Pain is truly a great motivator for change. It’s usually a symptom of a series of events to subtle to recognize as they occur. The most reliable long term solution, is to identify and address the cause. Pain needs to be handled with respect. It is letting us know something is wrong. Even though we can usually identify the various characteristics of pain: onset, aspect, time and symptoms, identifying the driver can be tricky. Orthopedic, viscera/somatic, limbic/emotional, auto-immune, etc. are usually enmeshed, necessitating a view of the whole while addressing the parts. I consistently adjust the view, giving space for the source of the pain to reveal itself. This way I make the right referrals  and recommend the relevant course of action, even as needs change. Just as injuries are usually a fluctuating process…so is healing.

Pain management:

  1. Postural alignment

  2. Drinking adequate quality water

  3. Eating for needs

  4. Soft tissue treatment

  5. Relaxation practices

PS I get great results especially with plantar fasciitis, ITBS, and neck and shoulder pain.
