and all those between - demonstrate the ability of the body and mind to
somehow adapt to the event and carry on. In the initial period after
injury our mind and body do their best to survive. We learn what's
possible and what's not. We learn to move in new ways and to protect
those injured areas of our system. This is all as it should be.
things can become problematic. What we have learnt during
the time immediately after injury may - subconsciously - come to
redefine the way we move. In protecting ourselves from the memory and
expectation of pain we can become reluctant to move in ways which are
outside these new patterns of movement.
these new patterns of movement have not taken into consideration our
inherent design then we can - with the best of intentions -
end up working against ourselves. Even exercise programs undertaken in
this way can become problematic, failing to prove a sure path to
rehabilitation or even causing new injuries in the process.
approach will help you develop some body intelligent solutions to these
problems. You will develop appropriate skills of self management to
avoid the occurence of re-injury and chronic pain.
