Story time! 🤗📚
I recently had a long-term patient come in for a “tune up” (and just generally to catch up, which is always nice!) and we had a little discussion about 💥PAIN💥
Not discussing how much pain they were in or what kind of pain it was, but more about how they WEREN’T AFRAID of pain anymore 🥳
THIS MADE MY HEART EXPLODE WITH DELIGHT! 🥰
They said to me “The best thing is, I’m not scared of it anymore! You helped me learn to not be scared of pain”
Now, this may seem like a small win. However, this poor person had endured a chronic musculoskeletal condition that was quite aggressive, limiting their day-to-day life and lasting the better part of a year. Yeah, can you imagine?! 😖
This takes its toll on a person, physically AND mentally. The slightest of pain causes distress and the negative association is lodged in your mind, “It’s hurts when I do that, well now I CAN’T do that anymore… what am I going to do” and this can lead you down a very nasty path.
If your mental state is in a constant spiral of negative thoughts and emotions, your body will feed off that. It sounds like some cliché holistic voodoo, but it’s true 🤓
Through not just treatments, but just generally TALKING about pain completely changed this person’s mindset about their condition, their path from here and their future outcome.
From being frightened: “when will this end! I got told it could go on for years!” to optimistic: “okay, so it IS going to end, it WILL get better, it’s going to be okay”.
This may seem like subtle changes, but to someone who’s in some pretty nasty chronic pain, this is HUGE! The minute you take control and change the way you think, the minute you start to heal 😇
It’s not always a straight and steady path to recovery. It’s chockers with ups and downs, backs and forths, twists and turns, upsy-downsy’s, stops and starts 🥴
➡️ DONT FOCUS ON THE STATE OF THE ROAD! Just focus on you and the fact that you ARE DOING IT!⬅️
You can be a walking textbook, and still have room to learn more. Love being able to catch up with @coach_mick_ and talk shop and learn some new things. Thanks for the reset big dog, until next time! #Repost @coach_mick_ with @get_repost

Dealing with pain or dysfunction from an injury❓
Are you doing something about it❓
If not then, why not❓
You can’t expect injuries to magically 🤹♀️ heal on their own.
And even if the pain does go away, the majority of the time function does not improve as fast, thus leading to more injuries down the road. 🤔
We deal with this a lot in our office...
Patient: “I thought if I just waiting it would go away”
The majority of the time, the longer you wait, the worse it gets.
Just something to think about as the year comes to an end. If you are suffering from pain and dysfunction, why are aren’t you doing something about it??
We’re here to help.
Call us for an evaluation and let’s get you back to the activities you want to be doing.
Don’t let 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣ be another year of avoiding the issue.
Last week to get a massage in‼️ Treat yourself or a loved one to a massage this Christmas 🎄
I’m a mobile therapist so I come to you, enjoy a massage in the comfort of your own home.
Message me to book 📚
Pressure is the amount of force that I put through my hands to create change during a treatment.. it's not about being super strong.. it's about using force in specific ways to create change in the underlying soft tissue structures! Massage is ALL about technique, awareness and tailoring your knowledge to best help a client! If you would like to experience a treatment with a different take on Remedial Masssge then please DM our page! 📷 @tracy_lee_photography

Why we love this vibrating sphere:
1. Its shape & size gives us more specificity to target those hot spots
2. The vibration technology promotes circulation by creating areas of warmth under the tissue. Hyperice has done extensive tests to show this, specifically in their thermographic photos.
3. This ball is very portable! It’s easy to pack, easy to charge, easy to take with you on weekend trips or in the car for immediate relief after training.
Don’t forget to enter our IG giveaway for a chance to win one of these for yourself!! #hyperice#hypersphere#sportsrecovery
If your eyes are the window to your soul, then your feet can be the door to your goals! Many times clients have said that me, "no one has ever looked at my feet" and yet for many, the feet are the sole platform for balance and locomotion. I love seeing transformations such as this one, where neurological weakness and soft tissue shortening were exacerbating problems with balance. Once unable to stand unsupported, and having reduced foot contact with the floor, to now being able to dual task on a wobble board with a narrow stance and much improved foot and ankle alignment, reducing the risk of falling and ankle injury. #neurophysio#footandankle#balance#dayjob#wobbleboard#balancetraining#softtissuetherapy#functionalbalance#shorelinephysio
Know your pain science: Part 3 🔥🏃♂️🔥
👉🏻This next concept is easily the biggest takeaway out of this pain series. Not everyone is going to be ready for it yet.
🔥People in chronic pain need to get out of bed and move. 🔥
👉🏻The unfortunate truth of the matter is that we have been living in a society where for decades the most common recommendations for pain included excessive bedrest, limited physical activity, or avoidance of workouts and gyms. This dogma led to a generalized trend of fear avoidance behavior to which we now know can play a factor in psychologically catastrophizing levels of pain. Thus began the downward spiral of getting in pain, fearing that pain, and eventual leading to an unnecessary increase in that same pain. ⠀⠀
👉🏻While avoiding certain movements plays a role in the healing process, to recommend complete ablation of movement-based concepts has proven to be a great short-coming in our modern era. ⠀⠀
👉🏻We have become much more refined with integration that helps blur the borders of movement providers, manual therapists, and trainers. All can have a huge impact when educating others on these concepts. ⠀⠀
👉🏻Hopefully this isn’t entirely new. While some understand moving more is better, they don’t necessarily have all the high level concepts we can continue to talk through in future posts. More individualized efforts will help move health care out of the bed rest mentality. We are far past this. You know better. Let’s continue to help others move more and find physical wealth with pushing their body intelligently to get out of pain.
