If you’re suffering with chronic pain, there are times when you probably hurt in so many places that you can’t decide where you hurt the most. And….. ..at the same time you may also have breathing or digestive problems, headaches and even problems with your balance. You’re probably wondering how you could possibly have so many different ailments all at the same time and why is this happening to you.
You’ve probably been to a variety of doctors and received multiple diagnoses such as Chronic Pain Syndrome, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome or Fibromyalgia. At first, receiving a diagnosis can be a bit comforting – at least now you know that your problem has a name. But when you ask, ‘What is the cause of this syndrome?’ your doctors will probably tell you that it’s arthritis, multiple injuries, exposure to toxic chemicals or even poor nutrition, old age or bad genes.
Your doctors may even tell you that they don’t know the cause of your pain, or that maybe it’s all in your head.
A young woman recently came to me with a similar experience. For years she suffered with tightness in her neck. Then she started having pain – that comes and goes – in her feet and low back. She saw many doctors, but no one could find the cause of her symptoms. Instead she was given a diagnosis of hysterical hypochondria and placed on antidepressants.
When I initially saw this woman she was upset, depressed and thought she had some kind of progressive, disabling, yet to be diagnosed disease. This poor pain sufferer went through needless agony because no one could determine the real cause of her problems and instead inferred that her symptoms were psychosomatic.
Finding The Cause Of Your Chronic Pain
Without knowing the real cause of your symptoms, there’s no way to effectively treat them. It’s like shooting in the dark. Unfortunately, this leaves you with only one option – pain management.
People often ask me – Is it possible that many of my symptoms can be coming from just one cause? The answer is – YES. Multiple symptoms can all come from one source.
In 2002, I discovered two inherited, abnormal foot structures that I suggest are a common cause of chronic pain syndrome. These two common foot structures – the Rothbarts Foot and the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – cause poor posture, which not only affects the joints and muscles, but also many other organs in the body.
If you have one of these two foot structures, my therapy will correct your bad posture which will in turn, greatly reduce or eliminate the many symptoms associated with your chronic pain syndrome. There is no need to manage chronic pain syndrome, when you can effectively treat the cause.
To find out if you may have one of two common inherited, abnormal foot structures that cause chronic foot pain, take the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire.
As you learn more about my innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting knee, hip and back pain.
