Muscle Memory Causes Your Chronic Pain
The majority of joint pain, chronic pain, and recurring injuries
are a result of the way you use your body.
Your nervous system is responsible for telling your muscles when to contract and release.
The way you sit, stand, and move is controlled by your nervous system.
As you age, your nervous system learns and adapts to how you do these things.
As you repeat a specific posture or movement, the more that muscular pattern is learned.
Your muscular patterns become memorized so you don’t even have to think about how to move.
This is called learned muscle memory.
Muscle memory gets you through your daily life efficiently.
Sometimes you learn memory patterns that damage your body.
• Looking down at your phone
• Hunched over your computer
• Repetitive movements at work or home
• Compensation movement from an injury
These are all examples of damage causing memory patterns.
To change these learned muscular patterns you need to re-educate your nervous system.

What makes Clinical Somatics so effective
Clinical Somatics addresses the cause of most muscle and joint pain.
It’s more effective than massage, chiropractic, and other therapies.
Passive therapy vs active therapy
Therapies like massage and chiropractic, are passive. That’s because you do not move while the therapy is performed. While passive therapies are enjoyable, their results are not long lasting because they haven’t impacted your nervous system.
To create lasting change in the functioning of your nervous system you need to be actively moving during your treatment to form new neural pathways.
You need to be active and consciously moving in order for your nervous system to learn new muscle memories. No treatment done to you is going to create any lasting change. You need to be active during the treatment.
Treating the cause vs treating the symptoms
Majority of pain treatments only address the symptoms of the problem. They focus on relieving the pain occurring in the area where the pain is being felt.
If you’re having pain in your knee, these treatments focus on your knee. Because of this, the results don’t last.
Clinical Somatics focuses on the cause of your pain by working with full-body muscle & nerve patterns of posture and movement.
Every time you move, your body makes adjustments to allow the movement to happen. That pain in your knee is most likely caused by how you’re using your entire body. In order to get rid of that chronic pain, your entire movement pattern must be addressed.
Self-sufficient vs dependant
Many pain treatments are based on the dependence of a third party provider. You are required to have regular treatments and/or must continue to take medication.
Clinical Somatics teaches you how to take care of yourself.
In fact, it’s founded upon the belief that you have the ability to and should take care of yourself instead of relying on others to maintain your health.
Is Clinical Somatics right for you?
Is your chronic pain caused by disease, infection, or structural damage? (Have your doctor confirm)

Are you tired of relying on other sources to relieve your pain and ready to take matters in your hands?
If you’re ready to commit in a gentle exercise process that can remove your chronic pain, then Clinical Somatics is right for you.
