Why would a physical therapist spend time talking to you about what’s going on in your life, or what you’ve gone through in the past? Because your stored up emotional pain can cause physical pain. Your body registers and expresses all the stresses you’ve lived through and are living through today.
Besel Van Der Kolk, MD put it this way: The body keeps the score. Your physical pain is fueled by painful events you’re experiencing, and others that you’ve survived.
Kathi Fairbend, MS, RPT is able to listen in depth to your life story and connect the inner workings of your mind with what isn’t working so well with your body. She uses that knowledge of how your mind is defeating you, together with her incredible experience healing muscles and joints, to help free you from chronic pain, including neck and back pain, mobility problems and repetitive injuries.
