Injury recovery; why people fail - Technique For Living

Injury recovery; why people fail


You are more than likely to fail at recovery. Very few if any conventional treatments teach you how to use your body. They give you little or no control. How can you recover from injury if you can't control your body? Giving you a practical way for using your body never happens. You just do the therapy. Usually being cracked into place. Doing exercises which involve stretching or core stability. Expectations are high, but not realistic. You are not able to use this when they aren't there with you. And that’s what has to change. You should be given the toolkit for how your body works so you can undo problems when you need to. You should become independent, not reliant. 

The blind leading the blind

Without a learning process and developing autonomy, there is no understanding. There is no change. The person trying to help you only has something to do to you, rather than with you. They are not developing and neither are you. Relief and change are temporary rather than long lasting. 

It's not therapy, it's learning

While what I do does have a therapeutic effect, it’s NOT a therapy. It’s learning.

After recovering from 4 slipped discs I managed to slip them another 7 times playing some very physical sports in my twenties. I put them back in by myself each time, just using the techniques I teach people everyday. This is how it should be for everyone. No one should suffer endlessly from back pain. That’s what I believe.

About the Author Edward Fisher

Hi, I'm Edward Fisher and I believe that everyone can have a life free from back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain and many other musculoskeletal pain related conditions. I recovered from slipped discs and sciatica. I spent 10 months being unable to walk. After 3 months of Alexander Technique I was walking again. Now I show others how to overcome their own pain related conditions for themselves.
