Number one reason why with age pain and injuries increase and how to reverse it!
As we get older we get bolder but not when it comes to movement and exercise.
We start to pick up injuries and it takes longer to recover. Slowly it appears as though we’re just getting too old or fragile to try anything new.
But not everyone! Some still go on and break records and achieve new feats. Why? What’s the difference?
Exciting new research has confirmed what all observant physical therapists have been suspecting. It’s the brain and its neural connections that’s the main difference between those who bounce back and those who become chronically ill or stay in pain. The great news is we can all rewire it!
How do you re-wire your brain to move better and feel less pain?
The key is to understand how our brain is “wired” in the first place and how does pain affect the wiring of our brain.
Imagine being viciously attacked by a dog or a cat. How comfortable would you be around dogs or cats after that?
Imagine dislocating your finger twice by picking up a spoon with your right hand, how likely would be to do it again and not “compensate” by using it with your left instead, even though it's just a spoon? Our brain is wired to keep us alive & well. The fear of pain or an injury, forces it to find a different pattern of movement. Sometimes short term this is needed to give the injured area time to rest and heal, e.g. a broken bone.
However often these short term compensatory patterns, become new permanent movement patterns. Over time these compensatory patterns add up, causing imbalances in activation of muscles and uneven stress on joints and spine.
That’s why at North Sydney's Northside Wellness Centre we’ve developed a very efficient technique that identifies and addresses these compensatory patterns while improving the movement of the joints at the same time. It has an almost magical instantaneous effect on pain and the range of motion.
