga breathing can be one way to activate this.

Bowen Therapy

A deeply relaxing HOLISTIC therapy, which restores balance to the nervous system, aids recovery & pain relief. It is s a gentle soft tissue release technique, with pauses between to aid nervous system processing.

Yoga Therapy

Using the holistic tools of yoga such as breathing, yoga postures, relaxation & meditation, mudra & mantra, to help you recover or better manage your condition. Yoga can be transforming as it works on body, mind & breath.

Exercise as Medicine

Exercise can improve mobility, strength, core, heart health, blood sugar, weight management, and mental well being. Movement is one of the best ways to reduce discomfort.  It is an essential part of good recovery or management of your condition.

Over Doing It

Doing too much, too soon, without enough recovery is a common cause of body pain – this is common in some work, sport, running & yoga.

Better self awareness & management, which you learn in yoga can help reduce this risk.

Being Sedentary & Sitting too Much

This is a major health risk, and a cause of weak core & body in general, especially as we get older. It can lead to back pain & body discomfort.

The SOLUTION is simple – MOVE MORE…
