MOVEMENT

Movement starts in the brain.

We approach each patients case with the concept that the brain holds us back, protects us from noxious input from our bodies sensory nerves. So before we apply a movement strategy we have to... 

Disarm protective mechanisms

How do we do this? We can read what is happening in the brain by testing the motor system of the body. When there is an input to the brain that is nociceptive (pain that you may not feel), the subprogramming of the brain automatically adjusts and changes our stability patterns to decrease the pain input. This creates joints that are not centrated with stabilizers acting automatically. Prime movers become stabilizers - which is not their job. 

Reactive Stability

The brain has its motor patterns hardwired into the software - so once we remove pain inputs, the body starts to restabilize automatically.
