FIGHTING AGAINST PAIN ONLY MAKES IT WORSE

Only persistent, conscious, attentive, and curious exploration and an easier way to perform the movement and effectively express emotions eliminates pain and changes thinking. 

 

Sensory-motor amnesia and a lack of time force people to divert their attention to the future or past.

 

Only persistent, conscious, attentive, and curious exploration and an easier way to perform the movement and effectively express emotions eliminates pain and changes thinking. Our conscious control and efficiency increases; we use our time and energy better.

 

The changes in lifestyle that came with the modern age were mainly due to the steam engine's invention and later related inventions. With the Industrial Revolution, the developed part of the planet easily converted the energy of wood and fossil fuels into motion. It was thus less dependent on the energy it drew from food to do the work.

WHEN UNKNOWN PAIN APPEARS

The reason behind the painful movement is that it is too big of a disorder, not enough control over your body and lack of feeling, all of which the body warns us about.   And with that, we can see how wrong our attitude towards pain is. It's the main result of reducing the importance of learning and the time we spend in life learning and research, which reduces the ability to lengthen muscles.   The coordination between contracting and expanding our muscles is greatly reduced when they are performing a certain movement. This eventually leads to increased disorder in movement, work, and with that, life. The disorder leads to inefficiency and has a greater influence on our mood and abilities.   What is our pain warning us about   We are first reminded of this by discomfort and resistance.

DIAGNOSIS: SUSPECTED ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS

I've been having back pain for a long time. I'm realizing now that I was able to silence the pain more, but that doesn't mean it wasn't present. However, by learning the AEQ method®, I understand that when I tried to silence my back pain, I managed to overlook a part of myself.   The pain came and also completely disappeared at different time intervals throughout my life. I was very active in sports, and my body was strong, but the most important muscles were very weak because I had the wrong approach to the sport. Two years ago, the pain was so unbearable that it could not be silenced. It emerged mainly at night (in my lower back and the chest), somehow it was possible to get through the day. My personal doctor referred me to do an X-ray, a blood test and an MRI. A blood test showed positive HLA-B27, and an MRI confirmed the suspicion of ankylosing spondylitis. Words that can hardly be remembered, let alone pronounce. It was the first time I looked up a disease on the Internet, and there was a lot to read, but there was less about how to successfully approach, treat the disease.

PROPERTIES OF PAIN AND CHRONIC PAIN

Acute pain warns us of an injury or illness by sending a signal into our brain.   Most injuries influence our body tissues and the neurons in our pain system, including those inside our brain and spine, causing neuropathic pain. It occurs due to neurons that make up a kind of map for pain in our brain. Specific areas in our brain for processing information represent our body's outer surfaces and are called brain maps. When we touch a part of the body during active exercise, a specific part of the brain map is activated, representing that part of the body. These maps of our body's surface areas are organized topographically, which means that neighboring areas of the body are next to one another on the map. When the neurons in our map become injured, they constantly send off false alarms and lead us to believe that the problem is within our body, while, in reality, its located mainly in our brain. The body healed ages ago, but the pain system is still activated. Acute pain was given an afterlife - it became chronic pain.

REDUCTION AND ELIMINATION OF SCOLIOSIS

Although scoliosis may also be associated with the genetic picture, stress is an important factor in idiopathic scoliosis.   The basic principle of human functioning is as follows:   Our brains control the muscles based on feelings that travel from the body into our brain. Our muscles are attached to the bones. Bones move because of muscles; when the muscle contracts or expands, the bone on which the muscle is also attached moves (Except in disease processes such as polio, bones never move independently of muscle movement.) Our brains respond to stress by tensing muscle groups in individual patterns.

LEARNING THE AEQ METHOD® AS AN APPROACH TO PAIN RELIEF AND ELIMINATION

AEQ method, i.e., retraining the functioning of the mind through conscious muscle movement, we can learn. With the knowledge we gain, we can alleviate the pain caused by injuries to such emotional and physical ones, which trigger reflexes in us, resulting in (over) tense muscles. With the help of the AEQ method, we learn to regain control of our muscles and movements.

 

We have to change the way our brains work

  Permanent tensions in our muscles create pain, fatigue, joint, tissue inflammation, and nerve entrapment, while rigid muscles limit our flexibility, cause stiffness, and ruin our posture.

CHRONIC PAIN ATTRIBUTED TO AGING

People attribute pain to aging and use old age as an excuse. But the AEQ method, a method of gentle conscious movements, does not recognize this concept, and in the workshops I explain how teachers of the AEQ method associate movement pain with so-called sensory-motor amnesia. The main cause of chronic pain is the gradual deterioration of body sensation, and this is the result of major and minor injuries, stress, worries, harmful behavioral patterns, and misconceptions that limit us in easier functioning and living.   Muscles become used to being tense because of sensory-motor amnesia, despite our best effort to relax them. The problem lies in the fact that we aren’t relaxing them consciously; methods such as stretching, massage, chiropractic and other manual therapies, and painkillers usually don’t help in the long run. If we want to fix problems, we need to teach tense muscles how to relax.

SPORTS INJURIES

Sports: order, rules and orderliness   The meaning of order, rules and orderliness can be better understood by comparing sports similar to one another, such as running on the long track and speed walking.   Injuries that athletes get when running are common and expected. Runners finish their careers way to early and commonly suffer from pain even when they aren’t running. The condition of a speed walker is usually better.   Rules of running do not require good control over the execution of movements, but the movement is regulated by the route from start to finish, correct start, effort, endurance and strength. Most believe that running doesn’t even require special training. The runner spends most of his time and attention to speed and endurance. This increases primarily by consolidating better pain tolerance as an integral part of training and matches. There is not enough conscious improvement of skills and increase of knowledge. Professionalism is limited to blood and urine control.   But when we observe speed walking we notice a different approach: there is more rules regarding the athlete’s movement, learning how to move and constant control over walking.

PAINFUL MENSTRUATION

MENSTRUAL CYCLE PROBLEMS, DYSMENORRHEA, AMENORRHEA AND RED LIGHT REFLEX

• I’ve noticed that women who have problems with the menstrual cycle manifest activated red light reflex. • A woman has abdominal distension, and she cannot relax her abdominal muscles, her shoulders, neck and head are pushed forward. • A few active therapies of the AEQ method® improve the ability to lower average tonus of the abdominal muscles. • The pain stops during menstruation; the menstrual cycle becomes regular again.

50 % to 90 % of women occasionally have problems with painful menstruation (Dysmenorrhea).

Dysmenorrhea is the medical term for menstrual cramps caused by uterine contractions, and it is similar to contractions at childbirth. The uterus (which is a muscle) mildly contracts throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle, however, uterus contracts more strongly during menstruation, and spasms are even stronger during childbirth.

CONTROLLING THE MUSCLES

The main purpose of learning better muscle control is to achieve mastery. Muscle control involves much more than improving the ability to contract them. It includes increasing the ability to relax (expand) muscles, which is just as important as contracting them. It allows better selective control over the muscles and, consequently, the development and improvement of selective muscle use, which are important for performing the movement in a more appropriate way (agonists/antagonists).   That way, we increase the efficiency of energy usage on two different levels. On the first one, the energy is diverted towards agonists so that they can contract muscles. In contrast, energy diverted to the second level frees the muscles that were supposed to expand for movement to occur. That way, we increase the efficiency of converting energy into labor and, thus, lower entropy.
