You wake up every day with some sort of ache or pain in your body. You can’t run down the street. You can’t sit for more than fifteen minutes. You can’t play your favorite sport because you hurt. Don’t just treat the symptom, find the source and find a real solution to your persistent pain. You will get a glimpse into some real patient stories to find out the true origin of their symptoms—as well as the surprising nature of where that source lies. To further reinforce the idea that we treat the cause of your problem and not just the symptoms, examples of creative and integrative treatment ideas are presented at the end of each chapter. This book is about helping save people from suffering unnecessary persistent pain by providing them with the knowledge and resources that put them back in control of their own bodies. Don’t you deserve a holistic and integrated way of finding out why you hurt? Empower yourself, take back control of your body and find a lasting solution to your persistent pain.
