Current Woman: How does movement help to heal?
Dr. Marc Pérez: when you have suffered an injury or trauma, you must bandage and avoid movement. But 90% of the pain we suffer from is due to a lack of mobility, elasticity and oxygenation of the tissues. They are said to be functional, they have no specific causes, such as a shock or a blow. These are postural disorders, bad positions. Movement helps stretch and re-oxygenate tissue. It is necessary to consult your doctor before starting the exercises to check that there is no serious pathology
How to move when the area is painful?
You have to go very gradually. Practice a warm-up when the joint is still stiff and end the session with stretching .
How can we act on organs like the lungs which are not muscles?
The viscera (kidneys, lung …) are oxygenated by arteries which generally remain at rest. As soon as you move, you increase the flow in the kidneys, you increase the respiratory rate, the cardiac beats. It feels like bodybuilding. Exaggerated rest is bad for the body, it ankyloses and lowers blood flow.
