Osteoarthritis (different from Rheumatoid) occurs when protective cartilage wears down. Many scientific studies have shown that even when osteoarthritis is apparent, it does not cause symptoms.
Sciatica is a label for pain radiating along the sciatic nerve. The nerve branches from the lower back down past the buttocks and down the legs. The symptoms are often incorrectly blamed on a spinal abnormality such as a herniated disc or bulging disc. This is almost never the actual cause of the pain, tingling, [...]
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an incorrect label describing a compression of the median nerve as it travels through the wrist. The symptoms are often incorrectly blamed on repetitive use. The latest science and neuroscience have shown this to be untrue.
Spinal Stenosis is perhaps the most common incorrect diagnosis in the paradigm of chronic pain. The incorrect theory is that a narrowing of the spaces within your spine places pressure on nerves causing often intense pain. This is almost never the case because it would take a tremendous narrowing to actually case the pain. Also, [...]
Spondylitis is an arthritic condition that is often considered the source of pain. Studies and experience have demonstrated that this rarely is the cause of symptoms.
Undiagnosed pain is often the most frustrating and difficult to understand. The pain and other symptoms are real. However, there is nothing structural or physiological that is causing the pain. These symptoms almost always are successfully eliminated using the process.
Similar to the Bulging Disc, Herniated Disc is also one of the most common incomplete diagnoses of back and neck pain. It is also commonly incorrectly blamed for causing sciatica. Scientific studies have shown that Herniated Disc is responsible for pain in less than 3% of cases. 2 of 3
Bulging Disc is one of the most common incomplete diagnoses of pain. Incomplete because the science has demonstrated that while a bulging disc may be present, it is almost never the cause of pain. 2 of 3 people that have never experienced pain have bulging and/or herniated discs.
