Your Pain

IMPACT Understands Your Pain

Patients see doctors because they are in pain! It’s a simple concept. But pain is a very complex topic.
Pain begins a cycle that can become debilitating and incapacitating if the cycle is allowed to progress.

The greatest evil is physical pain.

Saint Augustine

The cycle goes like this

  • Injury

    Injury causes the brain and body to compensate to avoid the pain. For example, if you injure your right shoulder, you will be careful when using your right arm and you will use your left arm more frequently to allow your right arm to heal.

  • Healing

    If the injury heals slowly, this compensation causes other muscles and tendons to be used more frequently and move in ways not normal or naturally intended.

  • Inactivity

    Prolonged inactivity from the injured area causes the affected area to become even weaker, and the degree of compensation begins to hurt because of overuse and unusual movement.

  • After Effects

    Posture, body movement, and even breathing may become more and more compromised, causing pain in more and more areas of the body.

This is why pain in the shoulder becomes pain in the neck and the shoulder. Back pain becomes back, hip, leg, and even neck pain. When the mind and the body continue with this fashion, the cycle must be stopped.

Neuromuscular reeducation is the medical term for what is required to stop the cycle of pain. Our clinic is expert in neuromuscular reeducation and our clinical staff is trained to stop the pain cycle. IMPACT is one of a handful of clinics in the entire country certified in the advanced science of “Postural Restoration”.

Postural Restoration techniques, and others are used to stop the pain cycle. This creates different outcomes from what a patient has experienced elsewhere. Patients often experience the difference on their first therapy visit. Our skill in neuromuscular reeducation is one reason why our clinic succeeds with our patients when so many others have failed to help them.
