NeuroMovement® and PAIN:
It is common to focus on the area that is painful, for example the lower back, and try to do something to make the pain go away. You may try massaging, stretching, or rubbing the area. Doing these kinds of things may be somewhat helpful, at least temporarily. Of course, there is also medication, which is helpful short-term, but can be damaging or addictive long-term.
However, it is difficult to “fix” lower back pain by simply focusing on the lower back. What often is not understood is that pain is caused by deeply ingrained habits of movement. This means that to eliminate pain, you need to change the patterns of movement in your brain. You need to discover new ways to move your body as a whole.
NeuroMovement® for Traumatic Brain Injury (TMI) and Stroke:
When an adult has had a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or stroke, often times NeuroMovement® can provide breakthrough results in her recovery and rehabilitation.
What is often overlooked is that after trauma, the brain is a changed brain that needs to manage a changed body. It can no longer manage the body and organize itself the same way it did before the trauma.
NeuroMovement® provides a holistic treatment for brain injury. How we help people with stroke or brain injuries recover function is dramatically different. We do not ask them to do what they cannot do. We understand that the loss of function is due to loss of connections in the brain.
Using gentle movements and the 9 Essentials, we create optimal conditions for the brain to wake up and learn new ways of moving, thinking, and acting.
