The purpose of my free E-book is to open the reader to new possibilities of where back pain can come from. When people are young we often don’t think of the choices we make and their consequences. We just live life. From the ages of 30 years and more that catches up to you. For better or worse we are the product of our past eating and living habits. Now is the time to start thinking of diet and exercise as a means to end pain and live again without pain. Everyone who CONFIRMS their email will get the book and I will follow up with you to see how you are doing.
As for the 7 Strategies I learned to reduce back pain here they are.. some of them are not included in the book so read carefully.
1. Inflammation is your bodies response to an abnormal condition in the body. This often exacerbates the painful condition you have already. The book tells you what to look out for as well as what foods to eat. Personally I choose Heal and Soothe as a method of controlling inflammation.
2. Medications are there for immediate relief. However they only cover up the problem and when their effects subside, the inflammation and the conditions that made inflammatory pain in the first place come back. Did you know that prednisone, a steroid, when taken for a long time no matter what the dosage is will leach calcium from your bones causing them to be brittle. In turn, your vertebrae may become brittle enough to fracture while supporting your body weight causing more pain. Anti-inflammatory agents like ibuprofen will make swelling go down but what caused the swelling in the first place? Was it gluten, dairy, injury or another food that you may have become allergic to? Learning to find the foods to avoid and those to consume are a focus of my book.
3. Stretching in any form will promote pain reduction. Yoga is a prime example of what to incorporate into your life. If you are not into a full blown Yoga routine then try this: Stretch first thing in the morning, when you get home from work and while watching TV (or any other period of time while at rest). This will allow your muscles to relax, relieve tension and prevent trigger points. My book covers a brief stretching routine to do whenever you have time (who can’t spare 10-15 minutes a day?).
4. Finding the right Chiropractor. If you are looking at the cost of finding a healthcare provider like this then you really need to look at how much you value your health. It took me a long time to find the chiropractor I like. It even takes a longer time for them to be effective. This is because every person’s condition is different. The time it takes for a practitioner to learn your spine and the adjustments to take hold have different conditions that need to be met. Bottom line, finding a chiropractor is vital to spinal health it is even more vital to see the same chiropractor and follow their recommendations to have a positive impact on your spine.
5. Finding the right massage therapist. Just like the Chiropractor this person can be elusive if you are not specific to what you are looking for. Besides the fact that you are sore and you just want to feel good try this: During your next massage and they are hitting those “really sore” spots ask what muscle they are working. Then ask your Chiropractor how that could relate to your back pain. Chances are they may explain it to you and tell you what other muscles you should exercise or have massaged. Learning your body in this manner will help you with other therapists so that they may better understand your condition and reduce your pain.
6. Myo-Facial Release is the best technique I have found to remove trigger points and wake up stubborn muscles. This will also remove pain. I am telling you that learning how to perform this technique is better than any pain medication you can find. I do this all the time anywhere I can. The first thing to do, find someone who practices this technique and learn what you need to do. Then learn what muscles to stabilize. Finally learn what you need to do for strength in these areas.
7. Read my book. I know that sounds like a selfish concept but I assure you it is not. The last thing, if any, we were taught in school was how to take care of our bodies. My book promotes a new line of thinking and what anyone should do to reduce back pain or any type of pain in their life. Pain reduction is all about viewing diet and exercise in a new light.
