I just spoke to my mom the other day who has been battling back pain for over a decade now… in fact, it was her initial bout of back pain all those years ago that drove me to find a solution.
I remember thinking “there had to be a better way” and boy was I right. Anyway, she was telling me about a procedure that her doctor recommended and the first thing that jumped out at me was she was willing to do the “quick and easy” treatment before committing to the harder, but more effective alternatives.
While this particular treatment may be effective, the fact is it’s not a sure thing, there are potential side effects, and like most common treatments, it does NOT do anything to address what created the condition in the first place.
Yet she was sold on the idea and placed it higher on her to do list then two other treatments I recommended that were “harder” but had little or no negative side effects.
Now part of this may be because her “doctor” recommended it but part of it is also human nature… we tend to always look for the “easy way” and while this may be good in some situations, it’s bad when it comes to health because most of the time, the quick and easy way is not the most effective… and it’s also often the method which has the most cons or side effects.
As I’ve said many times before, every persons situation is different and the combination of treatments that works for one person may not work for another.
And while my mom has made good progress using my Lose The Back Pain system and other treatments I have recommended to her, she still is not 100%… plus it doesn’t help that she recently slipped and fell (again).
Like most people, she’s looking for that “one thing” that will finally put an END to her pain… but what I’ve found over all these years working with so many people is that it’s pretty rare that just one thing will eliminate all of your pain.
Sometimes it happens, but more often what does the trick is a combination of treatments and therapies… and the more specific they are to your physical situation (the muscle imbalances you have, the condition you’ve been diagnosed with, your emotional state, etc) the better the results you’ll see.
So here’s my list of the
“Top 10 Back Pain Treatments”:
1. Mind-Body Therapy
(hypnosis, emotional freedom therapy – this is far bigger than most people realize)
2. Muscle Balance Therapy
(corrective exercises, stretches, muscle work)
8. Trigger Point Therapy
9. Acupuncture / Acupressure
(ancient treatment proven to help with all sorts of conditions)
10. Massage Therapy
(can be great if done correctly and therapist knows your body)
(gotta get deep sleep and enough of it)
12. Healthy Eating
(no, a salad at McDonalds is NOT eating healthy)
13. Change How You Sit
(for those of us who sit for too long)
So, it’s more than 10… but top 10 sounds better…
If you are sitting there right now with pain and have not tried all of the above, get to work. And if you have tried them all, which is highly unlikely, then let me know and I’ll give you a list of even more treatments.
The point is this, the people who get lasting relief are the ones who DON’T STOP until they find the answer. You must be relentless if you want to beat this.
I know it’s not easy but you CAN do this… you, and all others, have the power and ability to heal yourself but it requires determination, focus, hard work, patience, perseverance and most importantly, ACTION. So what are you going to do to make this happen?
Remember, I and the rest of my team are here for you… as well as the thousands of others who visit and share on our discussion forum.
Go make it happen… and I can’t wait to hear of your success!
P.S. I love you mom (yes, she reads my email newsletters)
