PAIN NEUROSCIENCE EDUCATION (PNE)
Pain Neuroscience Education (PNE) helps explain that the pain is not always due to local tissue damage but rather a hypersensitive nervous system. With educational sessions of the neurobiology of pain, graded exposure to movements, specific goal setting and mindfulness training, you will understand the role of the central nervous system as a contributor to your pain cycle and how to improve your pain. Our therapists incorporate the most current research on pain science into your treatment program to break the pain cycle and meet your goals.
All of our therapists incorporate biofeedback into treatment for those who require additional tools to better control their pelvic muscles. External or internal vaginal/ rectal sensors may be used to help you relax muscles to resume sex or bathroom function, or contract them to be active without leakage.
Our therapists have advanced training in diagnosing and treating the specific problems that may occur during your pregnancy and/or postpartum. Specific exercise programs, gentle yet effective hands-ons techniques, education, posture and body mechanics training are tailored to meet your individual goals during this exciting time in life.
