Repetitive action and overuse of those areas are some reasons why you might experience musculoskeletal injury. Falling down, sports injuries, getting involved in an accident are other possible triggers. Degeneration of the joints over time is also another reason for this form of injury.

Chronic pain is a complex condition. Anyone can experience chronic pain for a number of reasons. Causes of chronic pain include fatigue and overuse of muscles due to repetitive movement or position. Other reasons include lack of exercise, stress, poor posture and poor sleep.
Movement disorder occurs when you start experiencing difficulty in movement, such as walking, bending or lifting. It usually starts gradually and becomes noticeable over a period of time. Movement disorder could be caused by past injuries and poor habitual pattern, which may disrupt and change the normal way the body moves.
Chronic pain and movement disorder are not easy to deal with. A comprehensive and proper assessment is crucial to find out the root cause of the problems. Active movement is the key.
We help our client resolve the chronic pain and movement disorder using a combination of treatments. It includes:
- Thorough assessment to find out the root cause of problem.
- Soft tissue manipulation and joint mobilization techniques to reduce chronic tension of soft tissues and improve joint movement.
- Conditioning exercises to balance weak and restricted muscles.
- Combining Structural Integration sessions to improve posture, alignment, joint mobility and body awareness. Rolfing minimizes the pain you feel by correcting any imbalances in your body structure that might be aggravating your pain.
Structural Integration (SI) works on body muscles and soft tissues through a series of soft tissue work and movements. It aims to release, realign and balance the whole body. Regular SI session potentially resolves discomfort, reducing compensations and alleviating pain.
SI aims to restore flexibility and mobility in joints, revitalize your energy and leave you feeling more ease with your body. It enables the body to regain the natural integrity of its form, thus enhancing postural efficiency and freedom of movement.
