Pain Care Yoga for Chronic Low Back Pain
If you suffer from chronic low back pain, you are in good company. It’s the leading cause of disability world wide. CLBP (chronic low back pain) often leads sufferers to seek help from many different health care practitioners, chiropractors, massage therapists etc… Many of these things may help but not as much as you have hoped and perhaps only temporarily. There is hope though.
Pain Care Yoga for Chronic Low Back Pain is an evidence based 8 week series designed to help you move better and live better. Yoga can be a game changer in combination with your other treatments and medications and may even help you need them less over time.
How is this different than what I have tried before?
Pain Care Yoga for Chronic Low Back Pain is a wholistic approach to developing a pain care program that is as unique as you are. Pain is about so much more than just tissue damage, it encompasses every aspect of you biologically, neurologically, emotionally, socially. We know that pain changes everything. What you will discover is that the opposite is true as well, everything changes pain.
Pain Care Yoga takes an evidence based biopsychosocial approach. You will address the health of your tissues, the role of your nervous system and even the environmental aspects of your pain. Modern pain science supports a wholistic approach to healing. This program provides the tools and strategies that you need to get back ot your life.
This approach offers you the thing you’ve been wanting since your pain began. Control.
The Four Pillars of Evidence Informed Pain Care
It’s the most important thing about having a body. It hurts now, but improvement is POSSIBLE!
Understanding your pain and your role in healing is the first step. Knowledge is power.
Gaining awareness is an important step toward moving with confidence and away from fear.
I stumbled across the chronic back pain workshop shortly after medical professionals told me they couldn’t see anything to validate my back pain. I was beginning to believe that I’d have to live the rest of my life in pain. I’m in my early 30s, so the thought of 50+ years living in pain was overwhelming and depressing. Mandy taught me so much about chronic pain and gave me the tools to help manage it. I’m a firm believer now that mind body and soul are all connected and equally important. I’m doing things again that bring me joy- working out, playing with my children and cooking – all things that were put on hold when I would experience a pain flare up. My quality of life has drastically improved since completing Mandy’s program!
The results have been life changing. I still have pain, but I now have tools and strategies to address them that I did not have before. I am so grateful for Mandy. She is very understanding and nonjudgmental and very good at sharing her knowledge. I learned so much and no longer fear that my pain will eventually cripple me. I have gained a new respect for yoga… and just in case anyone is wondering the class does not have anything to do with healing crystals. LOL !!! When I initially signed up I was worried that the class would involve some weird alternative medicine stuff, turned out to be the opposite. I would highly recommend the class to any lower back pain sufferers.
I have chronic/persistent pain in my lower back and numbness in my left leg. Since starting the program with Mandy, the improvement is remarkable. I was unable to stand, walk, and move consistently. I have learned to view the spine and brain as a system. Mandy teaches simple movements in class that can be used safely and easily in everyday life – it has changed the way I relate to and experience pain. The movements are introduced gradually throughout the course. I’ve learned how the brain’s relationship with pain can be modified via neuroplasticity. It’s liberating! I’m extremely grateful for this class and look forward to it every week. I’m lucky to have found the Pain Care Yoga for Chronic Low Back Pain with Mandy. Highly recommended!
