PAIN happens for one of two reasons:
- The impact of an accident
- Repetitive strain through doing an action without adequate strength or alignment and so putting excess strain on a part of the body.
- Ageing and losing sight of the correct way to move due to previous habits and injuries creating us to compensate in the way we move.
Pain may or may not be present right now, but bad alignment will eventually cause it.
Highlighting bad movement technique can explain why a certain part of you is less than comfortable. Continuing to move and use an uncomfortable joint will end in wear and tear, but produce a compensation along the way with other areas working overtime. Before embarking on an exercise regime it is a really good idea to check the body out for its ability to move.
Even when in pain understanding the bodies ability to move is the first step to reducing pain and improving the quality of life and activity. Functioning with pain is not only cumbersome, but it can lead to depression, it leads to irritation which results in a less than happy family life. All these things can be improved if we learn to move in a way that does not elicit pain.
What do we do that is different?
First, we assess the body as a whole and look to see where there are areas of limitation. If the body is symmetrical and if the joints and limbs move the same way. Then we look at the strength of the body – is it able to hold itself and then is it able to function the same. Once we have established what is going on we attempt to educate the body into becoming symmetrical in flexibility, movement and strength. Every part of rehabilitation and training is done in a way that looks and improves the biomechanics if the person to reduce the load off the injured areas.
Working Online or Face2face
Lockdown enforced online training, this is something that never would have happened before. This has been a healthy experiment because it proved with good communication to explain to the client in their language and using feedback of video, photos and drawing on screens we have had amazing results and have helped improve the lives of many people who were in pain without even seeing them face2face.
Gaining Recognition and great Results
We have had huge recognition from top-level surgeons with amazing positive feedback and more importantly results that have far surpassed expectation and in some cases surpassed the predicted improvement of “normal” times. Some of these clients as mentioned before have not even seen us face2face.
