Obstacles That Keep You In Chronic Pain
There may be three major obstacles keeping you in chronic pain – your doctor, your feet and maybe even you. This is why:
In general, there are two divergent philosophies in medicine today on how to treat patients in chronic pain:
The first model states that the body is unable to heal itself in the presence of the overwhelming dysfunctions that
chronic pain creates, and so it must be treated using drugs and surgery.
If your beliefs encompass this first model, you’re probably receiving pain management therapy(s) and consequently, you’re still in pain.
The second model states that the body is fully capable of healing itself if the obstacles are removed.
This is the model that I adhere to. If your beliefs also encompass this second model, what I’m about to say will be of great interest.
I know the following self-evident statements to be true:
The Obstacles That Keep You In Chronic Pain
Obstacle # 1 – Your Doctor
Doctors keep their knowledge current by reading medical journals. These journals state over and over that there’s no known unifying cause for ‘chronic pain syndrome’ hence the only acceptable treatment is by individually addressing your multitude of symptoms through drugs and surgery.
Because of what they’ve studied and the invasive treatments they practice, most traditional doctors don’t believe that your body can heal itself without their direct and often invasive intervention.
Their interventions are an exercise in futility.
Another exercise in futility is trying to change your doctor’s modus operandi. To illustrate my point; I’ll tell you one of my past experiences:
As a Diplomate of the American Academy of Pain Management: I spent many years lecturing at their annual meeting, emphatically stating that we, as medical professionals, are charged with eliminating chronic pain, not just managing it.
I got nowhere. The mindset of pain management was so deeply entrenched in traditional medicine that my message was ignored.
Twenty-five years later; little – if anything – has changed.
So what it comes down to is this: If you want to get rid of your chronic pain and you’re following your doctor’s advice, chances are good that you’re going to be living in pain for the rest of your life.
Obstacle # 2 – Your Feet
Your second obstacle to healing is lack of information on a common cause of chronic muscle and joint pain – the abnormal foot structures Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
These two inherited foot structures often create profound and debilitating pain symptoms throughout the body and can prevent your body from healing itself.
The Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity have a far-reaching effect because they adversely alter the function of your cerebellum (a part of the brain). The brain responds by distorting your posture. Your poor posture is what creates havoc in your entire body.
The only way to permanently correct your poor posture – which will allow your body to start healing itself – is by effectively treating your abnormal foot structure through Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
Is there an obstacle # 3?
That’s up to you. If you want to get well, you must be willing to step out of the traditional medical way of thinking and take a sincere look at something new.
If you believe your body can heal itself if the obstacles that keep you in chronic pain are removed, then this website will empower you with the information you need to get well.
