Chronic Pain and a Movement Based ApproachAug 04, 2019

Chronic pain is a complicated multi factorial output of threat from the brain where What You Think (cognition) and What You Do (action) have a big influence of What You Feel (perception). For a while now one of the main approaches to creating positive changes in chronic pain has focused on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy which focuses on educating the patient and changing unhelpful or unhealthy thinking habits, feelings and behaviours around pain.
At the Movement Assessment Technologies we focus on What You Do, using movement interventions to assist in modulating What You Feel through developing movement capacity (strength, power, stamina, range of motion etc) competency (movement skill, precision etc) and variability (different angles, different positions etc) to reduce the potential for experience or perceived threat in movement.
