secret to rehab is resurrecting old movment maps

 

In order for any rehabilitation effort to work the persons’ brain must find the attempt interesting enough.

Otherwise there is no logical reason for it to change.

A lack of novelty often prevents people from improving.

This is a very common problem in traditional healthcare.

One of the secrets to a good rehab program is to capitalize on people’s old abilities.

It’s extremely common for adults dealing with serious injury to become even more de-conditioned from their attempts at rehabbing.

It’s a viscous cycle leading to more disuse and more problems.

At TMP, one of the things I ask all of our clients is “what sports or activities did you once enjoy?”

This information can be instrumental in the creativity of your exercises.

Today, while working with an adult recovering from paralysis, we started playing letter ball catch (tennis ball with letters for tracking).

I watched his body language and posture transform as he recalled old maps for being an excellent ball-sport athlete!

Balance instantly improved and it followed with an immediate change in emotional health. All the things I need as a platform to guide a person to better health and performance.

Find their old maps.

They still exist!

The person just needs permission to unlock that door.
