Encore: “The Comfort and Allure of Movement”- What We’ve Lost and How to Reconnect
June 29, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Trevor Campbell, MD, CCFP
Shauna Sky Romano, kinesiologist, athlete, and coach to elite athletes believes that “while the principles of high performance and science don’t change, the art is the application of those principles through movement, and the magic lies in developing a love for movement.” Her clients include people recovering from injuries as well as those with chronic pain and chronic disease. Exercise, of course has a central role in this, and the problem has always been durability, or how to get clients to maintain their exercise routines. A similar situation is also of course also seen with dietary advice, where, although the rationale for the prescribed diet is sound, adherence to the plan doesn’t always necessarily follow. So, what do we do? The traditional response is usually along the lines of getting therapists and coaches to come up with new and innovative motivational strategies. On the other hand, perhaps it’s simply time that our communal attitude towards exercise and movement needs to radically change. Also learn about the potential of dance therapy in health maintenance, chronic disease, and neuro-degenerative disorders. A lively and inspirational discussion that uncovers and contemplates possibility.

The podcast focuses on health rather than disease. The conversation centers on resilience and epigenetics, the study of how other factors like behaviors and environment can influence gene expression. It also highlights daily healthful behaviors and techniques that may reduce the progression and facilitate recovery from chronic physical and mental diseases including chronic pain, addictions and trauma.
Lastly, it highlights helpful usable technologies as well as education on current trending medical delivery issues such as over-investigation and over-diagnosis. The aim is to encourage and educate you to take a more active and holistic approach to your own wellbeing.
