What pain management is and how it works
Pain is a signal, an alarm to make you aware some part of your body may be or may become damaged. Once you recognise and take steps to remove the cause of the pain or act to remedy the damage being done there is no need for the pain to continue. How many times have you contacted the surgery for an appointment with your GP and found that when you get to your appointment the pain has disappeared or the symptom is no longer presenting? This is because you have taken action in order to address the problem. Many aches and pains and ailments are rooted in brain processes that can be affected by your mental attitude and emotion, promoting good mental health or letting go of emotional issues repairs a lot of ailments the body can suffer with. Our pain clinic offers several therapies all of which are very successful for most people in managing, diminishing or negating pain.
Different approaches provide different solutions. We have a range of therapies that can help you either manage or be rid of pain.
NeuroKinetic Therapy. Known as Neuromuscular Reprogramming® (NMR®) in its previous incarnation, is an innovative and increasingly well-known method of manual therapy which utilises manual muscle testing to assess and correct dysfunctions of the coordination system of the brain. Working primarily with the nervous system to resolve movement problems which can cause the lack of function or pain people experience. Pain should not define you.
Fascia is a thin, tough, elastic type of connective tissue which forms fibrous layers in a continuous spiders web from head to toe, with no beginning or end. Fascia surrounds muscles, groups of muscles, blood vessels, organs, and nerves. Myofascia, pronounced “my o fash a”, is fascia which covers and links all your muscles and bones. If you eat meat, this is the white membrane like substance that surrounds what you want to eat.
Biofeedback Neuro Stimulation
Myofascial Release (MFR) is a safe and very effective hands on technique to reorganise the fascial tissue and break down adhesions. This involves applying gentle sustained pressure to directly lengthen, stretch, soften and improve the health of the fascial layers to relieve pain, resolve structural and postural dysfunction, restore function and mobility (and release emotional trauma), resulting in a feeling of being more at home in your own body.
SCENAR helps our adaptation systems produce mediators, hormones and other chemical substances, redirecting the body’s energy back to the injury and gives the body what is known as “Primary Focus”, it can then begin to repair itself.
EFT is very effective in helping manage pain in chronic illnesses such Fibromyalgia, Parkinson’s Disease, Diabetes and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. It has been researched extensively, with strongly positive results for its effectiveness in resolving both emotional and physical difficulties. It is gentle enough to be used by people in chronic pain and with the pain that comes from chronic disease.
Our therapists focus on acute and chronic pain conditions that arise in the muscles, joints, tendons and ligaments. Whether this pain has arisen from injury, poor posture, overuse (i.e. repetitive strain), stress or any other reason we aim is to relieve your pain and improve your flexibility.
