No matter what your job description – chasing after children, swinging a golf club or sitting at a computer, you need a well functioning body. What happens when your body decides not to co-operate and how do you fix it?
Chronic pain can limit or destroy your career
Jan, a mother, has difficulty caring for her two small children, due to severe low back pain. She can’t lift them and uses extreme caution when playing or during any activity, as moving quickly causes a jolt of pain. Being a single parent, hiring a nanny became a necessity. Jan often feels the joys of being a mom have been robbed from her life.
Michael, a software designer, works long hours at the computer. His hip constantly throbs. He has headaches, a stiff neck and weak hands and fingers; all which make it difficult to concentrate. Michael’s job performance is compromised and he has been forced to take leave of absence. He lives with the possibility that someone in better shape may take over his job.
Many prominent athletes have had their careers prematurely ended, due to injuries they were unable to overcome. To name a few:
Bill Walton, basketball center for the Portland Trail Blazers, sustained a foot injury. Multiple surgeries failed to repair the problem and Bill was forced to retire from basketball.
Serena Williams, professional tennis player, injured her left knee while competing. It was surgically repaired, but still continues to give her problems. This has forced Serena to withdraw from numerous events.
Tiger Woods, professional golfer, recently injured his left knee and left Achilles tendon, which have proven to be so debilitating, that he has taken time off the professional golf tour. Tiger’s injuries threaten to end his career prematurely.
Each year, millions of people take time off from work due to pain, resulting in many billions of dollars in loss income, productivity and healthcare expenses. An answer to this problem must be found. That answer lies in learning about a common cause of chronic muscle and joint pain and effectively treating that cause.
What is this common cause of chronic pain that can severely handicap job performance and force you into premature retirement?
Even though it seems like the people above have different chronic pain issues; in fact, the underlying cause of all these problems (headaches, weakness in extremities, low back, hip, knee, ankle, and foot pain) is the same.
All these chronic pain sufferers were born with an abnormal foot structure (the Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity), which causes muscle and joint pain throughout the body.
Painful symptoms arising from these common foot structures can start at any age in life, or (as in the athletes above) after having sustained an injury. It is your abnormal foot structure that does not allow an injury to heal or to recover from surgery. It is this same foot structure which does not allow you to fully benefit from any other pain therapy.
These common inherited foot structures can only be successfully treated using a non surgical/non drug intervention called Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, which was specifically developed to permanently eliminate the pain resulting from the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity.
Because of ignorance of the actual source of chronic muscle and joint pain, the people above have put at risk, or ended their career. If they had been informed that their symptoms are due to an abnormal foot structure, and they had been treated using Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy, their careers would have been extended and the athletes would have continued to excel in their sport.
Years are spent preparing, studying and striving to excel in our chosen profession. Our jobs are an integral and often vital part of our life. It’s a shame to be cut down in one’s prime, by a problem that can be easily identified and non-invasively corrected.
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 muscle and joint pain.
