The Geoff Pitt Natural Therapy guide to:
BACK AND NECK PAIN
HOW AND WHY, WE TREAT NECK PAIN AND BACK PAIN
The art, not the science of joint mobility is to recreate joint function. This allows blood to re-enter the area, muscles to expand and contract, and restoration of the autonomy of the nervous system, inflammation to facilitate rebuilding tissue, carrying in essential nutrients and carrying away waste. The time this takes for recovery depends on individual factors and is assessed individually during the first appointment. “There is no such thing as a stressful situation – only our reaction to that situation”
Reduce stress for health's sake
Our modern lifestyle today incorporates immeasurable stresses on our bodies, to the extent that seldom does one factor alone stand in our way of achieving the health goals we desire.
It is estimated we encounter some 70,000 toxic and harmful chemicals in our environment, some 2,500 in our food chain. We all suffer from some degree of malnutrition. Maybe we drink alcohol (10 oz kills 10,000 brain cells), or smoke something. Our culture approves of stress as normal. Due to this, our body suffers as a whole, not a bit here or a bit there.
This thumb nail sketch of therapies used to enhance us to do daily battle with this onslaught is designed to help you understand what you can do, what can help. Your decision as to what to do will always remain yours. In considering this, take stock of each area; physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, and material. Always recognising that in fact these areas are inseparable, and that the sum of the parts is greater than the total of the individual components.
