Pain, whether chronic or persistent, can have a debilitating effect on our quality of life. Believe it or not, neuroscience research tells us that when we learn about what pain is (and isn’t), we immediately start to reduce our anxiety about pain, feel better, and start to move towards being free from the cycle of pain; the ‘treatment zone’.
This 75 minute live webinar is delivered by Angela James FACP; one of Australia’s most experienced pelvic Physiotherapists and founder of SPC. Angela presents the latest neuroscience evidence to explain how the nervous system influences chronic and persistent pelvic pain, how the brain can amplify our pain response, how stress, danger, anxiety and sleep impact pain, how pain is neurologically wired in our brains, why the pelvis is susceptible to chronic/persistent pain, and why reducing the sensitivity of your nervous system is paramount to creating lasting change.
You will learn about the phenomenon of ‘the cycle of pain’, and be empowered with tools and lifestyle strategies to help you manage your nervous system and position yourself in the “treatment zone.”.
