Physiotherapy Definitions

Pain

 

Pain is complex. It occurs when your brain senses danger in your body and action is required. Stress, tension, anticipation of pain, low mood, and many other factors can affect your pain level. Pain is not a direct measure of body tissue damage ie an Xray can show joint damage & you may not experience pain if the brain feels no danger, and the opposite can also occur. Chronic pain (pain for more than 3 months) can change brain & nervous system pathways making it easier to feel pain ie sensitisation.

The best way to deal with pain is to understand pain… 

Also the brain has a powerful ability to send out counter signals to dampen pain – slow breathing can be one way to activate this.

Bowen Therapy

A deeply relaxing 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 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.

Exercise Therapy

Exercise can improve mobility, strength, core, heart health, blood sugar, weight management, and mental well being. 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…
