Quite often when we are dealing with pain, especially if it has been around for a long time, we can accept this is “our” normal and just something we have to put up with. But this is not the case.
The reason most people experience pain is through previous injury, traumas, scars from operations or injuries, sprains, knocks to the body, and many other reasons. And the reason pain can still be there is not through damage but through the perception of damage that the brain still perceives.
Think about it like this. Your body should be telling the brain 12345. But instead, your body is telling your brain 13524. It has all the right numbers, but because it’s disorganised, your brain perceives this as pain, as a threat. In other words, it perceives that there is still a problem there. Most people after an accident or trauma will heal within 6 to 12 weeks. But the pain and after-effects can be with the body for life. Unless this is treated. This is where functional neurology can help.
Through a specific treatment, we can figure out why and where you have a dysfunction, and reset the disorganised information so that the brain perceives this properly. This reset. Restores the correct function of your body so it moves correctly.
For some people, you can see a profound difference and remove the dysfunction and pain within one session. However, because of the nature of your movements, your lifestyle, and your daily actions, some dysfunctions may take more time to unravel. This means you may need a number of treatments. Purely because a number of dysfunctions have been created throughout your life.
Think of this as a hierarchy of dysfunctions, for example, a deck of cards, like a king at the top, you’ll have the queens, then the jacks, and then the number cards. Imagine one dysfunction being like the King and other dysfunctions in the body like the jacks and the number cards. If we can reorganise the jacks and the number cards the dysfunctions will improve and you definitely will feel better. Remove the King dysfunction and all lower-level dysfunctions disappear too.
By resolving this problem most clients within a number of treatments will become pain-free.
After this, we can provide training plans, custom coaching, and other tools and resources to allow you to improve upon this and become physically stronger and more resilient. This allows you to continue through your everyday life and the activities you enjoy with far more function, and quality movement and have a sense of reassurance that you have the adaptability and ability to do more.
