WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF PHYSICAL THERAPY?
WHAT IS OUR APPROACH TO PHYSICAL THERAPY?
BREAKING THE CYCLE OF PAIN
Understanding the cycle of pain is the first step towards achieving relief from trauma. Movement Medicine is a unique and holistic approach to getting patients better faster and longer than traditional Physical Therapy is concerned. Trauma may be physical or mental/emotional or spiritual. Treating the original injury may or may not be the first thing on the priority list. The cycle of pain is broken down as follows:
- Trauma is defined as a memorable event that negatively impacts your well-being. Remember that not all who have had a trauma are traumatized.
- Next is the dysfunction that occurs after a dramatic experience while the body attempts to heal. The initial healing process is typically thwarted by over-the-counter medications and quick-fix treatments which prevent the body from healing completely.
- The body then compensates for the injury with traits such as a limp or avoiding situations that cause pain (i.e., taking the elevator instead of the stairs).
- Accelerated Tissue Damage then takes place and is not treated well by traditional means. Gadgets and pills, followed by surgical interventions are suggested as treatment, whereas regenerative medicine seeks to rebuild the damaged tissue.
- Finally, a series of preventable injuries occur in a snowball effect that could have been prevented by being Rooted in MVMNT, and working to rebuild tissues.
