Movement Coaching and Pain Relief
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) an estimated 20% of U.S. adults suffer from chronic pain. The cause of this pain may be accidents, surgeries, medical conditions or any number of sources.
A recent study also estimated the total cost in the United States associated with chronic pain is between $560 and $635 million. This might sound high until you consider the most common reason people seek out medical care is pain.
Left untreated, pain has a profound impact on an individual’s quality of life and can have physical, psychological, social, and economic consequences.
For instance, individuals with chronic pain are often dependent on a caregiver and can experience social isolation. Their pain can also put a strain on their relationships with friends and family. Furthermore, the more time that passes without treating the pain can result in financial hardships such as income loss, healthcare costs, absenteeism from work and more.
Our Specialty Therapies
At Creative Health Solutions, we utilize two movement-based therapies that are designed to help improve range of motion and decrease pain.
The Feldenkrais Method®* is “an approach to improve peoples’ ability to learn and to function through simulating the exploratory style of learning natural to infants. At its heart is the overwhelming need for learning in human development and the equally enormous capacity for learning throughout life.” – Moshe Feldenkrais, creator and founder.
The ANAT BANIEL METHOD® helps people of all ages overcome pain and limitation and achieve lifetime fitness and vitality – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. The method accesses the remarkable capacity of the human brain to form new connections and new patterns and reach levels of performance never achieved before.
*Feldenkrais Method® is a service mark of the Feldenkrais Guild of North America
