The Pain Relief Secret: How to Retrain Your Nervous System, Heal Your Body, and Overcome Chronic Pain (Paperback)
You Can Heal from Chronic Pain
We've been sold a lie: The world tells us that pain is inevitable, that our bodies must break down as we age, and that there's nothing we can do about it. Researchers develop new drugs to manage our pain; surgeons dream up new techniques to repair worn-out joints. But we never truly feel better.
Here's the shocking truth: The vast majority of the pain that plagues our aging bodies is self-inflicted. It's caused by the way we use our bodies every day--the way we sit, the way we stand, the way we walk and run. But with simple exercises, anybody can learn to heal their chronic musculoskeletal pain, and prevent future pain, injury, and joint problems from developing.
The Pain Relief Secret explores the fascinating science of pain, and instructs readers in Clinical Somatics, a method of neuromuscular education that relieves chronic muscle tightness, restores natural posture and movement, and eliminates pain--all without medication or surgery. Students of Clinical Somatics have healed from chronic back pain, joint and nerve pain, scoliosis, and many other common pain conditions--all without medication or surgery.
Best of all, Clinical Somatics puts the power in your hands. You don't need special training or expensive repeat visits to a physical therapist. Clinical Somatics exercises are practiced on your own and in your very own home.
This is The Pain Relief Secret--your key to taking back your body from a lifetime of pain.
