Most people deal with some form of chronic pain. More than 80% of Americans will suffer from back pain during their life. I know that if you are suffering from chronic pain of any kind, the longer you suffer the worse it gets. Many people are frustrated with all the different treatment plans and gadgets that promise to reduce, or at least reduce the pain.
Why can’t I stop my pain?
Most people that are trying to stop your pain are really looking at the symptoms and not the cause. In other words, if your low back is hurting, most people will work on your low back. That is the problem. Usually, low back pain is caused by the muscles on the front of your legs. This is what separates me from all the others promising to help you out.
What can I do to help myself?
There are many things you can do and most of them will be things you may not have ever heard before. This will require you to have an open mind and look at your body in a different way. I will discuss why changing your understanding is important and how you can be a part of your recovery.
Why should you listen to me?
I have been a chronic pain sufferer. 16 years ago I suffered from low back pain for almost a year. Like you, I tried everything and nothing seemed to work. Then one of my mentors suggested with my muscle knowledge, that I should figure it out on my own. I have been pain-free for 15 years. I am a licensed massage therapist and an Aging Sciences graduate. I am also in my late fifties and live pain-free. I have helped people reduce and even stop their pain for the last 13 years.
In this blog, we will look at various types of chronic pain, the importance of stretching, and things you can do to help yourself. If you are motivated to help yourself, then this blog will be right for you. Welcome aboard!
