Step 1: Gain Knowledge

Persistent pain is related to two things:

  • Changes in your body
  • Neuroplastic changes in your nervous systems

When pain persists the body’s nervous systems can become sensitive and hypervigilant. Small movements and generally painless stimulations, such as a light touch, pressure, cold and stress, suddenly cause pain.

Luckily, there’s hope for improvement, as we can influence neuroplastic changes through our actions.

One way to recalibrate the body’s nervous systems is to move with more ease while keeping our body, breath and mind calm.

Moving with more ease isn’t just a long-term goal. It should be a concrete objective whenever you move or exercise.
