Hi. I’m Adam Heller and welcome to the video.
Back pain. 118 million in the United States alone suffer what they call chronic pain and 70% of that is attributed to back pain, most of it lower back pain.
It’s treated in a variety of ways: surgically, drugs, obviously you heard a lot about this whole opioid crisis.
There are alternative techniques and everybody trying to figure out how do we eliminate this problem. How do we better it?
There’s a whole body of work called pain management, it’s everywhere. Problem with pain management is by definition it’s not permanent, it’s managing pain. It’s ongoing pain management and none of us really want that to be our end result.
What can be done? Can anything be done?
Well, all these diagnoses, bulging disc, herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, there’s people with fibromyalgia. There’s all of these different diagnoses and all kinds of different great people trying to solve this problem that is really difficult to solve.
Now, there have been some wonderful, really wonderful things that have come up lately that have shown big improvements.
There was a pilot recently done at the Mayo Clinic and they took a group of patients who they weren’t able to help. The average time in pain was 17 years. By the way, the average cost for those people in pain was over $300,000 apiece.
These were people diagnosed with bulging disc and herniated disc and spinal stenosis and fibromyalgia, that big fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease if I didn’t say that, tension and migraine headaches, all kinds of diagnoses.
They used a linguistic only intervention. Just talk. Even though all these people had these structural abnormalities, it was just talk.
The amazing thing that happened was according to the write-up, within 28 days, every single patient, every single patient was pain free and their case closed within 28 days even with the structural abnormalities.
Perhaps, this is a new way to eliminate the back pain that has been treated otherwise. There are certainly different opinions, but the Mayo Clinic write-up is still the Mayo Clinic write-up.
What does this mean for you? It means that perhaps there’s an opportunity you didn’t know about. Perhaps, there’s a way for you to get better, to feel better, to get your life back, to get full physical freedom to get all of that back.
What should you do?
Well, get research, talk with your doctor, talk with your doctors, find out what’s out there, and then at the end of the day, we’re all the ones that make our decision about what’s best for us.
Perhaps, I’ve given you something new to think about, something you didn’t know about today, and you can use that to go forward and learn. I hope this was valuable for you. I thank you for watching and I hope to see you again soon.
