Physiotherapy and Persistent Pain Programmes
The body’s natural healing processes means that we can recover from injury, but often, when our body heals, it does so with restrictions and weaknesses. This means that we can’t move as freely and easily as we might like to after we’ve had an injury or painful problem.
If we encounter problems, such as acute and chronic back and neck pain, sciatica, sprained ankle, shoulder tendonitis, tennis elbow, it’s important that we optimise our body’s natural healing processes in order to overcome them.
At BodyMind Solutions, we help you to do this so you can get back to doing what you’d like to do.
There are many reasons that we may get pain, injury may be one of them. On other occasions, pain may appear, and we don’t know why it arises.
At BodyMind Solutions, we help you to discover and address the causes of ongoing pain and restriction in movement.
As well as there being many reasons why pain may begin, there are also many other reasons why pain might continue
We’re expert at identifying the underlying causes that may be stopping you from recovering from such a problem.
We will address all of these reasons, looking at physical components such as posture, muscle length, muscle strength, coordination as well as your physical activities and demands.
We may also explore with you how your thoughts and feelings may be impacting on your physical body.
Emotional stress and anxiety can create tension in our muscles (part of our fight or flight response) which will impact on how our muscles can function and, consequently, how easily you can move.
During your initial assessment session we help identify the cause of your problem and develop a programme to address this to help you get you back to living an active pain free life.
