SOLVING BACK AND NECK PAIN
I have been treating patients since 2001, but it was not until I hurt my own back I realized most of what I had been taught was wrong. Many of the treatments just didn't work and if I am being honest, most made me feel worse. This failure was not from lack of trying or lack of education, I spend tens of thousands of dollars on experts and specialists who all had the best of intentions to heal my back pain but in the end they all failed. This expansive journey was documented in the book, The Philosophical Physician and it lasted more than 5 years ending in the resolution of my back pain. As a result of my experience I completely changed my approach to treating patients and was now able to help more than 90% of every person that came into my clinic. Not every case was completely healed but more than 90% reported significant improvement with more than 80% achieving complete correction and a full recovery to post injury status. Over the years I treated thousands of people, maintaining clinical records and testimonials that support my claims. My reputation grew and I began seeing patients from all over the world, and although I became financially stable as a result of my efforts nothing was a powerful as the feeling of confidently knowing I could help someone who had lost all hope. I have provided this website to offer what I have learned in order to help. Perhaps you or someone you know is currently suffering from back or neck pain? If you take the time to study the information I am providing here you can utilize my 20 plus years of experience and hopefully not make the same mistakes I made. Although the information provided on this website recommended is primarily designed for self treatment, this does not exclude the importance of working with a physician to insure correct diagnosis and that the approach is safe for you. My protocols are designed to treat mechanical back pain sometimes these conditions can coexist with more sinister diseases such as cancers therefore it is vitally important to work with your doctor and get the correct diagnosis. All information provided on this website is therefore done so for information purposes only.
THE REAL CAUSE OF BACK PAIN
How can it be possible that most doctors do not understand the true cause of back and neck pain? Like many people you have been told that the problem with your pain is a specific condition like, Degenerated Disc Disease, Spondylolisthesis, Herniated or Bulging Discs, Sciatica Leg Pain, Stenosis, Arthritis and Scoliosis Spinal Curvature. In 1996 doctors Vert Mooney, MD, Jeffery A Saal MD and Joel S Saal, MD discovered the cause for more than 80% of all back, neck and sciatica pain was the loss of the "Pump Mechanism". I am willing to bet that most readers, doctors included, have never heard of the pump mechanism. The spinal disc gets nutrition from a mechanical process called the "Pump Mechanism". This happens naturally in a healthy spine from normal movement. It is similar to applying pressure to a wet sponge, the spinal disc is able to move fluid (nutrition) in and out of the tissues which maintains a healthy structure. Injuries to the spinal disc damage the delicate blood vessels that feed the disc nutrition and stimulate the pump mechanism. When this pump mechanism fails a disc is unable to transfer nutrition into the cells and it enters a chronic cycle of degeneration, bulging and inflammation which eventually leads to stenosis (end stage arthritis). Without this constant supply of blood the discs become ischemic. As the disc continues to degenerate it will leak inflammatory chemicals that produce pain and further injury to surrounding tissues. This is a progressive, degenerative condition.
