How to Choose the Right Help (& Avoid the Wrong Help)

Uncategorized Oct 15, 2020

You’re hell-bent on getting out of pain…

 

...the sleepless nights, the nagging aches (that strike at the worst times), and the constant search for relief have you past your boiling point.

 

So who do you turn to? The right resource could get you out of pain once and for all. The wrong resource could deplete your insurance, sap your savings, and even amplify your pain.

 

And frankly, there’s no one in your corner to point you in the right direction. Why go to your physician if they’re just going to send you to someone else? Can the chiropractor your sister raves about actually help you? What’s the difference between massage therapy, physical therapy, and personal training?

 

Before you scour Google, dissect Yelp, or schedule an appointment, read on to choose the right help...

 

Chiropractors Are a Great Starting Point for Neck & Back Pain

 

In many states, a chiropractor is considered a 1st-line practitioner. In other...

Darwin Weighs In On Pain Relief

 

Betcha didn’t know the world’s most famous naturalist actually knew a thing or two about solving pain... 

 

In fact, his philosophy behind pain-relief is much stronger (and more successful) than the laid-back physical therapy, revolving door of drugs, and questionable “quick fixes” most other medical professionals push. 

 

Darwin’s words, not mine: 

 

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is the most adaptable to change.”

 

Let’s unpack how this nugget of wisdom applies to the human body and the chronic pain you’re all too familiar with...

 

Darwin’s Philosophy On Pain Relief, Explained

 

In layman’s terms, Darwin said survival requires adaptation. 

 

How does that apply to pain relief?

 

Most people suffering from pain seek, or are prescribed, quick fixes, short-term solutions,...

Are You Standing In the Doorway of Illness?

Being well isn’t enough… and it never will be.

 

It’s a pricey booby trap brimming with myths, misconceptions, and lies at every turn. 

 

All “wellness’ means is you’re not sick… yet. You’ll always be plagued by problems and riddled with pain navigating life’s battlefield if you focus solely on wellness.

 

Be warned: If you want to survive... get well. If you want to survive and thrive... get fit. 

 

Here’s what I mean...

 

Our Country’s Massive Wellness “Problem”

 

Our country has become so “medicalized” that wellness is our gold standard of health. But wellness is simply a small step above sick. And every step backward is another opportunity for money-hungry medical professionals to strike by prescribing drugs, surgeries, or injections that they can cash in on... 

 

Sure, these solutions get you relief. But does it last? Rarely. The medical...

How Working From Home Is Destroying Your Back (& The Quick Fix)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

 

Sitting is killing you.

 

And now more than ever, we’re all doing a dangerous amount of sitting around.

 

That’s not to say sitting alone is the kiss of death. Nor am I suggesting your recliner, couch, or office chair are the only covert culprits stirring up back pain. But sitting for hours on end isn’t doing your back, your hips, or your body, any favors.

 

From the moment the younger you graduated from crawling to stumbling to standing, you never looked back. You recognized your body was built to stand and barring something catastrophic, it still is. 

 

In fact, nowadays, I imagine crawling would leave you stuck, stiff, and sore — if you could even safely make your way to the ground.

 

So it’s no coincidence standing is the end game. 

 

We’re all built to stand — and that never changes, no matter how much we do. The more we sit and the...

Akinesis is the Pandemic

What’s more dangerous: Akinesis or the pandemic?

 

Both are sources of pain, suffering, and ultimately, death.

 

Top neurologists in Europe claim akinesis — also known as lack of movement — is killing you. 

 

Scary, right? 

 

All that sitting around and scrolling on your phone could literally be the secret source of your chronic pain. And over time, it’s not impossible that your lack of movement could kill you.

 

Let that sink in…

 

Plain and simple: You hurt because you’re stuck in one place. 

 

If you’re in chronic pain — no matter how agonizing or stubborn — you need to get up and move. It could literally save your life.

 

Move Your Way Out of Pain

 

The only way you stay healthy — and out of pain —  is by getting a little uncomfortable every day. You need to find activities that challenge you physically and get your blood flowing.

7 Things You Should Already Know About Your Body (That Nobody Tells You)

 

Let’s take a trip down memory lane…

Rewind back to high school: Remember shop class? If your curriculum was like mine, you can tear down a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower with ease. How about Home Ec? Yours truly can still sew a cuff (and bake cookies) if put to the test.

Meanwhile, even the simplest lessons about the human body seemed to be completely skipped over for things like tag and red rover.

The truth is we spent more time in our younger days learning useless life skills than we did learning about the one thing that matters most in this life: Your body.

Crazy, right?

Well-educated adults can go their whole lives knowing nothing about the knee pain they battle daily, the cramps that strike out of nowhere, the foods that drain their  brain, and the shoes destroying their back. 

These are all things we should have been taught by 6th grade.

So let’s flip the script and get you up to speed right here, right now...

6 Secrets Your Doctor Doesn’t Want You To Know About Your Pain

 

The medical system has no incentive to help you really get better.  In fact, just the opposite.  The Big Med System is actually a sick care system.  Motivated by money and that money comes from caring for the sick not the healthy.   

The medical system has zero incentive to help you get better…

In fact, just the opposite. 

The big med system is actually a sick-care system. Meaning they want you to be sick, so they can make money.

The truth (that you’re not supposed to know) is today’s medical system is solely motivated by money. And that money comes from treating the sick — that’s why they provide short-term fixes like drugs and injections, rather than permanent solutions to keep you healthy for the long-haul.

Now that you have a preview of what’s to come, let’s cut to the chase…

Is Your Skin the Secret Source of Pain?

 

Let’s be real...

There’s nothing more frustrating than spending all kinds of time and money on physical therapy only to have your all-too-familiar pain continue to rear its ugly head.

The stretching, exercises, and massages are a hassle. But you do as you're told and expect results. 

If you’re like most of the clients who come my way after disappointing bouts of physical therapy (or failed drugs, injections, and surgeries), you may have experienced some relief or improvement, but your pain never went away for good.

What gives?

Therapy, drugs, and other common quick-fixes almost always skip over one of the most common — yet covert — sources of pain: Your skin.

And treating the outcome instead of the source puts you on the fast-track back to suffering.

The truth is the most overlooked source of pain in physical therapy is your skin. 

Let me explain...
