What is a LOGiC Pain & Injury Workshop all about?
We all feel pain – we all get injured! Back pain, knee pain, arthritis, nerve pain, sciatica, fibromyalgia – just some of the conditions which can strike us with pain which we find hard to manage and difficult to live with. Sometimes in spite of our best efforts & whatever measures we take to ‘protect’ ourselves we STILL get injured – LOGiC Pain and Injury Workshops are all about learning what to do when these things happen and learning how to recover faster!
We may stretch, do Pilates, Yoga or some other whole-body discipline; we may take exercise or lead a sedentary lifestyle – either by choice or necessity; we may have a health condition which means we are in pain and unable to take exercise; we may have had surgery or an illness in the past which is now haunting us with symptoms we cannot manage; we may have learned how to ‘lift correctly’, how to ‘align our body correctly’ and follow these guidelines to the best of our ability – and in spite of all these things we still get injured and feel pain! That is reality. That is being human!
The reality is that knowing what to do and why we are doing it empowers us to make the right decisions when we get injured and feel pain – LOGiC Pain and Injury Workshops teach you how to listen to the signals your body is giving you and what to do (and not to do) about them.
Some common dilemmas people often have are:
- Should I ignore the pain and carry on?
- How do I know when I’ve done enough movement?
- The pain killers I took for a previous injury aren’t working – why?
- The exercise my neighbour (or Google!) told me would cure me hasn’t worked – why?
- The method I usually follow when I’m hurt hasn’t worked this time – what should I do now?
- When should I seek medical advice?
- Can I mix the pills I want to take with the ones I already take?
- Why won’t a scan or X-ray help?
- Can I manage my pain better?
- Can anyone help me manage my pain or condition better?
- I’ve been told my joints are degenerating and unstable, what should I do?
- I’m in too much pain to take exercise – how can I help myself?
Dilemmas and questions like these are explored during the course of the day. See the ‘What will I learn’ page for further details.
