Change your focus and your pain?

11225417_10104314590907132_2664748959579133274_oFocus is the first step to get through pain.

The brain is such an amazing programmable computer.  Whatever the brain focuses is on tells the thinking and emotional systems of the brain what messages to send to the body. So, if you focus on pain the pain increases.

Experiment: Look at the image of the bridge at the right. If you focus on the trees, you don’t see the details of the bridge or water rushing below the bridge.

To decrease pain, the focus has to shift. How?

Journey out of shoulder pain -day 6

So it is day 6 and I am determined to unlock this right shoulder

 I want to stretch, lift and complete quick movements without pain.

Knowing you are guarding the injury site and uncovering why you are doing it can begin to soften the neuro-emotional objections you have developed to releasing the old trauma at the site of injury.

The two ways that are helping tonight are visualization and singing.

To protect my tightened muscles and tendons in my shoulders, I began rounding the shoulders.

*Reset your posture:

Take a deep belly breath. Then squeeze and release the shoulder blades while tightening  the belly. Then relax the shoulders -keep your chin straight and release your breath through your nose.

Knowing that reaction pattern was set in place and then continually repeated every time I bumped, slipped or sat over a computer.

*Angel in the snow

*Lay down on your back with your head and spine resting on a rolled rug on the floor (or on your bed if floor is too challenging)

Angel in the snow
Angel in the snow

*Practice creating snowmen

**Begin with arms at your sides and move them comfortably and slowly  (on your breath)  upward until you begin to feel your muscles start to resist. Return to stating position and repeat. Feels freeing and reminds me of playing in the snow as a kid.

 

Results I could extend my arms upward easier now and I realized that there was a strong emotion coming to the surface. I finally realized I was breaking free !

 

If you would like me to help you find a gentle way to retrain your body and be healthy and free, contact Mary Wolken PhD through the Pain Away link on this page.

 

PS. If you have noticed that the dates on this post is not  two days after the previous post -great observation!  The observations  are accurate for day 6 results.

Journey out of shoulder pain – day 4

help is there-painConfession: I had a melt down 4 days ago.

Did to much and the shoulder screamed at me.

So I’m averaging 2 to 3 heat and vibrational therapy treatments daily and the acute pain in my shoulder is waning. PT (physical therapist) checked it today and feels I just over did my new stretching exercises, I had temporarily added to my daily routine. I’m at the point where I’m chomping at the bit to get to “normal” functioning.  I know slow and steady wins the race. Baah!

 

Even though I tell people recovering from injury or illness to take it slow when you start to feel better and think you are over the worst of the slow recovery steps. CAUTION!!

As you to probably experienced, add too much of a load and your body will scream for relief. Know what I mean?  So I have 1 exercise to do -a reach and stretch and can do shoulder rotations but take it easy.  Now if you are like me going slow was never part of my makeup.  It has to be perfect to right?  Heat has been a God sent gift.

Do ask questions and I’ll do my best to answer them.  Comments welcome.

I will keep you posted and if you try this techniques, please post your results here for all to see. Click here for the link to Brad Walker’s methods.
