A tremendous amount of energy is used in coping with pain so that one can function. The loss in energy to the pain slows healing. Swelling, myofascial tightness, muscular tension, spasms, trigger points, sluggishness in the nervous system, pressure on nerves, restricted breathing patterns can all contribute to pain. These factors are often paired with habitual conscious and subconscious thought, posture and behavior patterns that influence symptoms. Working with the whole person in all the areas indicated by assessment is quite useful and effective.
