Chronic Pain | A New Hope

Debilitating. Veiling. Agitating. Distracting. Hopeless. Chronic pain has many accompanying adjectives, none of which are positive. More than anything though, being in consistent pain acts as a veil. We feel isolated, held back, distracted, and a slave to our own pain. I don’t know about you, but I am not okay with that. Are you!?

At Smart Move Wellness, we have one goal: to help you move well. You may be asking what that has to do with chronic pain so I’ll break this down for you. Your chronic pain healing is dependent on a well functioning nervous system. If your nervous system is a) perceiving too much threat b) receiving poor sensory input c) overloaded with emotional, psychological impairments on top of poor sensory input, then you are going to experience chronic pain or one of its nasty cousins like anxiety, depression, ulcers, migraines, etc. You get the idea: dysfunctional nervous system = PAIN.

Unless you have an extremely trained eye, it’s nearly impossible to know how your nervous system is flawed but that doesn’t mean you can’t begin training the nervous system to boost your functionality. This is Smart Move Wellness: retraining the nervous system to optimal functionality, AKA no pain! So to review…

Poor nervous system function = Pain

Indicators of a poor functioning nervous system are: chronic pain, excess tension in movement, inflexibility, anxiety, foggy memory, foggy thinking, constant overwhelm, migraines/headaches, nausea

Nervous system training = No pain

Training your sensory input includes: activating the visual, vestibular, and proprioceptive systems to improve your nervous system functionality

It’s that simple, but it’s not easy. You have spent years in specific patterns that have brought you to this painful place and it will take conscious effort and practice to recover. The bright side of that is while recovering, you’re going to feel better, and better and better and better each time you train!

If you’re reading this and thinking, “YES! I get this. I need to do this.” Contact me or registern up for my upcoming Move Well: Fibromyalgia Therapy Program where you will learn to retrain your nervous system.
