Neuroreflexive is another fancy word to say that your brain and body will protect you when you least expect it.  This is important to help yourself understand how your pain is impacting your ability to avoid surgery, play with your grandchildren, keep up and enjoy your retirement, and to “dream BIG, move BIG”!
