You've been injured in a car accident or on the job.
You are continuing to experience neck pain and associated
headaches. You are worried about symptoms of numbness,
tingling, weakness and pain in your arms and fingers. You
are experiencing low back pain with radiation into your buttocks, legs and feet. You've seen a doctor or several doctors.
You've had some tests that have come back "normal". You've
tried several treatment approaches but have only experienced temporary relief. You are having difficulties keeping
up at work. You have cut down on certain activities at home,
with friends, or for enjoyment. You don't know what to do
or where to go from here. You are irritable, frustrated, afraid
and worried about the future. You wonder if you're going
crazy and if others think "the problem is all in your head".
DO NOT DESPAIR! THERE IS HOPE!YOU ARE
NOT ALONE!THERE ARE MANY THINGS THAT CAN BE
DONE. THERE ARE MANY ISSUES THAT NEED TO BE
First of all, you're not crazy. You are a normal person.
The sources of the pain are not "all in your head." They are
usually in the body. Medical tests and technology still do not
show everything. If the doctor says, "Your test is normal,"
just remember that the tests don't show everything .
However, you are responsible for what is in your
head. What is in your head affects how you recover.
Information helps. No information confuses. Options help.
No options make you feel trapped, imprisoned, tense and
tight in your own muscles, thoughts, feelings, and lifestyle.
