Beat back pain without breaking the bank
I bet you can remember the old stick-shift cars. They sure were great, weren’t they?
They were great right until the moment you felt the clutch slip.
Then, they weren’t so great. You knew immediately what that little slip meant: Open that wallet up, because there’s an expensive repair in your future.
Most of us drive automatics now. But there’s another slip you may experience that also means trouble – and it’s not in your car.
It’s in your back!
One little slip, twinge, twitch, or tweak in the back or neck usually means pain is on the way – and when it arrives, it could be time for some expensive “repairs.”
Staggering new numbers show just how much we spend – and in most cases WASTE – in the struggle against chronic back and neck pain, and it’s a whole lot more than you might imagine.
These pain conditions now cost $87.6 billion per year!
That’s almost as much as the $88.1 billion we spend on heart disease, and not too far behind the $101.4 billion spent each year on diabetes.
And what are we getting for that money?
Not a heck of a lot.
If anything, the numbers are proof that the mainstream’s drugs-and-surgery approach is built to FAIL. After all, if it did anything to cure these pains, the cost would drop as patients got real and lasting relief.
Instead, those costs are rising like dough… and it’s costing you dough, too. The cost of dealing with back and neck pain is jumping by 6 percent per year, or between three and four times the rate of inflation!
It’s time to stop throwing good money after bad.
The mainstream clearly has no answers for common neck and back pain – and some of their treatments can actually make it worse.
Surgery fails so often there’s even a name for it: failed back syndrome.
Notice what they did there? It’s not their treatments that failed – it’s your back.
Talk about adding insult to injury!
You don’t need to deal with the insults and failures. There are safe, natural, and science-backed therapies proven to SUCCEED, chasing away the pain so you can stop worrying about your neck and back and return to doing the things you love.
Maybe you can even finally restore that classic rusting in your garage. You know, the one with the stick shift. (Just don’t expect your kids or grandkids to know how to drive it!)
The best treatment will depend on the cause, but in general, topical MSM and natural anti-inflammatory supplements are great for easing pain in the short run. Acupuncture, spinal manipulation, and cold laser can all bring that elusive long-term relief.
I offer all of these therapies and more here at the Stengler Center for Integrative Medicine in the San Diego area.
