Milton Cohen, a rheumatologist speaks of pain and how Feldenkrais ‘exploits’ neuro-plasticity. He suggests we do not have a ‘hard wired Nervous System’. Being ‘soft wired promotes the ability to learn and change. He suggests that to best work with pain you want to move away from the problem and work with the whole person. A Feldenkrais Program offers a useful process in spite of the pain, although it takes prolonged contact with a practitioner.
