Presented by Andy Hsieh
There’s still so much grey area when we look at pain science. To summarize what we know, it’s a signal from the brain to tell the body that there is an immediate threat, and we need to change whatever we are doing to prevent further harm. If the brain senses that it’s always under threat, pain becomes chronic.
Chronic Pain put simply is a loop or habit that’s negative to what our mind and body deem safe, if we’re stuck in that loop and don’t know how to get out of it, issues start arising over time.
This is the philosophy I based the majority of my movement practice on. The question is, how do we get people from chronic pain, to be pain-free with movement? Movement therapy, strength training, mindset coaching, surgery, medicine, massage, stretching, etc. All these are forms of practices that take the body out of a pain loop, the more we teach the body that it’s allowed to not be in pain, we can teach it to stay out of pain for longer periods of time.
During the webinar, Andy will discuss
- Breaking down pain to an easier digestible language we can present to our clients and patients
- Understanding the Pain Threshold
- Differences of pain tolerance in elite athletes vs. the general population and how to deal with each person
- Basics of Neurology in regards to pain and pain tolerance
- Understanding the concepts of Andy’s “RRAMP Method”, developed to help people manage pain, then progress to performance and longevity.
- RRAMP = Release Tight and overactive muscles, Reset the nervous system, Activate the primal muscles that drive movement, Move the body in fundamental ways, then Play with unfamiliar movements so we can challenge the body and have fun – pain-free.
