Nothing Is Worse Than Feeling Great Mentally, Wanting To Take In All
Life Has To Offer...Only To Have Your Enthusiasm Squashed
Because The Pain Just Won't Go Away!
Right? Isn't it sad to feel so alive and full of vigor, and not be able to do all the things you want because your pain is so pervasive, so intruding, and so unfair? Don't you feel downright angry because this pain, these symptoms, just won't go away?
If you do, it's only normal. After all, who wants to be burdened with carrying a load of discomfort and living life through an all-encompassing fog of pain? Pain that's always there when you stand up, sit down, lie down, or even bend over. Pain that's always rearing its head, no matter how hard you try to ignore it.
It's natural for people to try to tough it out and get on with their lives. "If I ignore it long enough, it will go away..." Unfortunately, this isn't the case. Ignoring your pain will only make it worse over time. What was only a mild pain a month ago may become a chronic, crippling pain years down the road.
See, the bad thing about neck and back pain is that it sneaks up on you. The real cause of the pain you're feeling right now may have happened years ago. It may have been such a small injury you may not have noticed it. Or maybe you felt a slight pain, but it went away after a day or week so you didn't think anything of it.
And slowly, over the years, as you continued to do your normal activities, that old injury has secretly gotten worse and worse without you being aware of it. After a time, the straws slowly built up until one day they broke the camel's back. Maybe what finally put you over the edge was that heavy chair you tried to lift, or that time you bent over too quickly, or any one of a hundred things.
Whatever it was, The Fact Is You Are Suffering From Neck or Back Pain As A Result Of A Herniated Disc And You Don't Have To Suffer Anymore!
So what do you do? What choices do you have? See, you wouldn't have requested this special report if you weren't experiencing some level of pain and discomfort. We know you may have already tried getting some relief from over-the-counter drugs, or you may have met with your private doctor.
Let me share with you the story of a woman named Emily.
Emily is a thirty-year-old mother of two who works as a project manager with a local corporation. For the past few years, Emily has suffered from a mild pain in her lower back that would flare up from time to time. Since it had always gone away after a day or so, she knew that if she toughed it out, she would be okay.
One day, in a rush to get the kids to daycare before work, Emily tried to pick up her 4-year old the same way she's always done it. But this time was different. She felt a sharp pain in her back - a pain she had never felt before.
Emily was in pain all day. She tossed and turned all night, but no matter how she laid down, the pain would not go away. Finally, at 2 AM, she sent her husband to the store to find a pain reliever that would help her sleep.
Right away she felt better, but she'd have to take another couple pills every few hours because the pain would come right back as soon as the pills wore off. After a couple weeks, she was taking more pills more often just to keep the pain away so she could get on with her life.
The Shocking Truth About Over-The-Counter Drugs And Why They Don't Really Get Rid Of Neck or Back Pain!
What many drug companies don't want you to know is that their drugs do not cure you of what causes neck or back pain.
You see, these drugs just disable, for a short time, your brain's ability to feel the sensation of pain coming from your back. The pain is still there, you just can't feel it! It's just like sweeping dirt under a rug. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there!
The dirty little secret about these pills is this: because you can't feel any pain, your body has no way to stop you from injuring your back more and more. Pain is your body's way of saying "don't do that!" Because your body is effectively disabled from protecting you, you will only hurt yourself more by taking more pills.
At the same time, you are putting yourself at risk to suffer from the nasty side effects of the most common pain relievers, including damage your stomach, kidneys, and liver. Obviously, using over-the-counter drugs is not the way to go when it comes to getting rid of the real cause of neck or back pain.
After two months of taking pain relief drugs, Emily realized that she was no better off and that she just didn't feel like the same pleasant person she'd always been. Out of desperation, Emily went to the family doctor she had been seeing since she was ten. He had to know how to get rid of her back pain once and for all!
After a brief conversation in the exam room, Dr. Olson told Emily she had probably strained a few muscles in her back. He gave her a pat on the head and a prescription for some stronger pain relievers and some muscle relaxers. "Take a couple days off," he said. "Relax, stay in bed. You'll be back to yourself in no time. If it gets worse, come back in and we'll try something else. "
Emily stayed in bed for two days, taking more and more pills just as her doctor instructed. But things didn't get better. In fact, they only got worse.
Most Doctors Lack The Training & Experience To Effectively Treat YOUR Neck or Back Pain!
What Emily didn't know was that her doctor was never trained to detect or diagnose the real cause of her pain. In fact, most doctors have no idea how to treat someone with neck or back pain. It's just not their specialty. And since they have no background in this area, they make improper diagnoses and deliver improper treatments that just don't work.
You see, neck and back pain is mainly caused by a misalignment of the spine. One bone being just slightly out of whack can cause the nerves in your spine to become compressed. The result is pain. Most doctors are trained to relieve symptoms, to sweep your pain under the rug. All the while, the REAL cause of your pain is still there.
Unless The REAL Cause Of Your Pain Is Treated, You'll Never Get Better!
Emily didn't know about any of this, just like you may not have. But because you now have this knowledge in your hands, you won't have to suffer like Emily did.
Soon enough, Emily was back in Dr. Olson's office, feeling worse than ever. She and her husband seemed to be fighting all the time and her relationships with her kids were no better. Her four-year-old now referred to her as "mean mommy." If Dr. Olson couldn't help her, she didn't know what she would do. Dr. Olson told her physical therapy would be the answer. He told her he knew a great therapist, and before she knew it, her life would be back to normal.
Don't get me wrong. Sometimes physical therapy can help someone tremendously. In some instances, I've even sent some of my own patients to a physical therapist if I thought it was necessary.
Unfortunately, when it comes to most cases of neck or back pain, physical therapy can often only lead to more pain and more serious injuries, or at best, no improvement.
In Mathematical Terms:
Wrong Diagnosis + Wrong Treatment = YOU Still In Pain
You see, the reason behind this goes all the way back to your doctor's ability to diagnose the true cause of your pain. If your doctor cannot clearly identify what is making you hurt, then the instructions he gives to the physical therapist don't stand a chance of working. It's like trying to bake a cake with the recipe for chocolate chip cookies.
Most medical treatments for neck and back pain only focus on removing symptoms. For instance, a cortisone shot may deaden your nerves for a short time, but the pain will still be there when the shot wears off. Medications do much the same thing, but they also leave you open to potentially dangerous side effects. Other treatments, such as physical therapy, are ineffective because they stem from a misdiagnosis.
After two months, Emily returned to her doctor in tears. Her life was a wreck. She was a mere shadow of the woman she once was. She could no longer sit straight in her chair without sharp pains or do anything she once enjoyed without feeling pain and discomfort.
Dr. Olson sat down beside her and put his hand on her shoulder. "Emily, I've done all I can. I'm going to refer you to Dr. Smith. He's a surgeon who's worked with cases like yours before. He's had some success stories you may find interesting, although I can't promise that he'll be able to cure you. You may just have to learn to live with some pain for the rest of your life…"
Believe it or not, these words are spoken all around the country every day. Maybe they've even been spoken to you. To have a surgeon cut you open is a pretty drastic decision. You know you don't want this option. There are too many questions: What if they're wrong? What if my problem doesn't go away? What if it gets worse?
These things happen all the time. In fact,
Back Surgery Is Often The Most Ineffective Form Of Surgery There Is.
Some Studies Have Even Declared A Success Rate Of Only 47-50%!
Most Surgeries Result In Only Temporary Relief Or None At All!
And to top it all off, each time you go under the knife, you need to face the small but potential risk of going under anesthesia and getting an infection!
Listen! You may not have to live with this! You DO have other options! You may not have to be on sleep-inducing drugs to keep the pain under control! You may not have to get used to tingling, numbness, and sharp pains! You should not have to alter your lifestyle because of neck or back pain!
There is a better option! And luckily for Emily and YOU, it's about to be revealed. You're about to...

Now, don't think that because my methods are non-drug and non-surgical they are old-fashioned or low-tech. No way. We use very sophisticated natural protocols to treat the problems that you have developed and can't get rid of. Just because we don't cut you open and view each vertebra under a lens, doesn't mean our treatments aren't at the forefront of healthcare and won't dramatically enhance the quality of your life!

Back Up What I'm Telling You Right Now! What We Do Is Scientifically Correct And
Proven By Over A Thousand Patients Who Used To Suffer...And No Longer Do!
Odds are, we've seen and helped people with the same exact problem you suffer from right now. (Without drugs and surgery, don't forget!)
See, unlike some doctors, and possibly even your friends or spouse, we understand exactly how you feel. In fact, one of the reasons I decided to become a doctor was because I suffered from low back pain. Nothing would work for me until I finally saw a chiropractor who knew exactly what was wrong with me and how to fix it.
We don't think your pain is "in your head" or that you're "exaggerating." We don't think it's something you need to get used to or learn to live with. No.
We know how much you hurt. We know how horrible it is to have a lingering pain that you can't rid of. We know how it feels to not be able to do the activities you used to love or to tell a child "Mommy can't do that with you right now."
When you explain your problems to us, we're not going to downplay them just because they don't appear on the surface or easily show up on an x-ray.
We're not going to feed you lines like "you're just going to have to learn to live with the pain." And we're not going to scare you into undergoing risky and expensive procedures for one of the most misdiagnosed and mistreated conditions in the country...
Neck and Back Pain caused by a Herniated Disc!
Two days before her surgery was scheduled, Emily bumped into an old friend from high school while shopping for groceries. It wasn't long before she was crying on her friend's shoulder explaining everything that she'd been through with her pain, her kids, her job, and her husband.
Concerned, her friend Jessica explained that I had treated her husband a year before, and soon enough he was as good as new. I sat down with Emily and listened to her story. I explained a little about the same method I'm telling you about. Immediately her eyes lit up and she was eager for me to do an on-the-spot exam to find out what was really wrong with her. After a quick and painless Computerized Lower Back Surface Electromyography Test, I spotted a couple problem areas in her back, and from there we designed a Recommended Action Plan to get her out of pain quickly and safely without drugs or surgery.
I'm happy to tell you that now Emily has her life back. She's been pain-free for six months now and she reports to me she's feeling fantastic!

When you have a suffering marriage, for example, instead of going to the bar and covering up your pains and problems with alcohol, you should consult with a counselor specializing in spousal relationships. Similarly, when you have a neck or back problem, you should get help from a health care professional who only focuses on problems such as yours, someone who is experienced in finding and fixing the problem, not covering it up. Does that make sense?
