From Pain To Play

This is our foundation program guiding our athletes to Health which must occur before one is fit. Generally, our clients’ goals are pain relief, weight loss, or overcoming performance blocks in sport.

How It Works:

We use the ZHealth Performance Solutions unique 8 Step Model that is backed by the latest research in neuroscience to arrive and individualize each client/athlete’s solution to their challenges or goals. At the foundation of our coaching is Behavioral Modification.

Below are the key areas to understanding the techniques

The
Brain

The Brain – The Brain has two primary functions;

  • Survival
  • Movement

The brain via the nervous system does three primary things:

  • Receives input (from the visual, vestibular and proprioceptive systems)
  • Decides what the input means and what to do about it (Integration/Processing)
  • Creates motor output (Acting on the input)

Pain is 100% of the time an output of the brain. This does NOT mean that peripheral receptors and tissues are uninvolved, but it does mean that these tissues can only send DANGER signals to the brain.

Pain is a decision or constructs made by the brain based on the perception of threat.

Action
Signal

Pain is THREAT/ACTION signal not an indicator of damage.

It is produced when the brain perceives danger to body tissues exists and action is required. Pain is part of the survival system; thus, any threat can be interpreted as dangerous and results in pain signals.

This an example of threats that can lead to a threat overload and an output of pain.

  • Work Stress
  • Relationships
  • Poor Balance
  • Poor Movement Patterns
  • Poor Nutrition
  • Poor Sleep Patterns
  • Exercise
  • Poor Visual Skills

An overload of these threats can produce an output of pain.

Pain is Individual:

The Pain neuromatrix is individual specific which means that there is a wide variability in which cortical areas are activated to produce pain between individuals.

Everyone responds differently from the same stimuli. For Example. Two people being struck by the same force in the same area will often have two different internal experiences

Getting Started

An initial assessment is given, below is what is included. Request your assessment today with our enquire form.

  • Comprehensive assessment of Athlete’s Nervous System using the ZHealth 8 Levels Model
  • Implement each Athlete’s program using the ZHealth 9S Athletic Development Model
  • Each session is constant monitoring of the athlete’s nervous system to make sure every exercise or drill and the dose/reps are optimizing the athlete’s nervous system thus we are personalizing every dose/rep of exercise or drill to the athlete’s nervous system
  • Every session is about personalize2optimize the athlete’s nervous system so they are always moving in the direction towards their goal as quickly as possible
