I’ll never forget the day my back pain started… I was only 15 years old and was playing basketball when I took a nasty fall and injured my spine. Actually, I broke a small bone on one of my vertebrae.
To someone who’s never suffered with chronic and debilitating back pain, it’s hard to explain just how awful the feeling is. To wake up, every single day of your life and never have the opportunity to really feel good… well, it’s really something I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
And yet, thousands and thousands of people endure pain like this day in and day out. For them, there’s no escaping it no matter what they try.
In an effort to find relief for my pain, I tried just about every available therapy and treatment there is.
I tried massage therapy, pain medicine, acupuncture, ultra sound, electric stimulation, the “sheets of exercises,” yoga, chiropractic, pilates, a stress relief therapy called alphabiotics and even Kinesis Myofacial Integration, offered at a whopping $125 per session.
I drew the line at surgery. But other than that, I tried anything and everything to get some lasting relief from my pain.
The best I could get was relief that was temporary. If the treatments stopped, the pain returned. Temporary relief simply wasn’t enough.
And then I met a person that would forever change the course of my life. It is because of this person that my back pain ended… almost like he was magic.
In fact, if you’re reading this and you’re not suffering from back pain, you probably won’t believe me. And that’s fine, because what I have is really not for you.
But if you’re a person who wakes up each and every day of your life to more back pain, then you’re probably going to keep reading. Because you know that even the longest journey in search of relief will be totally worth it when your back pain is gone forever.
And that’s why, at the risk of having you think I’m crazy, I’m going to tell you the story of how I ended my back pain.
After years and years of searching, it was over in about 17 minutes. And in just a moment, I’m going to introduce you to the man who showed me the secret way to do it.
But first, there’s something very important you need to understand so that everything I’m about to tell you makes sense.
Most medical and healthcare professionals don’t even know what I’m about to share with you. If they did, they’d spend their time addressing the cause of back pain instead of just the symptoms.
As weird as it sounds, you don’t end back pain by concentrating on the pain. For real and lasting relief, you need to understand the reason the pain is there.
Without that knowledge, you’re going to spend the rest of your life in search of what, at best, will be temporary relief for your pain.
That’s the reason that things like acupuncture, chiropractic and massage don’t offer lasting relief for your back pain. Those things help to address the symptoms, but not the true cause.
You might think that a car has nothing to do with back pain, but stick with me here. I’ll explain the connection in just a moment.
When a car is “out of alignment,” that means the car isn’t really balanced. And if nothing is done to resolve the imbalance, a lot of bad things can go wrong.
The most obvious symptom is that your tires are going to wear unevenly. Eventually, one of them might become so worn that it blows out. What started as a simple imbalance can turn into a very dangerous situation.
This is exactly what is happening in your body to cause back pain. Over time, the muscles in your body become imbalanced.
Except with the human body, you aren’t able to look inside and spot the early warning signs like you can on a car.
Most people with back pain have no idea that the real cause is the game of “tug-of-war” raging inside their bodies.
Because of the way most of us live and move through our day, we create what you might call “imbalances” in our muscles. In other words, we start to use certain muscles more than others.
Eventually, your “strong” muscles start tugging on your “weak” muscles and pulling unevenly on your joints, ligaments and tissues.
This “tug-of-war” creates small little injuries throughout the affected area. If nothing is done to resolve the imbalance, those small injuries become big injuries most of us are familiar with, like a herniated disk or sciatica.
One day, you bend down to pick up something you dropped on the floor and WHAM!, you throw your back out.
But you don’t “throw your back out” because you bend down to pick something up off the floor. You throw your back out because the imbalance in your body gets so bad that the simple act of bending over creates a huge amount of pain.
Go to a doctor and tell them about your back pain, and you’ll probably just get a prescription for medication. Or even worse, they’ll start talking about surgery.
By now, hopefully it’s clear that the only answer mainstream medicine has for back pain is to deal with the symptoms. They don’t even mention (probably because they don’t know) anything about the real cause!
So congratulations. At this point, you probably know more about the real cause of back pain than your doctor. And you discovered it without spending years and years in medical school.
But just because you know the cause doesn’t mean that the solution is obvious. It certainly wasn’t obvious to me… Read more…
