Got back pain?
Tried treatment without success?
Relief might be closer than you think.
Try these ten things before resorting to surgery.
There's a new science to back pain beyond stretches, rest, and pain killers.
You may have developed a habitual pain response, which can be retriggered by both physical and mental stresses.
While we consciously feel pain on one side of our bodies, the primitive base of our brain maps pain responses to both sides of the body. These responses can continue to plague us until we track down their initial cause and effect. But once we do, chronic unresolved pain can ease entirely.
In this short, researched book, Dr. Maloney explains how habitual pain responses can be caused by both physical and emotional triggers.These triggers form a map of your pain, and finding that map can lead to results when nothing else will work.
When he was twelve years old, Christopher Maloney found out he had a "bad back." But decades later Dr. Christopher Maloney, N.D., doesn't live in chronic pain. He has worked for years to discover solutions beyond the conventional.
In the process, Dr. Maloney discovered a map of back pain. He has used that map to help hundreds of people with back pain and now shares the map with the world.
Before he became a doctor, Dr. Maloney gave massages to friends and family members. In clinic, he became a sought-after last resort for unrelieved back and neck pain. As Dr. Maloney went into practice, he found that bodywork done over time with patient participation resulted in far better outcomes. In the process, patients released habitual responses that had troubled them for years.
Healing Your Back of Chronic Pain contains the research behind Dr. Maloney's treatment of the back. It discusses the shortcomings of existing treatments and suggests combining treatments for better results. Dr. Maloney gives an overview of his map of the back, along with patient examples that worked. Then he gives advice on how to map your own back.
Ever a realist, Dr. Maloney ends his book with ten things patients should try before resorting to surgery. Short, researched, and direct, Healing Your Back of Chronic Pain combines classic common sense with cutting edge research. By the time patients finish Healing Your Back of Chronic Pain, they should know why their current treatments haven't worked long-term, how to combine treatments, and at come away with at least one new idea for relieving their back pain.
