Today\u2019s guest is 佩里·尼克尔斯顿（Perry Nickelston）. \u00a0Perry is a chiropractic physician with a primary focus 上 performance enhancement, corrective exercise, and metabolic fitness nutrition. \u00a0He is certified and trained as a Functional Movement Specialist (FMS) and Selective Functional Movement Assessment Specialist (SFMA).\u00a0 Perry is a master fitness trainer with over 25 years of experience in the industry, and runs the \u201cStop Chasing Pain\u201d podcast. I\u2019ve personally been 上 a journey for some time in the realms of corrective exercise and \u201cactivation\/reset\u201d based therapeutic means for helping the body achieve its original, or optimal, patterning.\u00a0 At a Neurokinetic Therapy seminar (I completed level 1 and 2), which was a really great course, a name that frequently came up at the seminar was 佩里·尼克尔斯顿（Perry Nickelston）.\u00a0 Ever since, I\u2019ve been looking into Dr. Perry\u2019s work, how I can better integrate concepts of corrective exercise into my own work, and also how these concepts tie into sport performance. This show has great ideas for any strength coach engaging in the host of modern corrective and activation based performance paradigms.\u00a0 It also has important implications that originate in therapy, but stretch out into every aspect of full-blown athletic performance programming.\u00a0 On the show today, we\u2019ll discuss ideas of \u201cthe core\u201d, pain science, the minimal dose in treatment and corrective exercise, making corrective exercise more \u201csticky\u201d, and more.

Key Points: \tPerry\u2019s background \tWhat is the core really when it comes to athletic function and movement \tWhat the science is saying about what pain actually is \tWhy Perry doesn\u2019t inflict pain in his treatment methods \tFactors that make corrective exercise stick and change technique over time \tThe minimum effective dose in rehab and corrective exercise \tFunction, dis-function and the nocebo effect \tThe brain, safety, and performance \u201cPain is the last thing you feel in any injury mechanism that\u2019s not traumatic\u201d \u201cHuman beings naturally like to overcomplicate everything\u201d \u201cPain is not correlated to the amount of tissue damage that you have\u201d \u201cYou can decrease someone\u2019s pain by the nature of how you talk to them, how you touch them\u201d \u201cI don\u2019t really care if you feel better after (treatment), what I\u2019m looking for is \u201cdoes it last\u201d, because anything can make a temporary change 上 your nervous system, but if it doesn\u2019t stick, to me it\u2019s useless, and what I\u2019m finding is, the harder you go 上 your nervous system but the more it pushes back.\u00a0 Not when I\u2019m working 上 somebody, I don\u2019t inflict any pain or any discomfort 上 any of the releases or movements that I\u2019m doing\u201d \u201cIf you inflict pain 上 your body when I\u2019m trying to teach you a different movement pattern, it won\u2019t let you learn it.\u00a0 Pain takes you into survival mode, and habit and compensation\u201d \u201cIf your nervous system and your brain feel threat in any way, it shuts off learning. Period.\u201d \u201cI don\u2019t even call it muscle testing anymore because the brain doesn\u2019t think like that, I call it pattern testing.\u00a0 I\u2019m looking for how your brain can pattern external force\u201d \u201cIf you want to be a success, whatever that means for you, you have to embrace the willingness to look stupid\u201d \u201cOne of the biggest things that helps (corrective exercise) stick is not doing too much, too hard, too soon\u201d \u201c(For fixing movement) I\u2019ll put you down 上 the ground, and I get you into these ground based movement patterns, where you feel safe and you feel stable, because that\u2019s where you learned to move in the first place\u201d \u201cWhen I make you move, I\u2019m looking at if your nervous system is freaking out\u201d \u201cI don\u2019t have a problem with the placebo effect\u2026. this placebo stuff is beyond ridiculous!\u201d \u201cI don\u2019t use the word stability anymore, I use the word safety.\u00a0 If your brain and your body feel safe, it\u2019ll let you do whatever the #$^@ you want to do!\u201d About 佩里·尼克尔斯顿（Perry Nickelston） 佩里·尼克尔斯顿（Perry Nickelston）, DC, NKT, FMS, SFMA, is a Chiropractic Physician with primary focus 上 Performance Enhancement, Corrective Exercise, and Metabolic Fitness Nutrition and trained from The American College of Addictionology and Compulsive Disorders.
