What is the Neuroplasticity Gym?
An app based on clinically successful neurological reprogramming classes designed to decrease chronic pain and increase athletic performance. These programs instruct you how to disengage protective patterns and rewire the longstanding effects of central sensitization, which presents as physical pain. Pain is an effect of the brain’s processing of aberrant sensory input. To change pain, the Neuroplasticity Gym helps you change sensory input and monitors changes in your brain by guiding you through daily assignments in 1 of our 5, 30-day programs at a time.
The key to this program is focus. A wearable electroencephalogram (EEG) measures your focus while you endure postural isometrics for lengthening periods of time. You, the participant will learn to settle into these uncomfortable but stable positions through our functional meditation approach. As your focus emerges, the brain can adapt to new inputs through the neuroplastic process of rewiring new inputs together and solidifying your efforts into new motor programs.
Functional meditation is sensorimotor integration practice where an individual endures specific, static, multi-joint positions for long durations with the purpose of sending high-threshold sensory signals to the brain to achieve a neuroplastic adaptation. We hold developmental infant milestone and specific end-range positions for a long time until our brain remembers how to do it again.
Who is it for?
Anyone who has had trouble getting rid of chronic pain, especially people who have tried different treatments, rehab programs and surgeries which haven’t helped.
Athletes trying to get an edge on their opponents by detailing reactive stability and ensuring proper joint centration for delivery of power from the ground to the appropriate object or surface.
Coaches who wish to lead their athletes or clients in a safe and effective stand alone program or as a pre-activation series to use prior to training.
The goals of the app and its programs.
When applied correctly, the result is a decrease in pain, an increase in motor control, increase in focus and resiliency towards future episodes on chronic pain.
A) To decrease pain, the theory by updating the brain’s sensory map through neuroplastic remodeling of peripheral and central sensitization. By modeling innate infant movement milestone positions, the individual can open windows of learning and drive synaptic plasticity. This can be accomplished through focused and motivated regular practice. Goal is to send movement (bending, moving, breathing) inputs to the brain to escort pain inputs. Brain will receive an updated sensory signature from the body which helps stability patterns to re-emerge.
B) To increase motor control, we focus on recruitung high threshold motor units through intramuscular coordination. We also encourage intermuscular coordination to bridge weak links in the kinetic chain challenged through each isometric position. We also aim to affect the sensory map of the body in the brain. Your sensory map records injury inputs from the past. Clear out old, out of date information so your brain senses a true real-time representation of your sensory environment.
C) We are training our focus while increasing variable complexity of certain positions. Pain can shift our attention from our prefrontal cortex, which observes things as they are. When the attention shifts, it can lead to increased activation of the limbic system which can pull up previous stressful experiences and cause an increase the sympathetic system. As our focus improves, our body can maintain a parasympathetic response to pain. This can help gain more astute awareness.
D) The body maintains postural loading and resists the need to protect, which can de-centrate joints. This allows efficient dynamic stability and reactive stability by disarming the brains protective mechanisms on the body.
