Beck Institute

Pennsylvania

Cognitive behavior therapy focuses on helping clients solve current problems and get better as quickly as possible. The Beck Institute strives to foster highly supportive, compassionate, and collaborative relationships with clients and to tailor treatment to their particular difficulties and preferences. Clients learn specific techniques to change their unhelpful thinking, behavior, and emotional responses — skills they can use for the rest of their life to overcome their current difficulties and to stay better.

Reboot -- This Way Up

The pain system involves all of our body’s systems and is a sensible and necessary system that functions to protect our bodies from a perceived threat. Pain changes the way we move, think and behave, so that we take the necessary steps vital for healing or safety.

Sometimes the pain system can be ‘faulty’ and act in unusual ways. Chronic pain or persistent pain is pain that lasts longer than 3 months – beyond the healing period of tissue damage. This generally means that you experience pain despite having no new damage to the tissue. Pain does however impact on your ability to carry out your normal activities, whether these are at home or work, or in social or recreational settings.

People with chronic pain will face different problems and barriers that prevent them from living their normal lifestyle, and stop them from achieving their goals.

In order to help you with these barriers we have developed our Chronic Pain Course in conjunction with the Department of Pain Medicine at St Vincent’s Hospital, Sydney. The course takes a multidisciplinary approach to pain management and is based on the effective Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) model. In this course you will learn CBT skills to help better manage your chronic pain and improve your quality of life.

The Egoscue Method

New York, California, Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Texas, Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee

When trapped in chronic pain, it can seem like you’ll never feel better and be able to live the life you want—especially if you’ve tried other therapies and drug-based treatments that only worked temporarily or not at all.

To feel better, you need to focus on the source of your pain.

While most chronic pain treatment methods only address symptoms or try to deaden or mask pain, Egoscue corrects the postural issues that are at the root of your ongoing discomfort. Thousands of people just like you have ditched the pills, found an alternative to surgery, and finally feel better for good.

Welcome to The Egoscue Method.

Functional Movement Training Centre (FMTC)

Brisbane, Australia

The Functional Movement Training Centre 

The methodology of Movement Therapy evolved from purely clinical beginnings. Dr David Johnson’s unique awareness of movement proficiency and development of the biomechanics of NeuroHAB defined functional movement, together with his Neurosurgery and spinal surgery practice, allowed the puzzle pieces to be put together to create a clear understanding of why, on a global scale back pain rehabilitation is failing. Incidence, prevalence, and recurrence of back pain symptoms are escalating, being amongst the nations highest economic health burdens. The primary reason for failure to control this epidemic is the misguided approach of targeting back pain symptoms and not the root of the disease which is movement dysfunction. The vast majority of therapies don’t have a definition or a mechanism of correcting the disease of Movement Dysfunction. THIS SETS US APART!
